A video recently released by the Islamic States (ISIS) urges Muslims to "slaughter" Westerners from the multiple nations which have united to fight the deadly terrorist organization.

In a perturbing 42-minute speech, spokesman for the terrorist group, Abu Mohammed al-Adnani, says: "If you can kill a disbelieving American or European, especially the spiteful and filthy French, or an Australian, or a Canadian ... including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against Islamic State, then rely upon Allah, and kill him.

"Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him."

Adnani added that both civilians and members of the military are "disbelievers" and therefore "both of their blood and wealth is legal for you to destroy."

US Secretary of State John Kerry recently stated that over 50 countries have pledged to join an international coalition against IS, which is thought to have between 20,000 and 31,500 members fighting to create an Islamic caliphate, or a state governed by the Muslim religion. Currently, the group controls large portions of both Iraq and Syria.

Last week Australia committed a 600-strong military force to the coalition. While prime minister Tony Abbott said there would be no boots on the ground in Iraq, he noted that the mission could extend into combat operations.

However, Adnani mocks the coalition's decision to not enter into a war on the ground in Iraq and Syria.

"No, it will be drawn and dragged. It will come down to the ground and it will be led to its death, grave, and destruction" Adnani says, referring to U.S. president Obama as "the mule of the Jews" and ridiculing the suggestion that the Islamic State is not truly Muslim.

Adnani continues to threaten Western nations, stating, "You will not feel secure even in your bedrooms. You will pay the price when this crusade of yours collapses, and thereafter we will strike you in your homeland, and you will never be able to harm anyone afterwards.

"O America, O allies of America, and O crusaders, know that the matter is more dangerous than you have imagined and greater than you have envisioned," he adds.

"We have warned you that today we are in a new era, an era where the [Islamic] State, its soldiers, and its sons are leaders, not slaves.

"We will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women, by the permission of Allah, the Exalted."

The video was released just days after France carried out airstrikes against ISIS, which killed dozens of jihadist fighters in northern Iraq.The U.S. also announced further airstrikes to take place this week..

As part of the effort to fight ISIS, President Obama will also urge the United Nations to UN increase efforts banning potential jihadists from travelling overseas.
