    According to the latest issue of ISIL’s propaganda magazine, Islamic State jihadist group (ISIL) could obtain a nuclear weapon within 12 month.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) The Islamic State jihadist group (ISIL) could obtain a nuclear weapon within 12 month, according to the latest issue of the ISIL’s propaganda magazine Dabiq.

    “The Islamic State has billions of dollars in the bank, so they call on their wilayah in Pakistan to purchase a nuclear device through weapons dealers with links to corrupt officials in the region," the article, attributed to British photojournalist John Cantlie held hostage by the ISIL for over two years, said.

    Once the ISIL buys the bomb in Pakistan, according to the article, it would transport it through Lybia and Nigeria to the West.

    “Drug shipments from Columbia bound for Europe pass through West Africa, so moving other types of contraband from East to West is just as possible,” the article pointed out.

    Cantlie stressed that the ISIL is looking to do “something big” on the US soil and it will be more real “a year from today.”

    “The more groups that pledge allegiance [to the ISIL] the more possible it becomes to pull off something truly epic,” he added.

    The Islamic State has been rallying militants from across the region under its banners since it rose to prominence in Iraq and Syria in summer 2014. It now runs cells in North Africa, Yemen, Pakistan and Afghanistan

    In November 2014, an affiliate of the Pakistani militant organization Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), Jundallah, claimed allegiance to the ISIL.

    In April 2015, Nigeria's notorious Boko Haram terrorist group also pledged allegiance to the Sunni ISIL movement and changed its name to Islamic State's West Africa Province (ISWAP).

    Last week, the jihadist fighters from the Mali-based militant group Mourabitoun pledged allegiance to the ISIL movement.

    • They will obtain the bomb in time for the "October Surprise" in the US elections. Already the psychopaths on the right in the US are stating that they will use preemptive attacks against US enemies. So a major attack on the US just before the election in November will galvanize the ignorant masses to support such a psychotic ideology. Dick Chaney has already state that the next attack will be worst and he should know since he helped to plan and carry out the first attack. It will be a real nuclear bomb or a so called "dirty bomb." There have been many reported thefts in Mexico of radio-active material. REMEMBER you hear the "breaking news" story here on Sputnik first!
