The Kaaba is Threatened

The Twitter account, which purportedly sent this message: “If Allah wills, we will kill those who worship stones in Mecca and destroy the Kaaba. People go to Mecca to touch the stones, not for Allah” has been suspended. 

Therefore, the trustworthiness of the said account as supposedly belonging to an ISIS member has not been verified.

APA quoted the member Abu Turab Al Mugaddasih – basing on Turkish media reports – as having declared that the Sunni jihadists will destroy the Kaaba in Mecca, Saudi Arabia, which is Islam's most sacred site. 

The ISIS plan is to seize control of Arar in Saudi Arabia, which is very close to the Iraq border and from there, launch operations against the country. The city is only a fifteen-hour drive away from Mecca – site of the Hajj pilgrimage which all observant Muslims are expected to do at least once. 

If indeed the statement is from the ISIS member, Muslims everywhere are sure to freak out! And to add insult to injury, these so-called Muslims even call their fellow adherents, stone-worshippers!
