‘Not Afraid’ of Islamic State’s Call to Kill Citizens: france

France sought to reassure its citizens Monday that it was prepared to head off attacks on home soil after the Islamic State group made a chilling call for Muslims to kill civilians whose governments were acting against the jihadists.‘France is not afraid,’ Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said repeatedly during a televised statement in response to the threat against members of a US-led anti-jihadist coalition.

‘France is prepared to respond to their threat,’ said Cazeneuve, adding security forces were ‘fully mobilised’. ‘This is not the first time France has been threatened by terrorist groups who attack the values of tolerance ... respect for human rights and democracy, which France has upheld through its secular history,’ he said. France on Friday joined the US in carrying out air strikes against the IS group.
