On November 5, 2016, the Islamic State (ISIS), via Al-Hayat Media, released a seven-page article in English threatening American Muslims if they vote in the November 8 U.S. presidential election. Most of the article is directed at Muslims in the U.S., lashing out at them for participating in the democratic process and warning them of the consequences of such actions. It accuses all American Muslims who vote of apostasy and heresy, and calls on ISIS supporters to spill their blood if they do not repent. Similarly, it calls for killing "Crusader" (Christian) voters, including women, who, it says, "are no longer mere wives serving Crusader husbands and raising cross-worshiping children," but female voters who are part of the democratic system that decrees that "crusades be waged against Islam and the Muslims." The article concludes with a threat to the elections, praying that Allah will "make this year's U.S. presidential election a dreadful calamity like no other to have struck America throughout its pathetic history."
