Conservative pundits believe a recent incident in Sweden in which some citizens were threatened by ISIS could be a precursor to what could happen in the United States.
Do ISIS threats in Sweden foreshadow the U.S.?

The Swedish government was recently thrown into a state of panic after dozens of its citizens received threatening letters signed by ISIS, offering them three choices: conversion to Islam, payment of a religious tax (jizya), or decapitation.

Following is the translation of one of those letters:

"In the name of Allah, the merciful, full of grace. You who are not believers will be decapitated in three days in your own house; we will bomb your rotten corpses afterwards. You must choose between these three choices: 1. Convert to Islam. 2. Pay the jizya [religious tax] for protection. 3. Or else, you will be decapitated. The police will not prevent or save you from you being murdered. (Death comes to all of you)."

Some critics are concerned the same or similar situation could come to America's shores if President Obama is allowed to move forward with his plan to bring thousands of Muslim refugees into the U.S.

Pratt, Larry (GOA)Larry Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America, says the threats-by-letter from Islamic jihadists is forcing Europeans to realize that they're at risk.

"They all of a sudden have large groups of hostile neighbors dropped in right next to them – [and] it's really a terrifying situation," says Pratt. "So hopefully they can actually stop the influx of Muslims [and] send back Muslims who have already been deposited in their country."

Sandy RiosSandy Rios, director of governmental affairs at the American Family Association, offers a dire warning to her fellow Americans.

"... This is what people in Europe are facing because they have allowed an unrestricted, uncontrolled – I would argue – invasion from Muslim countries into their sovereign territory. And this is what America faces," she adds. "I think this a precursor of what's to come."

Rios says it's the political class that "always tells us that we should be more like Europe – and it looks like, ironically, we very well may be."

Christians living in Sweden have been warned to 'convert to Islam or die' in a string of threatening messages linked to the Islamic State.

Members of the Assyrian community are understood to have been targeted with sinister graffiti daubed on restaurants and businesses in Gothenburg – a hotbed for jihadist recruitment.

The messages bear all the hallmarks of the chilling psychological warfare employed by ISIS in the Middle East, but as yet Swedish police have been unable to track down those responsible.

Markus Samuelsson, one of 3,000 Assyrian Christians living in Gothenburg, said he found the walls of his restaurant covered with the messages 'convert or die' and 'the caliphate is here'.

The latter is a reference to the terror group's attempt to create a warped form of Islamic government which has seen it clamp down on religious freedoms with shocking brutality across Iraq and Syria.

Mr Samuelsson, who owns Le Pain Francois, told Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter: 'I felt a sudden chill down my spine. It's terribly painful. We feel threatened.'

The same messages, along with the ISIS logo, were also painted on a neighbouring pizzeria, while other non-Assyrian-owned businesses were left unscathed, it was reported by Breitbart.

The warnings were also accompanied with the Arabic letter ن – a symbol which has been used ISIS in the Middle East to donate Christians.

It was painted on doors of Christian homes in Mosul, Iraq, to allow militants to identify and drive them out when they seized the city last year.

At least 150 jihadists – more than from the United States – are believed to have left Gothenburg to join ISIS, according to Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet.

Meanwhile, terrorism expert Magnus Ranstorp has called the city 'the Swedish Centre for Jihadists'.

Earlier this week, the U.S. State Department released a report detailing how ISIS had spearheaded a campaign of attacks last year by militant extremist groups on religious freedom across the world.

In the territories of its would-be caliphate, it said ISIS militants have forced centuries-old Christian communities to convert, pay a ruinous tax or die, while kidnapping, selling and raping thousands of women and children on the basis for their faith.

Assyrians, who are indigenous to the Middle East, are one of the oldest branches of Christianity, dating back to 1AD.
