NEW YORK (PIX11) -- Users on an ISIS message board have threatened Times Square, providing instructions on how to carry out a pipe bomb attack in one of the busiest tourist areas of New York City, according to a Vocativ report.

One of the posts titled, "To the Lone Wolves in America: How to Make a Bomb in Your Kitchen, to Create Scenes of Horror in Tourist Spots and Other Targets," gives step-by-step instructions on how to build a bomb with common household items.

The post encourages attacks on Times Square and the Las Vegas strip, Vocativ reports, but other tourist and commuter hubs in the US are mentioned.

It also includes sections of the 2010 article "How to Make a Bomb From the Kitchen of Your Mom" from the Al-Qaeda magazine "Inspire."

The article gives details on how to make a pressure cooker bomb, and was allegedly used as a guide for the Tsarnaev brothers who bombed the Boston Marathon in 2013, which left 3 people dead and  hundreds injured.

Speaking at a press conference Tuesday, Police Commissioner Bill Bratton said that although there has no credible threat to New York City, the potential for terrorists to attempt an attack "is very real."

"We're concerned with the capabilities of ISIS much more so than Al-Qaeda was ever able to ... their ability to use social media to try and spread their recruitment efforts, to try and inspire," Bratton said.

"This is a new world, if you will, the evolving world of terrorism and we're staying ahead of it."

      You may be on to something. In the basement of the Saudi Arabian Embassy the queer Native-Arabs there muster and go out clubbing–with no females–and com back with none. But they’re dressed to the bone and have the best luxury cars. That’s why such cliques love the U.S./West. Sodomites are welcome here, from any nation.

    Reproductively insecure Gestapo-lice are too busy locking-up underprivileged Blackmales to be “ahead of ISIS” in NYC. While non-Black criminals are not prosecuted and released early, the in-home terrorism by Europeans will keep the U.S. a hotbed for such acts. This proves God works in mysterious ways (“Big Payback”).

      All this hate is not good for your constitution, nor for your future success.
      Get a job; any job.
      Get off welfare.
      Go to night school and improve your educational skills.
      Get that chip off your shoulder and take personal responsibility.
      Grow up and start acting like a mature person.
      No drugs and no alcohol.


    Any one with an IQ over 60, would know George JR,George SR and the CIA, where responsible for 911,and with George SR’S father being Prescott Bush, founder of the CIA and well known NAZI. hmmm….. let me think, we’ve have the BBC reporting building 7 pulled before it even happened,1400 degree burning jet fuel (kerosene) melting steel that needs at least 2500 to melt,three accused hijackers still living, I guess they crawled out of the wreckage and dropped their passports that the FBI found,cruise missile through the pentagon,thermite rivers of steel flowing two weeks later. I could go on for days. Now with our coked out queer,Kenyan, muslim monkey, Barry Soetoro at the helm,with at least 20 impeachable offenses, including 130 million dollars to al qaeda, I though they were the responsible for 911. That’s why he renamed them ISIS, know with Barry leaving the borders wide open, I would expect another CIA backed terrorist attack very soon .

      You are about the most ignorant person ever. The United States would not intentionally kill its own people and blame it on terrorist. Your IQ is well below 60.

        Lmao @ Steven. Someone is obviously ill informed. YES, they WOULD.. and HAVE before. Many times. 9/11 and the Boston Bombing, Aurora and Sandy Hook, were not the first time nor the last. Oh wait, I guess there aren’t over 800 concentration camps in America either, that can house over 50 million Americans.. Just sitting, waiting.. For you and me? Because the “UNITED STATES, INC.” would never do such a thing? LMFAO!! Ask the tens of thousands of Japanese Americans that were locked away for no cause, rhyme or reason, after the instigated attack on Pearl Harbor. Proven historical fact. Someone needs to do some homework. A great man once said “Never underestimate the intelligence of the American people.. They have NONE”. So true.. So sad.. Alas.
