Abdullah Elmir threatened Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Barack Obama in the video.
He told his family he was going on a fishing trip.

AU News reported:

In the video, 17-year-old Abdullah Elmir from Sydney made threats against Australia, America and Britain, warning the terrorists can’t be stopped.

It is believed to be the first time Prime Minister Tony Abbott has been explicitly mentioned by name in an Islamic State propaganda tape.

“To Obama, to Tony Abbott, I say this: These weapons that we have, these soldiers we will not stop fighting, we will not put down our weapons until we reach your lands.”

Elmir, who is also known as the ‘Ginger Jihadist’, threatens revenge against western leaders over airstrikes on Islamic State militants in Syria and Iraq.

A relative of Elmir’s, who did not want to be named, has condemned the video.

“What a stupid idiot,” they told The Daily Telegraph.

“We never associated with him, that guy was brainwashed, I don’t know what these kids get into.”

Well said.
