NEW: Paris deputy mayor says intelligence will be key to security going forward

ISIS threatens to strike the United States "in its stronghold, Washington"

French President Francois Hollande vows to destroy terrorism

(CNN) —  

Declaring that “France is at war,” President Francois Hollande on Monday proposed sweeping new laws and more spending on public safety in response to Friday’s terror attacks in Paris – promising to eradicate terrorism, but not at the expense of his country’s freedom.

At the same time, ISIS threatened the United States that it could be next.

“I swear to God, as we struck France in its stronghold Paris, we will strike America in its stronghold, Washington,” an ISIS fighter declared in a video released Monday.

The speech, and ISIS’ latest threat, came as police scoured France and Belgium in a hunt for suspects in Friday’s brutal attacks, which left at least 129 dead and 352 wounded.

Hollande calls for new laws

In a rare speech to a joint session of parliament, Hollande urged lawmakers to approve a three-month extension of the nation’s state of emergency, new laws that would allow authorities to strip the citizenship from French-born terrorists and provisions making it easier to deport suspected terrorists.

He also proposed adding 5,000 positions to the country’s national paramilitary police force and said he would not propose cuts in the nation’s defense spending until at least 2019.

He said France would intensify its attacks on ISIS and called for a U.N. Security Council meeting to discuss the worldwide threat posed by the group.

“We are not committed to a war of civilizations, because these assassins don’t represent any civilization,” Hollande said. “We are in a war against terrorism, jihadism, which threatens the whole world.”

“Terrorism will not destroy France, because France will destroy it,” Hollande said.

Raids across France

French police carried out raids around the country overnight into Monday, bringing to 150 the number of raids under the country’s state of emergency since Friday.

A rocket launcher and bulletproof vest were among the items authorities seized, French Interior Minister Bernard Cazeneuve said. The interior minister said he had ordered that 104 people be put under house arrest since the attacks.

In Belgium, authorities arrested seven people in weekend raids. Five of them have been released, according to Jean-Pascal Thoreau of Belgium’s federal prosecutor’s office.

As details emerge about the seven terrorists killed in the attacks, an international manhunt is underway for Salah Abdeslam, who has already managed to slip through the fingers of authorities at least once.

Parisians respond to tragedy with silent respect and defiance

Suspect at large described as dangerous

Abdeslam is a 26-year-old French citizen who was born in Belgium, French police said in a public request for information, warning that he is dangerous and should not be approached. Belgium has issued an international warrant for his arrest.

Hours after the attacks, he was driving in the direction of the Belgian border when police stopped and questioned him, a source close to the investigation into the Paris attacks said.

The French newspaper Le Monde reported that police hadn’t yet linked him to the Paris attacks when they stopped him and two other people in a black Volkswagen Golf. When Belgian police stopped the car later Saturday, Abdeslam was no longer in it. Now, his whereabouts are unknown.

Investigators haven’t said much about how they believe Abdeslam is tied to the shootings and bombings that targeted people at restaurants, bars, a concert venue and a sports stadium.
