The Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist organization published a new video Sunday in its latest anti-Jewish propaganda series of clips, threatening to go to war against Israel and Jews as a whole.
The 40-second video shows the ISIS jihadi speaking fluent Hebrew but with an Arabic accent, which may lead to the possibility that he is an Arab-Israeli or Palestinian.
“My message to the [Israel Defense Force] officers and soldiers and all the Jews – we will fight you with God’s help, we will come for you from across the world and we will slaughter you like sheep, prepare for the big war, the war of stone and wood. This is be soon and not long,” the terrorist said, according to a translation by the Jerusalem Post.
Continuing his threats, the militant added: “We will enter Al-Aqsa mosque as conquerors, using our cars as bombs to strike the Jewish ramparts.”
During his speech, the man–whose face is pixelated to hide his identity–brandishes a knife while flanked on both sides by two masked militants holding rifles.
“Do what you will in the meantime until we reach you. Then we will charge you ten-fold for the crimes” committed against Palestinians, the terrorist concluded.
The message was directed to “all the Jews, grandchildren of monkeys and pigs,” read the text of the ISIS video.

Many more radical Islamic leaders — such as countless Palestinian officials, Saudi sheikhs, and former Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi — have popularized comparing Jews to the aforementioned animals. This could be due to the fact that the Koran refers to Jews as “apes” and “pigs” in three separate instances.
Sunday’s clip marks the second time that ISIS has published a video exclusively in Hebrew. The first video, titled, “A message to the Jews, the first enemy of the Muslims,” appeared on social media in late October.
“We promise you that soon, not one Jew will be left in Jerusalem or across Israel and we will continue until we eradicate this disease from the world.” a masked jihadi said in Nazi-like fashion. “We will advance towards you from everywhere, from the north and the south, from Sinai, from everywhere.”
Meanwhile, ISIS has continued its Middle East insurgency through its base of operations in Syria and Iraq. The group also has extensive assets in Libya, Egypt, Yemen, and Afghanistan.
