“This is a message to all the Jews, who are the Muslims’ No. 1 enemy,” says the Islamic State jihadi in the video. Why, from the Qur’an: “You will surely find the most intense of the people in animosity toward the believers to be the Jews” (5:82). Not that this has anything to do with Islam.
The Islamic State terror group posts a video in Hebrew supposedly addressed to an Israeli audience warning that “not one Jew will be left alive” in the country.
A masked man in green fatigues faces the camera and speaks in fluent, if slightly French-accented, Hebrew.
“This is a message to all the Jews, who are the Muslims’ No. 1 enemy,” he says.
“The real war has not begun and everything you have experienced so far has been child’s play — nothing compared to what will happen to you soon enough, inshallah [God willing].”
“We promise you that soon, not one Jew will be left [alive] in Jerusalem or across Israel and we will continue until we eradicate this disease [Judaism?] from the world,” he goes on.
“Look at what has happened to you in a few vehicular and stabbing attacks from our brothers in Palestine,” he mocks. “You lost your minds and started fearing every driver that sped up. You were even scared of every person carrying something in their hand.
“What will happen to you when tens of thousands [of Muslim fighters] arrive from across the world to slaughter you?” he wonders.
“The borders of Sykes-Picot will not protect you, and like we blurred the borders between Syria and Iraq, we will do so between Syria and Jordan and then Syria and Palestine,” he says in reference to the 1916 secret agreement between France and and the UK to divide the Arab provinces of the Ottoman Empire.
“This isn’t just talk,” he says — if one wasn’t yet convinced that the Islamic State doesn’t just talk. “We will advance towards you from everywhere, from the north and the south, from Sinai, from everywhere.
“We see your crimes every day and we will settle scores,” he says, before pulling out a knife from his vest and citing a verse from the Koran promising victory to Muslims.
