In a chilling video discovered online, a jihadist from Kosovo, who is fighting for ISIS, the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham, in Syria, draws his sword and calls for the conquering of Jerusalem.

On Monday, MEMRI, the Middle East Media Research Institute, said the video was posted on Saturday.

MEMRI translated and transcribed the short video.

The fighter, surrounded by a group of men, says, “In the name of Allah, blessings and prayers upon the Messenger of Allah. Thanks be to Allah, who enabled us to travel on His path and join the Islamic state in Iraq and Syria. We praise Allah, who has joined us with the lions of ISIS everywhere. We bless Allah, who has enabled us to pledge allegiance to the emir of the Believers, Abu Bakr Al-Qurayshi al-Baghdadi.”

Iran Reopens Embassy in Saudi Arabia as Saudis Seek Regional Recalibration

Iran on Tuesday reopened its embassy in Saudi Arabia, marking the beginning of the end of a seven-year diplomatic freeze...

“Oh our Emir, we have pledged to obey you, we have pledged to die. Lead us to wherever Allah commands you.”

The fighter recalls a passage from the Jewish patriarch Abraham in breaking with his father’s tradition of idol worship, but, then goes on to apply it to Jews and Christians, monotheistic religions that stem from Abraham’s revelation:

“To the tyrants and infidels wherever they may be, we say the same thing that Abraham said to his father: ‘Indeed, we disassociate ourselves from you, and from whatever you worship other than Allah. We have renounced you, and between you and us, eternal animosity and hatred have appeared, until you believe in Allah alone.'”

“We say to you, as the Prophet Muhammad said: ‘We have brought slaughter upon you,'” the fighter says, as he unsheathes his sword and raises it above his head.

“Know this, oh infidels: ‘By Allah, we shall cleanse the Arabian Peninsula of you, you filth. We shall conquer Jerusalem from you, oh Jews! We shall conquer Rome and Andalusia, Allah willing.'”

He yells, “Say: ‘Allah Akbar!'”

And the crowd responds, “Allah Akbar!”

They repeat it, and then the fighter says, “These are your passports, oh tyrants all over the world. By Allah, we are Muslims! We are Muslims! We are Muslims!”

They tear up their passports and drop the pages on the ground.
