ISIS threatens to ‘slaughter Jews like sheep’ in new Hebrew video

ISIS has issued its second Hebrew-language propaganda video in two weeks, threatening to slaughter Jews. A small number of Israeli-Arabs have traveled to Syria to join the terrorist organization.

“My message to the officers and soldiers and all the Jews, the grandchildren of the monkeys and the pigs, we are coming for you from around the world to slaughter you like sheep. Prepare for war – a big war, the war of the stone and the trees. And this will happen soon, it is not far off, with God’s help,” said a knife-wielding ISIS member on video, his face blurred out.

On October 23, ISIS published a similar video, its first-ever in Hebrew. “Soon there will not be a single Jew in Jerusalem and throughout the country, and we shall move on until we eradicate this disease worldwide,” intoned the video’s balaclava-clad speaker. “We are advancing toward you from the north, the south, Sinai and Damascus. From all over the world we will come after you to finish you off,” he concluded in Arabic.

The first video was removed by YouTube for violating the website’s content policies. Israel’s Army Radio said the authenticity of the video, which did not mention ISIS by name, had not yet been verified.

ISIS also published a video on Saturday to support its claim that it is responsible for bringing down the Russian charter flight that crashed in the Sinai Peninsula. Russia has increased military assistance to the Assad regime in Syria for use against both rebel groups and the Islamic State. However, ISIS’s claim is likely implausible as the aircraft had reached its target altitude before crashing, putting it out of reach of the terrorist group’s missile arsenal.
