Foreign ISIS Fighter in Iraq: We Will Conquer Jerusalem, Rome, and Spain

#4281 | 02:10
Source: The Internet

In a video-clip posted on the Internet on May 17, 2014, a Jihadist from Kosovo, fighting with ISIS in Iraq, brandishes his sword and proclaims: "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." As the crowds cheer and shout "Allah Akbar," he holds up a passport and tears it up.


Following are excerpts:


Kosovo volunteer: 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.


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


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.”


Takes his sword out of its sheath and brandishes it


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.


Say: “Allah Akbar!”


Crowd: Allah Akbar!


Kosovo volunteer: Say: “Allah Akbar!”


Crowd: Allah Akbar!


Kosovo volunteer: Say: “Allah Akbar!”


Crowd: Allah Akbar!


Holds up a passport


Kosovo volunteer: These are your passports, oh tyrants all over the world. By Allah, we are Muslims! We are Muslims! We are Muslims!


Several Jihadists tear up their passports
