In a video posted on the Internet on November 3, ISIS militants are shown handing out candy to celebrate the October 31 "downing" of the Russian plane over the Sinai. A militant speaking in Russian and holding a knife addresses Putin, saying: "We will attack you in your own lands, we will crush you, we will slaughter you and finish you off."

Following are excerpts:

Title: "The Downing of the Russian Plane Revenge for Our People in Syria"

Scenes of ISIS members handing out candy

ISIS member speaking in Russian, punctuating his words with a knife: In the name of Allah, the Merciful, the Compassionate. All praise be to Allah, the powerful, the Firm, and prayers upon the Prophet Muhammad, who was sent with a sword as mercy for all of Mankind. We would like to congratulate our brothers in the Islamic State, especially those in the Sinai Province, for downing the plane of the infidel Russian Crusaders. We say to them: We are with you, we love you, and we will complete what you have begun. Allah willing, we will crush those infidels, we will drive them out of our lands, and we will even reach their own lands.


As for you, Putin, you swine, I say to you: If you thought that by sending your planes, and by mobilizing your soldiers, you could crush our state, let me tell you that you are wrong, and you and your people will regret your actions. The plane that we downed in Sinai is the best evidence, oh Putin, you swine. Allah willing, we will reach each and every one of you. We will not make do with downing your planes. We will attack you in your own lands, we will crush you, we will slaughter you and finish you off. You will be defeated, and you will pay dearly for coming to our countries. Just as you bombed our innocent people with your planes, we struck your plane and killed 240 of your people. Allah willing, we will continue on this path, and nothing will stop us, because Allah is with us.
