Syrian al Qaeda rebel group ISIS pledges to conquer Jerusalem, Rome

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.”
