The Islamic State aired its first Hebrew-language video on social media Friday morning.
Titled "A message to the Jews, the first enemy of the Muslims," the narrator, with his face hidden under a black mask with only slits for his eyes, begins.
"To all the Jews who conquered the land of the Muslims, the real war has not yet started. All that you had before this was child's play compared to what is going to happen to you in the near future, Allah willing," he says, according to a YNet translation.
Some Israelis noted that his thickly Arab-accented Hebrew probably means he's an Israeli Arab or a Palestinian Arab who spent time in Israel either working or in jail.
"Do whatever you want in the meantime until we reach you. Then we will make you pay back 10 times for all the crimes you've committed, and we assure you that 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," he says.
"Look what happened to you after several vehicular attacks carried out by our Palestinian brothers. You flipped out after the first one and you feared all fast drivers. You even feared anyone carrying something in his hand. This is just your level," he continues.
His claim that Israelis have "flipped out" falls short of the reality, where day-to-day life continues despite the attacks.
With each terror attack, the Israel Defense Forces provides details as soon as they're confirmed.
The latest upsurge in violence is not by any means the country's first experience with terrorism, and most are handling it much better than the narrator would like. Instilling fear is part and parcel of Islamic terrorism.
"Think even for a few seconds what will happen to you when tens of thousands, Allah willing, come after you from all over the world to slaughter you and throw you into the trash for good. Aside from the vehicles and bombs, the smallest child is ready to get on this car and send you straight to hell," he says in typical Islamic rhetoric.
In rhetoric reminiscent of Iran's Ayatollah Khamenei and Hezbollah's Hassan Nasrallah, he promises that ISIS will wipe Israel off the map.
"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 says, ending the tirade in Arabic with a daggar in hand.
In related news, the IDF lifted a gag order Sunday morning on a 23-year-old Israeli Arab from the town of Jaljulya in Samaria who used a hand glider to cross into Syria from the Golan Heights on Saturday, presumably to join ISIS.
The Golan Heights is a popular spot for hand gliding so it was unclear initially if someone had gone off course. As soon as the hand glider was spotted, the IDF began a search-and-rescue operation using helicopters, drones and ground troops.
On Sunday, the IDF confirmed their findings and the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) launched an investigation to determine if ISIS' newest recruit had ties with other Islamic terror groups.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu strongly recommended revoking his Israeli citizenship.
