Al Arabiya: “The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has shocked the world with its beheadings and mass killings and now an alleged member has declared that the group relishes “drinking blood.”
Self-claimed ISIS militant Rabie Shehada, known as “the Palestinian slayer,” made the chilling statement in a video recently posted online.
“I swear we are a people who love death for the sake of God just as you love to live. I swear we are a people who love drinking blood. We came to slaughter you.”
Opinion: I usually don’t post sensational types of articles. But in our book (Page 44) Antichrist: The Search For Amalek, we said this:
“After the Red Sea crossing and the drowning of the Egyptian army, the next attack on the Israelites came from a tribe called the Amalekites. Their leader was an illegitimate grandson of Esau named Amalek, who inherited his grandfather’s intense hatred (Gen. 27:41) for his brother Jacob. While the Egyptians failed to harm the Israelites, the Amalekites succeeded in doing so.
This enemy of Israel bore the name Amalek (Hebrew ‘am, people or nation; and laqaq, to lap or lick) to denote the rapidity with which he moved against Israel, for like a swarm of locusts, he flew upon them; the name furthermore designated the purpose of this enemy, who came to lick the blood of Israel.”
The difference is that they are not doing this to Israel … yet.
