An Arab-Israeli member of Isis (now known as the Islamic State) has claimed that the terror group takes pleasure in “drinking blood” of its enemies.
Rabie Shehada, otherwise known as “the Palestinian slayer”, spoke openly in a new video of the Islamic group’s love of death.
“I swear we are a people who love death for the sake of God just as you love to live,” says Shehada.
“I swear we are a people who love drinking blood. We came to slaughter you,” he adds. “We love dying for God as much as you love life.”
According to Dubai-based outlet Al-Arabiya, Shehada, 26, is from the northern Israeli city of Nazareth which holds a majority-Arab population.
Shehada studied mechanical engineering in Nazareth before quitting university and disappearing just three months into his studies.
It is reported that he went to Turkey before moving into Syria to join forces with the moderate Free Syrian Army (FSA) against Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.
