The fighter, Abu Safiyya from Chile, claims to be standing on the Iraq border with Syria.

In the clip, titled The End of Sykes-Picot, Safiyya says that the ISIS will eventually break all of the Middle East borders to make way to Jerusalem.



"This is not the first border we will break," he says of the border he is standing on. "God will break all barriers..Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon...all of the them until we reach Jerusalem. This is the first of many barriers we will break." 

ISIS – the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria – is a jihadist terrorist organization that has already taken large areas in Syria and made significant gains in Iraq. It is now in the process of setting up a hard-core Islamic state in the heart of the Middle East.

ISIS, with its recent takeover of the only Iraqi border crossing to Jordan, set off alarm bells that the latter country could be the next to find itself engulfed in jihadist mayhem.
