By now you’ve probably seen some of the videos that have emerged in the last few months showing ISIS terrorists posing with rifles, grenades, rocket launchers and other weapons in the Middle East.
And while they’re all impressive in their own way, none of them are quite as inspiring as a new video from a young man in Northern Ontario, Canada.
A short clip from an ISIS recruitment video posted on YouTube by a British man has quickly gone viral, with more than 5.7 million views and counting.
The video shows a man named Mohammed posing with a rifle and pistol in front of a banner that reads “God willing, the world will be under your rule”.
The man in the video is wearing a mask, but his facial expressions are recognisable.
In the video, Mohammed is seen saying that he wants to see the world under the control of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, also known as ISIS) and that he is “not going to die until it is.”
As he makes his way through a small group of soldiers, he says, “I’m just here to say, if you want to kill people, do it, you will be killed.”
The man says he wants “no more wars,” and the next line is a call to action for the people of the UK.
The video ends with a message for the UK’s government: “We will protect you from your enemies and from your oppression.”””
The world will know that the UK stands for justice, peace, freedom and justice for all.”
The video ends with a message for the UK’s government: “We will protect you from your enemies and from your oppression.”
“I am not a terrorist,” Mohammed said, as the masked man walked away.
“I just want to live in peace, and I want people to be able to live like me.”
The UK government has since confirmed that Mohammed was born in the UK, but was given the name Mohammed Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
The footage was taken on November 1, 2015, the day that Britain voted to leave the European Union.
British authorities have launched an investigation into Mohammed’s comments, but it’s not clear whether his identity was known.
The man behind the video said he was inspired by an earlier video in which he posed with a Kalashnikov rifle and spoke about the “new age” religion of Islam.
“The world is moving towards the end of the age of darkness and the dawn of the new age,” Mohammed says in the previous video.
“What is it that I am talking about?
What is it you are talking about?”
In a statement released by the UK Foreign Office on Monday, the Foreign Office said it was “shocked” by the video and called for more “relevant” videos like it to be made available.
