Al-Qaida-inspired terrorists sent out a call to attack the Israeli Olympic team at the upcoming Rio de Janeiro Olympics, The Foreign Desk reported Thursday.

“Your chance to take part in the global Jihad is here! Your chance to be a martyr is here!” the terrorists urged, pointing out the easy process to obtain a visa to Brazil, as well as the wide-spread gun trafficking in Rio's “crime-ridden slums.”

The jihadists reportedly called for the US, French, and British delegations to be attacked as well.

“One small knife attack against Americans/Israelis in these places will have bigger media effect than any other attacks anywhere else in sha Allah,” they wrote, according to The Foreign Desk.

The social media post continues: "From amongst the worst enemies, the most famous enemies for general Muslims is to attack Israelis. As general Muslims all agree to it and it causes more popularity for the Mujahideen amongst the Muslims.”

The jihadists also exhorted their readers to kidnap Israelis, so they can be used as bargaining chips.
