Terror group's chief repents

Reports reaching us say he made this known in a letter to all media arms of the terror group.

 

Should the world rejoice over the latest news making the rounds?

Apparently in a new public relations move, ISIS chief, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has reportedly banned the showing of beheading videos, adding that it is bad for the group’s image.

How ironic.

According to Al-Baghdadi, “the decision was based on not offending other Muslims, who might think the videos will frighten their children.”

Speaking on the development, a notable Syrian commentator, Ferid Hisso said “Instead of banning the release of such videos, Baghdadi should have banned the crimes behind the scenes.”

Meanwhile, news from The Mirror says the ISIS militants are drugged, and then asked to go and behead people.
