Sunni insurgents defeated the American military with the help of giant spiders sent by Allah

In an August 2004 interview with Syria TV, Sheik Mahdi Al-Sumide’i discussed the First Battle of Falluja fought in April-May that year. Sheik Al-Sumeide’i claimed that the Sunni insurgents defeated the American military with the help of giant spiders sent by Allah. Sheik Al-Sumide’i was later appointed Sunni Mufti of Iraq – although many Sunnis do nor recognize this appointment. In 2009, Nidhal Qablan, who conducted the interview, was appointed Syrian ambassador to Turkey.
