ISIS wages war: Hundreds of jihadis desert the terror group for rival factions after becoming disillusioned when their pay was cut

Hundreds of jihadis are leaving Islamic State for other extremist organisations after being forced to take a pay cut of almost £200 by chiefs, it was claimed last night.

ISIS militants were allegedly being paid £260 a month until the terror group faced financial shortages which forced their salaries down to £65 – and at least 200 gunmen have since quit.

The fighters from ISIS, which until recently was said to be the world’s wealthiest jihadist group, are now retreating from northern Iraq to earn more money from other terror organisations in Syria.

  • But Tom Mulcair and the NDP have a solution to the terrorist wage problem too. Form a Union! Maybe they can talk to Sid Ryan and get the ISIS fighters organized under the UNIFOR umbrella.

    But I thought there was “no god but allah”? Pretty sure that worshipping money is a form of idolatry, n’est pas?

      Yes, they’re so spiritual. You’re not from Quebec, though, are you?

      • moraywatson

        Spirituality requires the concept of a “soul”. And a soul infers “uniqueness of the individual”. There are no souls in totalitarian islam. There is no spirituality in that supremacist cult.

      In Christianity, yes. Islam, not so much. Any kind of success coming to Muslims is considered a gift of Allah and a victory for the ummah, eg, unearned oil money, successfully making an illegal landing on a Greek Christian island, any kind of fraud, theft or unfair practice against a non-Muslim. All good if they work.

    Suppose when you are on deadline in Iraq any bullshit story will do.

    Is that all it takes? Why don’t we divide them into skins and shirts and pay ’em to have at it?

    Massive bribes were a big part of the US invasion of Afghanistan right after 9/11. There are photos of pallets of bundles of $100 US bills being flown via transports. Wild times.

      The CIA was doing very good work until “State” and the Pentagon bureaucratic elites threw a fit over these “wild special ops people” providing victory on the cheap and ignoring “stakeholders”.

    More terrorist groups, more weapons for USA arms industry to sell, supplying all sides.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if Iraqis follow the lead of the Vietnamese and call their new Russian advisers “Americans without money.”

    Trying to find utopia can be disappointing.

    Finally, someone got the tight idea: hit ISIS right in the ATMs !

    Lets pray that they don’t find out how much our Welfare pays on top of the FREE stuff and housing perks.
