A prominent ISIS ideologue has condemned Al-Qaeda as the “Jews of Jihad”

An influential ideologue within the Islamic State militant group (ISIS) released an article on Monday, trending online among jihadi circles, in which he calls Al-Qaeda the “Jews of Jihad.”

Experts believe the move is the first such instance of anti-Semitic terminology being leveled between the jihadi rivals.

Abu Maysarah ash-Shami released the article, entitled “The Jews of Jihad: Zawahiri’s Al-Qaeda” in reference to Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri, two weeks ago. However, it was propagated in English via the militant group’s English language channel on private messaging app Telegram on Monday.

    Zawahiri should take this as a complement. ISIS is admitting that he has a brain.

    Wow, for such a minute percentage of the world’s population, those Jews really do get around.

  • Tom Forsythe

    I am sure that rubber duckies are haram.

  • So that is their ace-in-the-hole of insults? Calling others “Jews”?

    How the hell did these brain-trusts get the better of the West? How?
