‘Busy Watching Some Porns’: Twitter Users Reject Islamic State Recruitment Call


While the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) terrorist group has developed a reputation for successfully recruiting using social media, this week, a call from “caliph” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi—demanding more Muslims join the jihadist group—was met with a chorus of mockery and jeers.

Iyad el-Baghdadi, an Arab Spring activist, translated Baghdadi’s remarks on Twitter. He received numerous replies attacking the ISIS leader and his terrorist group.

Baghdadi claimed his terrorist group is thriving in Iraq and Syria despite facing continuous U.S.-led airstrikes.

“Be confident that God will grant victory to those who worship him, and hear the good news that our state is doing well. The more intense the war against it, the purer it becomes and the tougher it gets,” he said.



The leader also claimed the terrorist group had not forgotten Palestine and threatened Israel.


Some Muslims replied that they had no interest in joining ISIS, being currently occupied with mundane chores.

Some of those responding joked that finding Muslims to give up their lives to join the Islamic State on Boxing Day or right after Christmas would be especially troublesome.


Quite a few Twitter accounts posed very important questions for Baghdadi.



Can he promise virgins in heaven?
