BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:55 A.M.) – The cousin of the Islamic State’s (ISIS) leader, Ibrahim Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, was reportedly arrested by the Iraqi Federal Police on Thursday after they took full control of another district in western Mosul.

Based on the footage released by Iraqi activists, the cousin of the Islamic State leader was arrested inside the recently liberated Jawsaq District of western Mosul.

The Iraqi Armed Forces launched the last phase of their Mosul offensive earlier this month, targeting the last half of the city that is under the control of the terrorist group.

On Thursday, the Popular Mobilization Units (Hashd Al-Sha’abi) liberated the strategic Bashiqa area, resulting in the complete encirclement of the Islamic State’s stronghold of Tal ‘Afar.

Brother Ibrahim is a disgrace to the IS. He must be a gay anti alcoholic or a man too old for fun. He did not take up the caliph on his promise of 72 eager virgins and free booze. Stone the apostate! Smile.

Can’t be a gay, it’s forbidden to them, they’re in zoophilia and necrophilia, dixit the Haddith, thus as the one they have idolatry for used to shag Aisha when crossdressed with her clothes, disguising themselves as women is ‘halal’. 😀
Funny point : Moses would have stoned to death the main character of the Haddith to any of these 3 practises… 😀
Thus, this compilation of his acts with every time at leas 4 witnesses was issued about 100-150 years after the guy’s death… But it’s supposed to be genuine…

My post was a joke on him. Wasn’t that clear? Sorry!

BTW. Can be gay even though it is forbidden. Else there would be no punishment for that. Tongue out.

p.s. According to some scholars from the Saarbrücken school the Noble Quran contains parts that identify it as a partly incomplete translation from Syro Aramaic. Means it is pretty old. No such have as to my knowledge been found in the Hadith. IMHO there must be doubts for this reason.

This fellow was arrested weeks ago. AMN reported on it on March fifth.

What happened in the interim? Why is this being reported twice?

Maybe the Iraq released it again? Or a mistake?
