Muslims mocked the Islamic State group on social media after ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi issued a call for Muslims worldwide to join his drive for an international caliphate.
“ISIS leaders: We urgently call upon every Muslim to join the fight, especially those in the land of the two shrines, rise,” Baghdadi said in an Arabic audio message released Sunday night.
The message ended up on Twitter after being translated to English by human rights activist Iyad El-Baghdadi, who posted translated excerpts on his Twitter account.
Twitter users — including quite a few Muslims — mocked the request, filling Twitter with hilarious insults, with one user stating, “Sorry, but I can’t trust a group that uses a deflating football and Arabic comic sans as their logo.”
From there it went downhill for ISIS.
