‘We have better things to do than joining ISIS’: Muslims troll ISIS on Twitter

Muslims from around the world trolled the audio recording of the leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, released last week, a call for Muslims worldwide to join ISIS for an international caliphate.

Prominent human rights activist, Iyad El-Baghdadi was caught up in the Twitter frenzy himself after he was mistaken as an ISIS follower and translated portions of the speech.

“Perhaps the funniest/weirdest response was when ISIS supporters (I mean real ISIS supporters) were actually offended that I was mistaken for their great leader,” said El-Baghdadi.

The 24-minute audio statement on December 26 including one quote from al-Baghdadi reading: “ISIS leaders: We urgently call upon every Muslim to join the fight, especially those in the land of the two shrines (Saudi Arabia), rise.”
