Death to bamaricans and russians

Imperialists n Zionists USA n Israhell are worried because their dogs they created (ISIS) are getting it rough from the mighty Russia. Go Russia go!

Hassan if you are a true Muslim,be honest and speak truth. your hate of Israel and USA is misplaced. why don’t you call out ISIS and their atrocities,instead of side stepping. ISIS claim to represent Allah,do you agree with them?. China has banned Islam,Angola demolished all mosques,etc. why don’t you call them out

Islam is totally different from what atrocities ISIS are committing. Even if you wear a kanzu n put on beards n speak Arabic but you have no peace n good relationship with your fellow creatures, you are not a Muslim. ISIS is a product of CIA n Mossad agents funded n trained by Zionists in Arab land. They kill Muslims, Christians but not Zionists. Ask yourself that question
