    • Forget America, forget the west, its ignorant fools like YOU that perpetuate the violence against your own kind…always have done, always will do !!

    • Ali – you have the wrong name for your chums in ISIS – when they come to power, one of the first idiots to be beheaded is gonna be you…

    • I believe you follow Abdul-Wahab. A big conspiracy against Islam and Muslim. Abdul Wahab was Satan and planted by western countries to distort the real teaching of Islam which are based on humanity and peace. The peace and love for every one is the teaching of Islam , no matter who is , no matter of what isreligion, language or colour.

    • And according to “shiates” it’s Daesh/the Sunnis who are the pet dogs of America and Europe. Could you diaperheads make up your collective minds please?
