A spokesman for the so-called “Islamic State” has launched a scathing attack on the “constant petty, snide and frankly passive-aggressive comments” from western journalists.
“It got old pretty damn quickly”, snarled Muhammad al-Siddiq, supposed director of communications for the group.
“I mean, you never hear Jon Snow referring to the so-called Saudi regime or the pretendy Iranian president. I’ve never seen air quotes around the Taliban’s name. We might have to start addressing our videos to the self-proclaimed ‘journalists’ at Channel 4 News, in the nominal United ‘Kingdom’.”
The statement concluded prematurely as Mr al-Siddiq stormed off, ranting incoherently.
