#ISISmovies Twitter Hashtag Mocking ISIS Trending

The latest trending Twitter hashtag is #ISISmovies mocking the jihadists the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, although they now want to be known simply as Islamic State, or IS.  But ISIS has a much better ring to it.

Anyway, people (including many who are obviously Muslim) are having a blast coming up with fitting movie titles like:

Asma ‏@LibyanBentBladi Aug 16
All the Emir's Men #ISISmovies

I kind of hate to do this, but I got a good one- "Four Beheadings and a Funeral."

Al Arabiya has listed some as well.

Now this is what's bizarre. Remember those two ISIS dudes I posted about a few days ago. Abdullah aka @Mujahid4Life and Omar al-Shishani @ShishaniOmar, here are a few of their contributions:

Abdullah ‏@mujahid4life Aug 16
"The hitchhiker's guide to Abu Mariya al-Galaxy" #ISISmovies

Omar Shishani ‏@ShishaniOmar Aug 18
The minority Slave girl and me.


And Shishani's Chechen buddy:

Omar the Chechen @Omar_Chechen · Aug 16
Close Encounters of the Kurd Kind
I'm not totally convinced they are who they are, but they're still punks, and pretty darn stupid if they don't realize they are the ones who are being mocked.

My contribution:

Raiders of the Last Shirk (Shirk is the sin of idolatry and polytheism, which is forbidden in Islam)
Return of the Jihadi

There are a slew of Twitter postings, just search #ISISmovies
