[Ed. – More ways American football just doesn’t measure up to international futbol.]
The World Cup kicked off this week and to show their “support,” ISIS savagely tweeted a photo of a Sunni police chief’s severed head and joked about it being a soccer ball.
“This is our ball,” the Iraqi jihadists said in the tweet showing the picture. “It is made of skin #WorldCup #WorldCup2014.”
Via the New York Post (click if you want to see the blurred-out image):
Increasingly violent rebel forces have been documenting their savagery with a steady stream of graphic photographs and videos as they rampage toward Baghdad.
One clip shows them barging into the police chief’s home in the dead of night and blindfolding him before cutting off his head with a large knife. …
Other videos show the rebels carrying out drive-by shootings of random pedestrians and uniformed personnel along bloodstained streets.
Leaning out of cars, the rebels are shown running other cars off the road and riddling drivers with bullets.
