ISIS are said to be masters of propaganda, able to whip up amazing videos that lure in everyone from English fighters to googly eyed, lovestruck teens. If that is the case, it certainly is NOT seen in a new recruitment video that shows Daesh fighters trying to emulate martial arts moves (Taekwondo and
If that is the case, it certainly is NOT seen in a new recruitment video that shows Daesh fighters trying (failing) to emulate martial arts moves (Taekwondo and Hoshinsol, for those who study) and Navy Seal training.
Even more laughable is that, in an effort to copy Western styled drama scenes or horror/action movie moods, the laughable terror group has inserted the sound of children singing “In the name of Allah,” among other things.
While the singing is displaced enough, the fight scenes make North Korean news and martial arts films look astounding by comparison.
The training videos feature what are clearly very basic, mostly Korean based, martial arts moves. There are shown ISIS members hiding in the mud and leaping upon people who would have seen them in real life well before they emerged.
Also, they are seen creeping up on people on noisy, wooden docks that sway, and yet their foe who is armed with a machine gun does not even notice them approaching…in broad daylight!
“When I’m ready for lunch, don’t forget to say thanks,” a child sings as a masked man climbs out from the mush and runs towards a boat that would also sway and lean, yet the enemy is again defeated by our the ISIS warrior.
The next instance when someone runs away with Daesh because they were wooed by their production and video recruiting prowess, we may want to inquire as to what they were smoking before joining.
All jokes aside, ISIS is a walking malice to those who suffer their terror. Thankfully, after this video, they should see recruitment number plummet.
