ISIS Burns Cannabis, Snorts Coke?

We recently noted that the ultra-puritanical ISIS has been burning the cannabis fields in the territory it controls in northern Syria—and that the cannabis farmers of Lebanon are arming to resist any ISIS incursion across the border. Now comes the hilariously predictable news that ISIS fighters might be snorting cocaine to keep their spirits up!

On Jan. 6, the Kurdish Daily News posted a video from the town of Kobani in northern Syria, where local Kurdish fighters have been resisting an ISIS siege since September. The footage shows Kurdish fighters holding a stash of white powder in a big plastic bag just taken from the house of an ISIS commander. Kurdish fighters interviewed on camera said the house had been seized from an ISIS “emir” (as they call their commanders) who had earlier taken it over from local residents. The”emir” was killed in the house-to-house fighting now raging in Kobani, and his home searched. In addition to lots of weapons, the coke stash was found. The Kurdish fighters said they believed the emir was distributing coke to his own followers to fuel their fighting spirit.

The ISIS jihadis, fortunately, have reason to be snorting blow to stimulate flagging morale. In September, everyone thought Kobani was about to fall to the extremists. Instead, the Kurdish forces, backed up by US air-strikes, have been slowly but surely beating them back. Anyway, the coke revelation should be disseminated on the Internet far and wide. As we said back in 2011, when cannabis plants were found growing at Osama bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan after US SEALs raided it… hopefully, this will expose the jihadi fundamentalists as a bunch of hypocrites—like most puritans.
