'Pagan' Website Revealed as Front for 'Islamic State'
AP: Washington, DC
Even in a year of fake news, it came as something of a surprise
The FBI revealed today that the popular PaganSquare blogsite is actually a front for the so-called 'Islamic State' (IS).
'For propaganda purposes, it was a brilliant stroke,' said an FBI source, who spoke under condition of anonymity.
'What better way to fuel global jihad than to convince would-be jihadis that the West is undergoing a resurgence in paganism?'
According to the Qur'an, Jews and Christians are protected religious minorities, but pagans must choose between conversion to Islam or death.
Documents found at IS headquarters in a recently-retaken section of Mosul in Iraq definitively confirmed the connection.
'But we've had our eye on them [PaganSquare] for quite some time,' the FBI source continued. 'What initially tipped us off was the specific policy of non-discrimination against Islam.'
Lâ allah wa-lâ rasûl: '[There is] neither “God” nor prophet.'
It is unclear whether this was intended as a statement of faith, or as further provocation.
