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.
