ISIS leader al-Baghdadi describes Taliban leader as “demented” and “ignorant Prince of war
On Thursday2015/1/29, ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi attacked Taliban leader Mullah Omar, describing him as “demented” and “an ignorant prince of war.”
An Afghan website quoted Baghdadi, in a statement shared by websites belonging to the ISIS organization, as saying, “Mullah Omar does not deserve any spiritual or political credibility,” noting that, “The organization has achieved in two years what Taliban could not achieve in its campaign in ten years.”
The statements come amid growing concern about the impact of the ISIS organization in Afghanistan and Pakistan after the emergence of a videotape during last week in which leaders claimed that they are from Afghanistan and Pakistan and pledged support for ISIS.
