Hypocrisy Jihadist Style

You know, it’s hard to be a Murdering Islamic Radical Militant Fanatic. Enforcing Sharia Law through terror, intimidation and mass murder must take its toll on their nerves. Maybe that will explain why we see a little tendency to be self-indulgent. I’m sure Allah will understand.

For example:

The leader of the devout Sunni jihadist group Islamic State, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, making a rare, solemn appearance in July, wore a flashy silver wristwatch that various video analysts described as either a Rolex or an Omega Seafarer or a feature-laden Saudi Arabian-made timepiece that sells for only about $560.

A week earlier, a Syrian anti-government rebel leader was shown in a video exhorting his troops from notes he had made in his "Hello Kitty" notebook.

And a week after that, a shopkeeper in North Waziristan, lamenting the loss of business when local Taliban fighters abruptly left the area, told a BBC reporter that the jihadists obsessively bought Dove soap, Head & Shoulders shampoo, white underwear ("briefs or Y-fronts"), and "Secret Love" and "Blue Lady" perfumes.

It begs the question: Just who are they trying to look and smell so good for? And Why?
