ISIS mocks Michelle Obama on Twitter, boasts of Iraq victory

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), an Al-Qaeda-inspired Sunni militant group, is mocking Michelle Obama and so-called hashtag diplomacy on social media. The jihadists’ Tweets are also bragging about the capture of Iraqi military vehicles.

On June 10, less than a thousand of ISIS militants in soft-shelled pickup trucks occupied the northern Iraqi city of Mosul with a population of 1.8 million people. The city fell with no apparent resistance as scores of Iraqi troops fled dropping their uniforms and leaving precious US-made hardware behind. The militants celebrated getting US-made Humvees and tanks – some of which have since headed to Syria to be used against the government forces – and even allegedly captured at least one Black Hawk helicopter.

The US military equipment captured by ISIS is worth millions of dollars, the New York Post reported.

“We’re aware of reports of some equipment—namely Humvees—and the pictures that have been posted online,” Pentagon spokesman Cmdr. Bill Speaks said in an email to Fox News. “We are certainly concerned about these reports and are consulting with the Iraqi government to obtain solid confirmation on what assets may have fallen into ISIL’s hands.”

The photoshopped image of Michelle Obama with the #bringbackourhumvee hashtag is a take-off of her #bringbackourgirls Tweet aimed at the kidnapping of 276 Nigerian schoolgirls by militant group Boko Haram in that country.

It’s not the first time the Obama tweet has been hijacked. In May, a viral anti-drone meme campaign took off with photoshopped pictures of the US first lady holding signs such as “My husband has killed more young girls than Boko Haram ever could” and “#Stop drone murder.”

Americans are hitting back against ISIS on Twitter, however.

They won't sell them to citizens in the US but they will give them to rebels in Syria so they can be used against us by ISIS.

The French say the ISIS leader is a Mossad Israel agent.

&quo t;Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, so-called ”Caliph,” the head of ISIL (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant is, according to sources reputed to originate from Edward Snowden, an actor named Elliot Shimon, a Mossad trained operative."
