Rick N. tossed this image over the electronic transom courtesy wsj.com. It’s unusual in the sense that most ISIS images feature kneeling prisoners in orange jumpsuits shortly before they’re decapitated. Or immolated. Here though, we see ISISians in repose, rather than mugging for the camera. But besides that, what’s wrong with this photo?

75 Responses to What’s Wrong With This Picture: ISIS Family Portrait Edition

    • These dumbasses must shoot each other a lot. One is about to lose an arm before the guy in the middle gets it not once but twice. I’m thinking the one in the middle is the other two guy’s bitch but that’s pretty normal behavior for these macho guys.

    • They tried to sell him on 72 virgins, milk and honey, but after failed attempts they told the kid to hop on the camel and he’d get a corn dog for the trip.

    • Its not uncommon in parts of the middle east to find blonde, blue eyed children, and even a few gingers – particularly among Kurds.

      • The adults are Baloch (off shoot/related to Kurds). The hats worn by the unveiled are a common, Pashtun-style called pakol. Kunar Province is right on the border between Afghanistan and Palistan. The blond boy might be the son of any number of European Muslims that have voluntarily joined Daesh. They want new joins that already have dual-citizenship or EU Passports for ease of access purposes/future travel.

        • Sorry–my mistake. Not Kurdish. Baloch have a Persian/Iranian background and may have emigrated from the central Caspian region. The peshmerga are very, very different.

        • He might very well be a Chechen, or at least a son of a Chechen mother. Blond guys aren’t super common among them, but do happen (and often combine with blue eyes & tall height for your stereotypical “Arian Ubermensch” look).

    • Probably Bergdahl fathered him while conspiring with the enemy prior to BHO’s arranged “release…” Which reminds me, is it January 2017 yet…?

  1. The fact that there’s no drone missile strike in bound at the moment the photo was took is the biggest problem I have with that photo.

    • Ya gotta give it a little time! I just got off the hook with the Pentagon. It’s on it’s way, should hit just about the same time this post gets through the wait period!

  2. Obviously no tacticool gear. No Surefire or Trijicon or Crimson Trace. Plus they should be using Magpul mags right?

  3. I know

    The woman must be really ugly because she has her face covered up. Maybe she’s a blonde too? That would explain the dumbass mistake she made by marrying the Haji

      • Yeah. No question that’s a dude. And he’s the only one looking at the camera AND he looks really F’n pissed. Creepy.

      • It’s a woman. Her name is Caitlyn. The picture is from the set of a reality show: Dysfunctional Families of the World. The guy on the left has a big butt.

      • Hajji, or Hadji, as it a Romanization of the Arabic abjad/script, so it can be written a few different ways and they are all correct and all wrong too.
        It is an honorific term, referring to someone who has completed pilgrimage to Mecca, called the Hajj (Hadj). Many people attempt to insult or degrade all Muslims by calling them Haji’s, when in fact, they are doing the exact opposite. It would be like someone trying to denigrate me as a Christian by constantly calling me someone who had visited the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem. As I have done that, it’s not insulting at all. If I had not done that yet, I would take it as a compliment that you had assumed I had.
        I have been to Saudi Arabia and set foot in Mecca, but not been allowed to visit the Kaaba as I am not a Muslim. Oddly enough I was allowed inside the Dome of the Rock. I’ve always wondered then if devout Muslims should refer to me as Hajji Taylor?

  4. Blonde kid, 2 muzzles pointed the the guy in the center. Guy in center has face hidden like a woman in their culture. Same guy is the only one looking at the camera. Guy on our right looks spaced out. Other than that , the fact that they are all still alive is a problem. Did I miss anything ? Not sure if the flag is upside down or not as I do not read Arabic.

  5. Bacon. There’s no f’in bacon. That’s why they want to ahloha snackbar everyone. Because they have bacon, and they don’t.

    You’ll have to pry my bacon from my cold dead hands.

  6. The blond kid needs to get with the program. He’s not wearing a “dumb ass” hat, like the rest of them!
    And, the three guys in front were late picking up my daughter for prayer meeting last night!

  7. Blonde kid(I looked quite similar as a lad). Not at all different than the muslims in kosovo/serbia or the caucasus…

  8. Tell me guys! I gotta know!
    Do they have a chicken walk across some spilled white paint to make that dumb ass looking writing on the flag?

  9. The woman has “Man Hands” man!

    Looks like a dude in a burka. Oh, and the blond kid in the background.

  10. Gul Dali has a watch on his right arm. Either he is left handed or the picture is reversed. Either way, muslims tend to wipe their butts with their left hand and a left handed mussie would not be looked upon favorably.

  11. Well, the blond kid is just about the right age to belong to some blond-haired, blue-eyed American circa the first few years of OIF?

    Not unlike the totally Russian-looking 30ish-year old Afghan dude in the Kandak that my unit advised.

  12. Ummm….its in AFGHANISTAN…until very recently, daesh has been generally limited to the levant and the tribal cluster-f**k known as Iraq. But apparently, since they are not a global (or even regional) threat, according to the current US regime, they have been permitted to expand and work with our old friends the taliban…thanks Barry.

  13. Only the men have the guns. Does that (presumed) woman actually want to be there? That is irrelevant- she’s going to do whatever the men say or she risks being shot.

    The corollary being that those with a monopoly on force control the disarmed, and the disarmed can quickly become the disenfranchised.

  14. Give each them a turkey leg and a tankard and they would fit right in at the local Renaissance Fair.
