But you knew this already since it's classic

Omar at Iraq the Model details this interrogation on Iraq TV of a terrorist:

Back to the 1st terrorist. When he was asked about his group he said that he was a member of the "Islamic Army" group. I will quote a short part of the conversation that took place between the officer and the criminal on TV.

Officer: were you doing these killings for Jihad?

Criminal: yes Sir.

Officer: for Jihad or for money?

Criminal: for both Sir.

Officer: how could Jihad be paid for!!

Criminal: (no answer)

Officer: you're Muslim?

Criminal: yes

Officer: on ID card, huh?

Criminal: yes

Officer: do you pray or go to the mosque?

Criminal: no

Officer: do you drink?

Criminal: yes Sir.

Officer: so you don't pray and you don't go to the mosque and you drink and you kill for money and after all this you call your evil doings Jihad?!!! And you call your group the "Islamic Army"!!

Criminal: (no answer again)

Officer: so, tell me about those 9 policemen. Where were they coming from and where were they heading?

Criminal: coming from 'Msayab and heading to Hilla

Officer: so they weren't coming from Tel Aviv? (from the officer's tone, obviously mocking the conspiracy theorists).

Criminal: no Sir, they were Iraqis.


There are further comments by Omar about how these TV shows are winning the hearts and minds of Iraqis by exposing just who and what are the jihadis.
