JNS.org – Sheikh Abdulaziz Al-Asheikh, the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, claimed the Islamic State is actually a part of the Israeli army, referring to a recent threat made against Israel by the Islamic State.

“This threat against Israel is simply a lie. Actually, Daesh (IS) is part of the Israeli soldiers,” the Grand Mufti told the Saudi Gazette.

Last weekend, the Islamic State released a taped message from its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, where he threatened to turn Israel into a “graveyard.”
