5. Yep: ‘Europe Is Destroyed’: ISIS Celebrates Brexit Vote

In a shocking move that sent global markets tumbling and prompted the resignation of British Prime Minister David Cameron, Britain voted to leave the European Union Thursday. As the Brexit upheaval starts to reverberate across the globe, supporters of the Islamic State are celebrating online in forums and social media, proclaiming, “Europe is destroyed!”

“The rise of the Islamic State brought about the sinking of Britain and the collapse of the European Union,” said one supporter. Others claimed that ISIS “will profit” from the British exit, since a weaker UK won’t be able to continue supporting the Arab countries fighting the terror group. There was also taunting directed at “Rambo” David Cameron, with users sharing quotes about Cameron’s promise “to destroy the Caliphate,” and mocking him for ending up out of the EU (and a job).

At least three threads discussing the referendum were created on al-Minbar, one of the main online forums used by ISIS supporters. In one of the threads, titled “God is great, Europe is destroyed,” dozens of supporters commented, sharing updates on the results and the “collapse of the stock markets in Europe.”


Mind you, this will only perpetuate more racism, more xenophobia, and more ultra nationalist insanity. Britian is going down the wrong path.
