This Man Used to be a University Professor, Now ISIS Fears Him as the ‘Angel of Death’

Abu Azrael used to be a university lecturer and professor in Iraq. But since the rise of ISIS, this one-time academic has become feared by terrorists as “the Angel of Death” for the many terrorists he’s killed.

Azrael has taken the unusual step of allowing his face to become the face of resistance, too, by appearing on videos and magazine covers. This is unusually brave of him as it makes him a prime target among the terrorists.

Azrael has become the face of the Imam Ali brigade, a group of Shi-a fighters that some believe are backed by Iran. According to the Daily Mail, the group is fighting alongside the Iraqi army, showing how the cross-cutting cleavages among national interests in the Middle East are complex indeed.

The symbolism of a “people’s champion” in Iraq and beyond could prompt others to show the bravery and courage to take down the “psychopathic” jihadists in the Islamic State.

The Kurds thus far are the most effective fighters against ISIS on a consistent basis, although in the brief skirmishes that the terrorists had with the U.S. military, they were routed.

May he kill millions of radical Muslims.
