...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi.

They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems....
Lions of Islam on Hawija district in Kirkuk,
... a thick stew of Arabs, Turkmen, Kurds, and probably Antarcticans, all of them mutually hostile most of the time...

Speaking to Ayn Al Iraq news website, the source said that, "a group of IS Lions of Islam broke into a house owned by a member of the Tribal Mobilization Forces at a village in Hawija district in southwestern Kirkuk early Tuesday, leaving two tribal fighters dead and a woman injured."

The source said that the injured woman was moved to a nearby hospital for treatment.
