#4 Jpal, try to picture this. I was told this story by an officer present there.

While crossing from the Nepal border, a bunch of burqa-ed women were caught by border police. They had to stand straight while the woman guards patted them down. One guard kept coming up against something springy jutting out from the front of a particularly shifty burqa. She tried to pat it a few times, and it only grew more pronounced.

The game was up.

#7 I'd like to direct your attention, ladies and gents to this thread where we talked about the three factions vying for control of ISIS. The Hazimi faction led by Abu Muath Hazimi are called Hazimites or Hasimis. They are Qarayshis and claim direct lineage. If the new caliph has 'Hashimi' in his name, it's a good bet they've won control.

Also, see here to dig further. Most of it is useless politics if the daesh, but insightful nonetheless. I'd go through a proxy or VPN if I were you though.

#8 Good luck, Abu. From one Abu to another, you're gonna need it!

Fell in with an underpants genie:
"You'll surely be Caliph
(or rule Fine Gael!) if
You don al-Baghdadi's bikini."

#11 I'd like to direct your attention, ladies and gents to this thread where we talked about the three factions vying for control of ISIS.

I went back and made that thread a Classic, so it can be seen here, or any time anyone clicks on The Classics link in the yellow sidebar.
