Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi released a video the day after Christmas calling for Muslims to join his terrorist group and Muslims have responded.
Just not the way he had hoped.
Followers of Islam have taken to social media to respond to the message in hilarious ways including one person who said he couldn’t join because he didn’t want to die before the next “Star Wars” movie was released in 2017.
Sorry mate, I don’t want to risk dying before the next Star Wars comes out. https://t.co/vvnbXmsMfK

Other responses were just as comical.
@iyad_elbaghdadi in this special occasion, is there any changes in virgin numbers? 72 is so old school.
