The Daily Beast: The Walking Dead ISIS ‘Minister of War’

TBILISI - The daily Beast has published an article about the red-bearded Abu Omar al-Shishani, whose death confirmed by the Pentagon last week, but his legend still grows.

“Ironically, every time Shishani doesn’t die after these premature announcements, his stature increases. Indeed, his extraordinary habit of surviving helps to recruit, radicalize, and inspire young fundamentalists who then go to their deaths,” Will Cathcart, an author of the story commented.

The article emphasized that Shishani’s face has become synonymous with ISIS upper management.

“His features are recognizably Caucasian in every sense, and he’s become iconic: the face of an organization that is actively recruiting young European fighters,” the article reads.
