ERBIL, Kurdistan Region- Hollywood actress and director Angelina Jolie used a social media post to denounce the so-called Islamic State organization's radical interpretation of Islam
Jolie posted the following anecdote on her official Twitter account recently :
"Yesterday an ISIS member stopped the car of a Christian couple.
ISIS member: 'Are you Muslim?'
Christian man: 'Yes, I'm Muslim.'
ISIS member: 'If you are a Muslim, then recite a verse of Quran.'
Christian man recited a verse from the Bible.
ISIS member: 'Ok allah go.'
Later his wife tells him: 'I cannot believe the risk you just took.'
'Why did u tell him that we are Muslims?
If he knew you were lying he would have killed both of us.'
'Do not worry! If they knew the Quran, they would not kill people,' answered the Husband."
After the short anecdote, Jolie posted, "ISIS is not Islam, terrorism has no religion."
