In a Lebanese TV show, Sunni cleric Sheikh Bilal Duqmaq said that he "agreed with [ISIS] on some theories and religious matters." The Al-Jadeed TV show took the form of an interrogation, in which the host brandished a toy pistol, aimed it at his guest, and questioned him: "Are you a killer? Yes or no?" When asked whether he considered ISIS a terror organization or an Islamic one, Duqmaq said that there is "commendable terrorism and reprehensible terrorism." After the TV host handed him the toy pistol, he said: "When dealing with enemies of Allah, I prefer to shoot them in the head." The show aired on February 1.
