What do you do when your enemies are killing each other? Grab the popcorn and enjoy the show, of course!

Maulvi Daud – a former Taliban governor for Kabul – was gunned down close to the Shamshato refugee camp in Pakistan, late Thursday.

Both the terror leader and his driver were hit with bullets as they sat in their car.

Taliban officials were conflicting in their reports of the incident with some saying it was “security forces” and others stating ISIS killed Daud.

Later ISIS terrorists claimed responsibility for the “assassination of the Taliban leader”.

Obviously, the Taliban and ISIS have a lot in common. They’re both radical Islamic organizations that want to impose Sharia law on everybody else. They’re also more than willing to use (terrible) violence to reach their aims. Both groups are famous for oppressing religious minorities and even killing them outright, and for their horrendous treatment of women, whom they consider to be slightly less honorable than dogs.

They want to kill the infidel — and anyone else who dares disagree with their extremist views.

However, there’s one major point on which they disagree with each other: the Taliban’s leader, Hibatullah Akhundzada, considers himself to be the rightful leader of his envisioned radical Islamic caliphate. ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, however, begs to differ. He thinks he is the rightful “caliph,” not some Afghan who calls on his followers to “plant trees” (I kid you not) in addition to killing as many “heathens”  as possible.

And so an assassin of one terror group has taken out one of the senior leaders of a very similar yet different terror group. You’d laugh if it wasn’t so…

No scratch that, let’s just laugh.

As Jesus explained some 2,000 years ago: a house divided against itself cannot stand. Let these radicals destroy each other. At the last moment, the West can move in to destroy whichever group survives the onslaught.
