TLV Exclusive: The famed leader of the biggest drugs cartel in the world, Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera – aka ‘El Chapo’ – has sent a chilling warning ISIS: “My men will destroy you.”
The head of the enormous – and deadly – Sinaloa Cartel issued the threat via his son as he’s currently in hiding from Mexican authorities after escaping from jail earlier this year.
The message was sent via encrypted email to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi, but details were leaked to a Mexican blogger who has close ties with Sinaloa cartel members.
The Sinaloa Cartel, The Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC) and Los Zetas are the three main cartels moving drugs across Mexico and the rest of the world. Recently, all three had expanded their operations to the Middle East, where demand for party drugs like cocaine and MDMA has grown among oil rich princes and businessman.

But the rise of the Muslim fundamentalist organisation known as Islamic State has seen many shipments destroyed by ISIS fighters. It seems that drugs don’t form part of their notion of the idealized Muslim State.
Extracts leaked from the email read as follows:
“You [ISIS] are not soldiers. You are nothing but lowly p*ssies. Your god cannot save you from the true terror that my men will levy at you if you continue to impact my operation.”
“My men will destroy you. The world is not yours to dictate. I pity the next son of a wh*re that tries to interfere with the business of the Sinaloa Cartel. I will have their heart and tongue torn from them.”
El Chapo’s organization join a long list of criminal enterprises to declare hostility towards ISIL. We told you recently how the mafia had threatened ISIS. And even LA gangs the Bloods and Crips have united to fight ISIS.
Your move, ISIS…
