Australian Muslim leaders targeted in new ISIS propaganda

THREE prominent Australian Islamic scholars have been named as "apostates" in a new video by Islamic State.

Youth leader Sheik Shady Alsuleiman, NSW Police Force chaplain Sheik Ahmed Abdo and the Grand Mufti of Australia, Ibrahim Abu Mohamed, are mentioned in a new propaganda video by the radical group, Fairfax reports.

The 25-minute video, titled Fight the leaders of disbelief, calls on followers to kill the three men, and mentions other leaders from across the Islamic world, saying they're "collaborators, informers and apostates".

The three Australians are attacked for calling on Muslims to follow the laws of the countries in which they live and discouraging violence in the name of Islam, according to Fairfax.

"Those traitors are sitting in airconditioned rooms attacking the mujahideen and supporting the polytheists," the video says. "Put an end to their evilness and kill them."

The video, spoken in Arabic, was reportedly removed by YouTube
