From Reuters (thanks to Peter McLoughlin), a bitter tale of jihadist disappointment:
Ahmed Abdel Razzaq went to Iraq to fight the Americans and die a martyr. He ended up in a US prison camp after the Iraqis he went to defend captured and sold him for $100.
“I went to be a martyr in God’s name,” said Razzap, from poor north Lebanon, where Sunni Muslim militancy runs deep.
“I went to jihad (holy war) for the Iraqis but they are all traitors; the people, the army, the Kurds. They say Saddam was bad, but the Iraqis deserve 10 Saddams.”
Motivated by religious zeal or Arab nationalism, busloads of Arab volunteers crossed Syria to go to Iraq before and during the war.
Doesn’t sound like there was a whole lot of Arab nationalism coming from Ahmed Abdel Razzaq.
