Welcome assistance from the man who converted Gadahn to Islam, and was later assaulted by him. From FoxNews, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:
GARDEN GROVE, Calif. — The director of a California mosque told FOX News on Friday he believes the man threatening the United States on a mysterious videotape is that of a young American he converted to Islam.
Haitham Bundjaki, the Orange County imam who converted Adam Yahiye Gadahn to Islam and whom Gadahn later assaulted, told FOX outside his mosque on Friday that it sounds like Gadahn on the tape.
The FBI believes the 25-year-old Southern Californian has possible ties to Usama bin Laden’s terror network Al Qaeda.
Question: do young men join terror groups for the glamor of it all? Was there any other life path that Adam Gadahn could have chosen that would have made him the top story on international news? Of course, most terrorists don’t ever play this role, but even the incessant beheading videotapes suggest that there may be a bright-lights-big-city aspect, and/or a sense of joining in a significant, important, and dangerous work, in what attracts recruits to terror groups.
