Where did this Muslim from the U.K., who “has been to university,” no less, get the idea that blood, slaughter and killing were part of his Islamic duty? Does anyone know? Does anyone care? Or would asking this question be “Islamophobic”? Does the British government think that asking it would not be conducive to community harmony, like letting Pamela Geller and me into the country?
“British jihadist fighting in Syria posts Twitter ‘torture’ footage with caption: ‘Can’t wait for feeling you get when U just killed some1,'” from the Daily Mail, February 11 (thanks to Pamela Geller):
British citizens fighting in Syria may have been involved in the beating and execution of fellow rebels, it has today been claimed.
It comes after a man from London has posted an apparent ‘torture’ video on Facebook, which appears to show the beating of prisoners.
The man – believed to be with a jihadist rebel group and originally from West London – has uploaded a video in which he claimed to have tortured a fighter with the Free Syrian Army – which is backed by the west.
Alongside images of the fighter tied to a car tyre and being hit with an iron bar, the ‘jihadist’ writes that he launched the attack after he ‘insulted his brothers’.
He said: ‘Some FSA are starting to feel they run things! This FSA scum never thought we wud jump out at them and pick them up after saying some abusive words to our brothers.
‘Two then got ahead of themselves and swore at Allah, at this point there was no stopping us LOL [laugh out loud] although we where told to jus leave them.’
The prisoner is heard protesting his innocence as he is apparently beaten across the legs with an metal bar, and is stamped on.
He shouts that he is not a ‘kuffar’, a non-believer, and that he is a ‘mujahid’ – a Muslim fighter – and begs them not to kill him.
Shiraz Maher, a senior fellow at the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation at King’s College London, confirmed to Sky News that the man who posted the video footage was from London.
It is also believed he has been to university.
In a separate picture posted on Twitter by another British citizen in Syria, three prisoners are seen blindfolded, alongside the words: ‘Got these criminals today. Insha’Allah [God willing] they will be killed tomorrow. Can’t wait for that feeling when u just killed some1’
The same user then posted a picture of a blood soaked hand along with the words: ‘My first time!’
Mr Maher said that after contacting the man over the internet, he denied killing prisoners.
He also added that the blood on his hands was from a slaughtered sheep.
Why is Shiraz Maher, who is supposed to be a Muslim who believes that jihad terror is a twisting and hijacking of his peaceful faith, covering for this guy?
