Where did William Hasmou Clinic, otherwise known as Abu Abdullah al-Britani, learn about Islam? Was he “radicalized on the Internet”? If so, why did he so readily accept what he read there and discard the peaceful, tolerant Islamic teachings that British authorities assume that he learned at his local mosque? And if he didn’t learn peaceful, tolerant teachings at his local mosque, is that mosque being monitored? Or would that be “Islamophobic” in Insane Britannia?
“UK jihadist who urged fellow Britons ‘to get yourself over here’ believed to have been killed fighting in Syria for ISIS,” by Tom Wyke, Daily Mail, November 4, 2014:
A British jihadist, known as Abu Abdullah al-Britani, who previously called on fellow UK Muslims to travel to Syria to fight for ISIS, has reportedly been killed.
Al-Britani, who is believed to have been called William Hasmou Clinic, was reportedly killed in Hawigat Saqr, near the eastern Syrian city of Deir ez-Sor, in a Syrian government airstrike.
He is believed to be the eighth Briton killed in the conflict between Islamic State militants and forces resisting the group’s advances in Iraq and Syria.
Al-Britani was very active on social media and wanted fellow Britons to join him in jihad. He said: ‘I’m sure we have more lions roaming around the UK. Get yourself over here.’
In July, he appeared in a video claiming to have witnessed a ‘miracle’ during a battle in which he saw angels. He claimed that during a 22-hour fight, ‘Allah sent his angels upon angels upon angels to aid the believers in battle.’
“Remember when you said to the believers, ‘Is it not sufficient for you that your Lord should reinforce you with three thousand angels sent down? Yes, if you remain patient and conscious of Allah and the enemy come upon you in rage, your Lord will reinforce you with five thousand angels having marks.'” (Qur’an 3:124-125)
In one of his Tweets, al-Britani said: ‘From the streets of London to the dirt roads of Jihad.’
It appears he might have got married in Syria and had a daughter, whom he referred to as his ‘little princess mujahidah’.
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office is currently investigating reports of al-Britani’s death.
A spokeswoman said: ‘We are aware of reports of the death of a British national in Syria.
‘The UK has advised for some time against all travel to Syria, where all UK consular services are suspended. As we do not have any representation in Syria, it is extremely difficult to get any confirmation of deaths or injuries and our options for supporting British nationals there are extremely limited.’ …
