“Second Australian Islamic State jihadi killed in Syria,” The Australian, March 19, 2015:
A Melbourne university student has reportedly been killed in Syria fighting for Islamic State.
Unconfirmed pictures on social media claim 23-year-old Suban Rahman, known as Abu Jihad al Australia, lying dead with a rifle on his body.
A tweet apparently posted by his wife says: “May Allah accept Abu Jihad al Australi, obtained Shahada in ayn al-Islam. Reunited with my husband in Jannah.”
Another tweet, apparently by the same woman, reads: “I’m the most content I’ve ever been in my life.”
Content, eh? No more beatings? No more oppression?
Rahman, from Roxburgh in Melbourne’s north, had posted pictures of himself online posing with a silver-plated AK-47 gun in Syria.
In a post sent in January, Rahman urged others to “let the heads fly and blood flow.”
He added: “Spill blood young aussies. Don’t be humiliated especially if u cant b here in sham (Syria).”
He also posted pictures of himself with notorious Sydney extremist Mohamed Elomar, who last year posted pictures of himself holding the severed heads of Syrian government soldiers.
Rahman’s father has reportedly said his son had brought shame on the family….
