“I didn’t do it because I am bloodthirsty. It was jihad. I thought, at some point these Shiites would convert or leave the city. I’m not a butcher. I was carrying out a plan.” Abu Abdullah thus provides a handy capsule explanation of the jihadist agenda: the bloodshed is not carried out for its own sake, but to compel the survivors to toe the line, drop their “heretical” or “apostate” or “Infidel” practices, and become pious Sunni Muslims. Despite the clarity and rationality of his explanation, however, Western analysts will almost certainly discount it as unimportant, as they have already decided that Islam has nothing to do with all this.
“Inside the mind of an ISIS suicide bomb plotter: Unrepentant mastermind whose explosives killed hundreds of innocent people insists ‘I am no butcher… it was jihad,'” by John Hall, MailOnline, July 16, 2015:
A explosives expert who killed hundreds of people on behalf of the the Islamic State terror group in Iraq has refused to apologise for his crimes, saying: ‘I am no butcher…it was jihad’.
Speaking from a high security prison in the capital Baghdad where he is held, the terrorist named Abu Abdullah described in detail how he would order ISIS fighters to carry out suicide bombings.
The Islamic extremist, who is in his late 30s, speaks about the atrocities with a chilling calm that prison guards say proves he is a ‘level-headed fanatic’ – precise and methodical in his organisation of scores of atrocities carried out while he was serving as ISIS’ head of suicide attacks planning.
Abu Abdullah is now understood to be cooperating with the Iraqi regime to reveal the inner workings of the bloodthirsty terror group led by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
But although he is now a reluctant part of efforts to degrade and eventually destroy ISIS, he remains unrepentant about his past life organising attacks on police officers, soldiers and Shia mosques.
‘I didn’t do it because I am bloodthirsty. It was jihad. I thought, at some point these Shiites would convert or leave the city. I’m not a butcher. I was carrying out a plan,’ he told Germany’s Spiegel.
Speaking of his role, Abu Abdullah said: ‘I was only responsible for the last part of the operation, and that meant preparing the men in my workshop and then bringing them to the right location.’
‘I received the person’s measurements in advance from the leadership in order to be able to make a well-fitting belt. But I always had belts in different sizes prepared.’
The ISIS militant revealed that he had lost count of the number of mass murders he’d helped to plan during the 18 months he served as ISIS’ head of suicide attacks, but boasted of developing a range of techniques as he experimented to maximise his explosive belts’ power and capacity to kill….
