“A propaganda video of his final moments were released online last week, with the jihadi describing his decision through the use of a Qur’anic quote.” One might almost get the idea that this kind of thing had something to do with Islam. Good thing we have Obama and Kerry and David Cameron and everyone else to assure us that it isn’t so.
“British ISIS fighter carries out deadly suicide bomb attack killing and wounding 80 people in Iraq,” by Tom Wyke, MailOnline, October 19, 2015:
A British ISIS fighter has carried out a devastating suicide bomb attack near the jihadi held city of Ramadi in Iraq.
An ISIS statement claimed that the fighter, known only as Abu Omar al-Britani, had taken part in a twin suicide bomb attack, killing and wounding 80 people.
The attack was carried out as Iraqi Special Forces launched a large offensive to try to re-take the ISIS held city.
A photograph emerged on social media showing the British fighter sitting behind an office desk in Anbar province.
The fighter is dressed in a white thobe and has chunky gold watch on his wrist. His large framed glasses poke out above the black mask which covers half of his face.
In what appears to be an office, the fighter has a large knife, a single green hand grenade and a pistol placed in front of him on the work top.
A single copy of the Qu’ran rests next to a laptop as the jihadi poses with his gloved index finger pointed up to the sky to show his oneness with God.
A second suicide bomber was used in the attack and is thought to be a Syrian national. He was named only as a Abu Qatiba al-Shami.
The horrific bomb attack comes as ISIS continue to hold out at Ramadi, after successfully capturing the city in May.
The death of Omar al-Britani marks the second British suicide bomber to die for ISIS in an operation at Ramadi.
British Kosovan Fatlum Shalaku carried out a deadly suicide bomb attack during the taking of the city.
A propaganda video of his final moments were released online last week, with the jihadi describing his decision through the use of a Qur’anic quote.
Just before he climbed into his armoured vehicle, laden with explosives, Fatlum said his last words: ‘I just want to go out there with a bang.’
