Many jihadis over the years have been pronounced dead, only to resurface again later. Western governments seem more committed to appearing successful in fighting jihadis in the eyes of the public than in actually doing anything effective to fight them.
“From beyond the grave: Australian jihadist previously thought to be killed in Syria ‘made threatening calls’ over attempt to repossess his house,” by Brianne Tolj, Liam Quinn and Lucy Thackray, Daily Mail Australia, February 13, 2016:
Notorious Australian ISIS terrorist Khaled Sharrouf, who was thought to have been killed in drone strikes in Syria last year, has supposedly been making threatening phone calls in an attempt to stop law officials from seizing his home.
Sharrouf has allegedly tried to contact people in Australia on several occasions recently, including a death threat received by a person in Sydney in January, according to the Daily Telegraph.
Law enforcement officials are trying to obtain a home that has been closely linked to the violent terrorist but Sharrouf doesn’t want give up the property.
“Sharrouf thinks it’s his,” an official told the Daily Telegraph.
‘He wants to foster an image that he’s dead.’
Officials said they don’t believe that Sharrouf is dead because of a steady stream of reports received indicating that he is still alive.
They mysterious phone calls come just days after it was reported that Sharrouf’s wife, Tara Nettleton, 31, died from appendicitis complications in late 2015 in Syria when she was unable to access crucial medical treatment, the Sydney Morning Herald said.
The fate of the couple’s five children, all of whom hold Australian passports, and eight-week-old granddaughter is now up in the air.
Tara’s father Peter Nettleton refused to confirm if his daughter had died when contacted by Daily Mail Australia.
Tara died just after she became a grandmother, with her daughter Zaynab, 14, giving birth to her first child – fathered by notorious terrorist and her father’s best friend, Mohamed Elomar, according to The Australian.
She and her five children were believed to have been living in the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa after they abandoned their comfortable life in suburban Sydney two years ago….
