By his own lights, he isn’t guilty. He isn’t a terrorist; he is an executor of the wrath of Allah: “Fight them; Allah will punish them by your hands and will disgrace them and give you victory over them and satisfy the breasts of a believing people, and remove the fury in the believers’ hearts.” (Qur’an 9:14-15)
