 File under: Islamic State 

#1  He died in a hail of bullets while yelling 'Allahu Akbar' - meaning 'God is greatest' in Arabic.

Sadly we'll likely never know his motivation. Possibly the Reform Movement

#2 We should check the International Classification of Diseases. Surely there's a cause in there, somewhere.

Strong and athletic, Younes even won trophies for running and climbing.


But he sucked at dodging.

His relatives claim he was brainwashed.


Yeah, the Koran will do that.

#6 ...while yelling 'Allahu Akbar' - meaning 'God is greatest' in Arabic.

The Muslims seem to always push "God is Great" for this, but I have reason to believe that's just a subterfuge, and it's really "God is Greater."

This is the first I've seen of Greatest, does anyone had a good fix on this?

Could be that there are several meanings; if you're about to get shot or blow-up some people it might be different than during holy prayer.
