Jordanian Jihadist Lived to Die in Syria
[An Nahar] The widow and children of Salafist Mahmoud Abdelal, who went kaboom!" in Syria last month, were all ears as his proud but grieving mother described his commitment to jihad.
His story is particularly timely, given that U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
... sometimes described as
The Liberatress of Libya and at other times as Mrs. Bill, never as
Another Charles Evans Hughes ...
urged the Syrian opposition on Wednesday to resist efforts by Islamist "extremists" to hijack the revolution to oust Hereditary President-for-Life Bashir
The Scourge of Hama...
Four boys and a girl, the oldest only 10, gathered around their mother, Khadijah Tahawi in a humble house in one of the most underprivileged parts of Baqaa, Jordan's largest Paleostinian refugee camp north of Amman.
Hind Hassan, 50, pulled herself together as she spoke of Mahmoud, one of scores of Jordanian Salafists
...Salafists are ostentatiously devout Moslems who figure the ostentation of their piety gives them the right to tell others how to do it and to kill those who don't listen to them...
said to have gone to neighboring Syria to fight, with at least 13 reportedly killed.
"My son was very very religious. He started reciting the Koran when he was 10. He never stopped dreaming of jihad," Hind told Agence La Belle France Presse as of one of the children cried.
After graduating from a vocational training center in Amman, he became a successful mechanic.
"I prevented him so many times from going to the West Bank to fight Israel," Hindi said of her son, 33, who is a Jordanian of Paleostinian origin.
| And so right she was, too. Syria is much better for such things. The Juices are much too fond of arresting jihadis instead, preventing the martyrdom which will get the family into Paradise without any effort of their own.|
