Americans Leave Home to Wage Jihad for ISIS

Americans that join up with terrorists deserve nothing but a hellfire missile on their head.
Check it out:

In the past few months, as many as 15 Somali-American men have left the Minneapolis-St. Paul area in order to join radical jihadist insurgents in Syria, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

One of the Minnesota residents told MPR News that he had joined the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), the militant Islamist group that has been gaining territory in blitzkrieg fashion in both Syria and Iraq. Some say ISIS’s tactics are so ruthless and destructive that they pose a greater threat to civilization than even Al Qaeda.

“A Muslim has to stand up for [what’s] right,” said Abdirahmaan Muhumed, a 29-year-old Muslim who packed up one day, leaving nine children behind, to go to Syria to “give up this worldly life for Allah.” Muhumed’s big-picture goal was to “save the global Muslim community.” He disregarded claims that he was a terrorist, saying that if people wanted to look at him that way, then he was “happy with it” if it meant pursuing his course. He said he asked Allah to “make my mom strong for the decision that I made.”

What may be most shocking about Muhumed’s journey towards jihad is the fact that he has no family members or ethnic connections to the Levant region for which he departed. Muhumed’s only connection is through his Muslim faith.
