He Was Such a Darling: "He Sang the Koran and All That’

Update:

Nobody knew him, nobody remembers him:

Hassan Shibly, director of the Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), said he knew nothing about Abu-Sahla.

VERO BEACH, Fla. (TheBlaze/AP) — The American man who launched a suicide bombing against Syrian government troops was called “a real activist” and a “full Muslim” by a friend of his brother and grew up in Central Florida and attended several colleges in the state before moving abroad.

U.S. officials identified the bomber as Moner Mohammad Abu-Salha of Florida, but have said little else. Records show a person with that name lived with his family in a stucco home in a gated community plunked among the Orange Groves on the edge of Vero Beach.

His nom de guerre was Abu Huraira al-Amriki, “the American,” according to the Washington Post.

His father was “from Jordan.” Perhaps, on other occasions, he might be described as a “Palestinian”? Or was that father a Jordanian Eastern Palestinian, instead of being a Western Palestinian Eastern Palestinian? And the mother was an American who converted to Islam, with all the craziness that that now naturally implies. Young Moner Abu-Salha was the usual, according to reports: likable kid, nothing special, you get the picture. He was nothing at all. He went to two, or perhaps three, substandard junior-high-school level community colleges, dropped out, and found what he had never lost, but perhaps not taken to heart beforein quite the same way: Islam.

On Facebook he “liked” the Qur’an.

He liked it so much, he kept reading it over and over, and singing the verses in what he no doubt imagined was the right style. He liked what it told him to do, liked how it told him to view the world, that he went off to Syria to kill Infidels — those Alawites — and I don’t know if he succeeded, but he did manage, while trying, to kill himself. One more suicide bomber, this one of interest only because he was, not an Ameroican, excactly, but rather an American citizen, that citizenship having been acquired through his parents, and one of whom,his father, in being naturalized, I am sure perjured himself when he swore allegiance to the Constitution of the United States.
