Jihad For Dummies

Hugh Fitzgerald:

But they wanted to know a bit more.

So they went off to Jihad in Syria, to kill Infidels (Shia, Alawites, Christians), armed with three useful guides: Islam For Dummies, The Qur’an For Dummies, Arabic For Dummies.

The telling, and not merely comical, story is here.

British Muslim terrorists from Birmingham bought ‘Islam for Dummies’ book before travelling to Syria to join rebel fighters in jihad

  • Mohammed Nahin Ahmed and Yusuf Zubair Sarwar admit terror offences
  • Best friends, both 22, fled Birmingham for Syria and fought for eight months
  • Sarwar had left his mother note explaining why he was going ‘to do jihad’
  • Pair arrested as they returned to Heathrow after parents told police
  • They told detectives they had been doing humanitarian work in Syria
  • But police found cache of photos of them with weapons and TNT on clothes
  • Online messages sent before they left UK showed they planned to fight
  • ‘I cannot tell anyone I’m going to jihad. Lol. I’ll get arrested’, one said
  • Bought Islam For Dummies and The Koran For Dummies ahead of Syria trip

Two British  Paki terrorists who fled the UK to fight in Syria ordered books Islam For Dummies, The Koran For Dummies and Arabic For Dummies from Amazon ahead of their trip.

Mohammed Nahin Ahmed also told his childhood friend Yusuf Zubair Sarwar, both 22, ‘I cannot tell anyone I’m going to jihad. Lol. I’ll get arrested’ before they left Birmingham and joined rebels in Aleppo, a court heard today.

After eight months fighting in Syria they were arrested on their return to Heathrow Airport in January after their relatives tipped off counter-terrorism detectives.

Sarwar had left a note for his mother arguing going ‘to do jihad’ in Syria was ‘doing the best deed in Allah’s eyes’ and said the Taliban and Al Qaeda ‘are not bad’, so she went to the police.

After returning to Britain they told officers they had been doing humanitarian work but a camera containing ‘thousands’ of images, including some of them posing with guns on the front line, was found in their luggage.

Traces of ‘military-grade explosives’, including TNT and nitro-glycerine were on the men’s clothes and trainers.  (There is more, much more…)
