Dr Kamleh was by all accounts a good Muslim and reconnected with his faith. But our bleeding hearts don’t see it that way.
Lets not endanger our jihad quack:
Jihadi medic Tareq Kamleh ‘may die because of leaks’
A senior Royal Adelaide Hospital medico who worked with Islamic State recruit Tareq Kamleh has accused colleagues who have spoken to the media of putting his life at risk, suggesting Kamleh’s “jihad” may be “his own way of atoning for his behaviour”.
The Australian on Monday quoted former colleagues saying Kamleh had engaged in sexually predatory behaviour during his time as a medical student, intern and registrar in South Australia.
In a propaganda video posted online late last week, Perth-raised Kamleh, the child of a Palestinian father and German mother who converted to Islam, urged fellow Muslim medical professionals to join Islamic State.
Royal Adelaide Hospital clinical associate professor Ken Lim responded to the media coverage with several strident posts on Facebook, telling colleagues it was “sad” people felt it necessary to share their views with journalists.
“Of course his exploits were loose and unethical — if any of the stories he told us were true — but maybe this jihad is his own way of atoning for his behaviour, however misguided it is — he won’t ever have a chance to explain himself,” Professor Lim wrote. “There’s no doubt he would’ve hurt people along the way, but gossiping to the media is just vindictive, especially where personal opinion seeps in — a la The Australian article quoting someone who believed he was ‘completely confused about his identity’. It will only cause more grief to his family, and possibly get his head chopped off … then I wonder whether anyone who whispered to the media will think it was worth it?”
In a subsequent post, Professor Lim told people they needed to stop “#feedingthebuzz” by talking to the media and posting on Facebook.
“I’m not condoning his current or former actions, but if you can make that moral judgment with his history, (that) he ‘should’ve expected this’, then by exposing him you are being just as reckless with the consequences as he was. He may die because of what has been leaked.”
