Al-Qaeda’s Affiliate In Syria Tries Crowdfunding

A militant who fights alongside Al-Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate the Al-Nusra Front has called for donations to help the group purchase equipment, offering a glimpse into the group’s architecture and its fund-raising.

The militant, who goes under the nom de guerre Abu Rofik (or Rafik) Abdul Mukaddim Tatarstani, made two fund-raising appeals this week via his Nusra propaganda page on the Russian social-networking site VKontakte.

    I was thinking the same thing MG42. If could be Justin’s brother…

    I guess we know where Justin was hiding when the cost of his pretend budget was revealed and he was nowhere in sight to defend it.

    I don’t see any windows in that picture.
    Glass which is made of sand doesn’t seem to exist in a place where there is nothing but sand.
    Ozymandias would be proud.
