Who are the Senegalese men joining the Islamic State group?

One of the young Senegalese men who left to wage jihad under the banner of the Islamic State (IS) organisation in Libya was a promising young medical student named Sadio Gassama. Now he and his fellow fighters proudly post on Facebook about their new lives as members of the jihadist group. This comes as a shock to Sadio’s former classmate, who remembers Sadio as pious, but not as someone who’d wage jihad.

    It’s always amusing to hear that jihad has nothing to do with Mohammedan piety.

    • Yea, they’re all radicalized by the internet!

        I met a muslim TFW who tried to tell me radicalization of muslim youths was a jewish plot.

    “A promising medical student”. Must be another one of those people who goes all jihadi because of poverty and lack of opportunity.

    • It’s a tough life.

    more african criminals who discover they have a new lease on life,
    a new name, powerful new identity and new ways to commit
    murderous atrocities where they will be paid & praised.
