Karma’s a bitch: Former Saudi chant singer ‘joins’ ISIS militants

Shwaib is currently in Iraq leading prayers as an imam after he had participated in the celebrations of pledging allegiance to ISIS’ leader.

After spending five years working as an Islamic chant singer and later a mosque imam in Riyadh, Maher Mishal Al-Shwaib, 25, joined the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) last April, al-Hayat newspaper reported this week.

Al-Shwaib traveled to Syria last April and joined Syrians fighting the regime and later ISIS.

Although his friend, Raed Fahad, who is also an Islamic chant singer and whom he met in Syria, left ISIS after realizing the group was a terrorist organization, Al-Shwaib continues to perform as an Islamic chant singer and has called on Syrian men and children to join ISIS…

Stirring up the Nejd with Wahabbism seemed like such a good idea in 1924. It allowed the al-Saud tribe to take over Mecca and Medina.

But what comes around goes around.  You had better make those troops on the Iraq border are loyal to the al-Sauds and not to Wahabbism.
