ISIS recruits: Cooking and cleaning is the reality facing fighters

LAST week Indian student Areeb Majeed was just one of several recruits who found out the hard way what life fighting for IS is really like.

Majeed travelled to Iraq to join the Islamic State group in May only to return home disillusioned after jihadists made him clean toilets and do other menial jobs…

…And he is not the only one.

Letters published in a French newspaper last week reveal several of the estimated 376 French fighters with the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) were bored, terrified or otherwise “fed up” with the gruelling reality of their jihad in Syria.

Not only did fighters complain about the winter conditions but one remarked how he was missing the simpler things in life, like his iPod working.

“I’m sick and tired. My iPod doesn’t work anymore,” one recruit wrote. “I have to return.”

Another wrote how he was sick of doing other people’s dirty work…

    The foreign volunteers are ‘dirt’ to the local boys who consider themselves MORE ISLAMIC THAN THOU! They hate white people and Pakistani Muslims and Oriental Muslims. Any African Muslims who go there will be treated the worst of all! These Muztards are the worst racists imaginable. They think they OWN Islam because Islam comes from Iraq and Syria (not Arabia) and they can do anything they want with it. Many of these jihadist will lose their faith in Islam and become the enemies of Islam. Count on it.

  • So, these are liberal poseurs who whine about daily chores?

    Why can’t these people be easily defeated?

      Give the Kurds sufficient arms and they will. In Kobani, outgunned Kurds have fought heavily armed ISIS to a standstill, with the ISIS death toll climbing.

    Oh no, what will we do without their diversity?

    So they were all hoping to slaughter, rape, loot and pillage. Well, somebody has to do the drudgery and the enslaved are in no condition for it.

    Maybe he is just so disappointed that he didn’t get to have any goats. Related to IS – a comment over at WZ or maybe Atlas blog linked to this story today but I have no idea if this is true or from a reliable news source although it sounds plausible. Yuk.

      Now, this could be right (after all even a stopped clock is right twice a day). But the Sunday Sport has a dreadful reputation in the UK. It’s not difficult to find the Sunday Sport on the web but I’m not going to put up a link for it. Have a look (if you must) but the Latin tags: Caveat emptor and Cum grano salis, come to mind.

    These animals clean thier toilets? How do you clean a hole in the sand?

    Humiliating for them, as drudgery is what they’d regard as women’s work.
    Not enough slaves, and the recruitment for jihad al-nikah not going so well?
