Australian teenage ‘white jihadi’ dies in Isil suicide attack in Ramadi

An Australian teenager who ran away to fight for Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) has reportedly died in a suicide attack in Iraq.

Jake Bilardi, 18, was a high-achieving schoolboy from Melbourne, who converted to Islam after the death of his mother in 2009, when he was 13. He dropped out of school in the middle of last year and bought a one-way ticket to Istanbul, en route to Iraq and Syria.

On Wednesday it was reported that Bilardi, who used the nom-de-guerre bu Abdullah Al Australia, had died in a suicide attack, driving a white van packed with explosives into a target in Ramadi, in Anbar province.

    No one has to worry about him any longer, rest in pieces.

    It’s too bad that he went out as a suicide bomber taking innocent lives with him, because a bullet to the head was the death he had earned.

    good riddance

  • Good riddance

  • I wonder what the cause is.

    You take one white Australian kid. He becomes a Muslim.

    He goes to Syria, And goes on a suicide mission.

    Do you think Islamic theology had anything to do with it?

    • No I’m certain it was the white man’s racism.

    Anyone who converts to pislam should be investigated for psychiatric problems.

      Why waste the resources? Just send it to Mecca to study it’s choice forever.

    I guess his comrades got tired of him and found some other prettier convert with softer skin to be their next bacha bazi boy.

    • Mal

      Ick. But that looks and sounds about right, Martin.

    • Heh;)
