Australian hate preacher turned terrorist boasts about his mission to ‘remove non-Muslims from the Middle East’

A former Sydney preacher who is now a senior figure of notorious terror group Jabhat al-Nusra has spoken out for the first time about why he joined the jihadi cause.

Abu Sulayman Muhajir fled to Syria at least two years ago and has found himself added to the most wanted list of Western intelligence agencies.

He started his association with extremist organisations when he became a mediator between two warring groups, Jabhat al-Nusra and Islamic State (IS).
