The Britons signing up for Jihad

When Ifthekar Jaman, from Portsmouth, arrived in Syria in 2013 and began posting images of himself posing as a jihadist fighter – and, somewhat bizarrely, occasional pictures of cats – he seemed something of an exception.

Here was a 23-year-old who had arrived in the middle of an increasingly internecine conflict, saying it was his duty to take up arms because he saw Muslims being slaughtered.

Two years on, he is dead – and we now know how far from an exception he was.

    He’s dead?…whoopydoo!!!!!

    • Yup, a happy ending.

        Only how many million more jihadis left?

      • Dana Garcia

        Yes, beginner jihadists are more likely to get wacked, either from enthusiasm for allah or inexperience. Their one-way trips to dar al-islam should therefore be encouraged.

    With Top Gear gone, besides jihadis, what reasons are there to pay attention to Pederast Island England?

  • In a related news, the Cat Union vehemently condemned the use of its members in Ifthekar Jaman’s jihadi propaganda.

    They should develop a Reality TV show where bounty hunters get to go after these traitors, allow betting, real time interviews, some nice dancers, and a high profile host. Basically a real life Running Man.

    Hey…so what’s wrongly bizarre about occasionally posting pictures of cats?
