Ivy League Student Traveled to Syria to Join Islamic State — a Few Months Later, He Was Begging U.S. to Save Him

Like many fellow Americans, Mohimanul Alam Bhuiya aimed for the stars.

In a 2008 essay for his Brooklyn high school newspaper, Bhuiya wrote, “I believe that I have greatness in me. I want to be a superhero,” the Washington Post reported. He added kudos to President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill who “fought a worldwide battle against the evil supervillain Adolf Hitler.”

Soon he was enrolled at Columbia University — and the brand-new Ivy Leaguer seemingly had the world at his feet.

Then something shifted.

Drain him of info then….

    His parents and entire extended family need to be effectively “screwed for life”.
    We need to do that.

    • We definitely need to do that.

      • BillyHW

        Trump is going to do that.

    • Until he kicks Barack Obama in the balls for lying to American-born Muslim youth about “Islam is a religion of peace”, I don’t believe him. And how many innocent civilians did he have to kill in order to be accepted into the ranks of ISIS? How many little Christian girls did he rape in order to prove his fidelity? Both he and Obama belong in jail.

        “Religion of peace” …. here’s another quote.

        Islam is a religion of peace. Stop killing in the name of the religion
        Sheikh Hasina, Bangladesh PM
        She also thanked all those who had expressed their solidarity with Bangladesh, and vowed that terrorism would be exterminated at all costs.
        Sheikh Hasina added: ‘Islam is a religion of peace. Stop killing in the name of the religion. Please stop tarnishing our noble religion…I implore you to come back to the rightful path and uphold the pride of Islam.’

        • Fox’s the “Kelly file” had an interesting town hall last night. As expected, the Muslim youth defended Islam as a “religion of peace” and quoted from the Koran.

          The problem is the definition of “peace” in Islam is different from our Western understanding of the term. And I don’t understand why nobody is explaining that difference because it’s not that complicated:

          “Peace” in Islam is when you have involuntarily subjugated everyone to Islam, by any means necessary. When you have eliminated all the non-Muslims, naturally you will be in a state of “peace”.

          It’s strikingly similar to the Marxist definition of peace: “Peace” is when you have involuntarily subjugated everyone to Socialism, by any means necessary. When you have eliminated all the capitalists (or individualists), naturally you will be in a state of “peace”.

          Both are supremacist totalitarian ideologies that eliminate everyone else’s freedom. They can be imposed violently or non-violently — either way you lose your freedom and natural rights. In that context, the violence is somewhat of a side issue.

        Balls you say, surely you jest.

        • Oh, he’s got ’em alright. But I think he keeps them tucked up under his ass like Bruce Jenner.

  • HalcyonDaze

    And the point of that story was? They should have just put him in a deep dark dungeon and thrown away the key. No fanfare, no sympathy, no second chances. His “demand” that the US Gov’t extract and exonerate him indicates he doesn’t have a fekin clue that he did anything wrong which, means the clown is likely either a Liberal, an idiot or sociopath and I’ll pick the last.

    • Clinton

      Absolutely. He hasn’t been living under a rock– he knew going in
      that his heroes at ISIS killed innocent civilians and raped women and
      enslaved children and burned people alive and threw gay men off
      of tall buildings and stoned women for having the effrontery to
      be raped– and instead of these widely-known facts turning him
      off, he was attracted to ISIS.

      Yes, he’s a sociopath, and NO, we don’t want him back. I hope
      his new friends burn him alive for trying to run away. One less
      sociopath running around over here.

    You don’t have to be an Ivy Leaguer to be a fool, but it sure helps. As William F. Buckley said, “I’d rather be governed by the first 400 names in the Boston phone book than by the faculty of Harvard.”

    Wow the snowflake pyjama boy couldn’the hard-core reality and choked. Gee what a surprise

    Well go be a superhero at Smelly Wog State.

    So he’s in favour of sorta less icky jihad… Whatever.

    He should be publicly hanged and left to rot.
