Here again, a Muslim who lives in a Western country and is afforded all of the benefits that a civilized country like Canada can provide goes jihad. At the risk of repeating myself for the umpeenth time, this war is ideological. Nationality, race, ethnicity, borders, hair color, shoe size are irrelevant. It is Islamic jihad. That is the common thread. Holy war. Period.
Doing it for Allah is more powerful than any man-made rationale or reason. Allah wants heads? Then he shall get heads!
The Islamic State has apparently found a “cheerleader” in Canada. The man from Greater Toronto Area continues to defend the actions of the Middle-Eastern extremists group on Twitter.
Un Muayad, (L) a Ramadi resident fighting alongside tribal fighters, fires her rifle during clashes with the al Qaeda-linked Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) in Ramadi May 19, 2014. Muayad has been fighting against the Al-Qaeda branch since the beginning of the uprising in her city, where a relative of her husband was killed by the ISIL. More than 420,000 people have already escaped the two main cities of western Anbar province, Falluja and Ramadi, in fighting since the start of the year. Residents say the new pounding of Falluja’s residential neighbourhoods appears aimed at driving out all remaining civilians in preparation for an all-out assault to defeat armed groups once and for all.

The man, who uses Twitter user as Abu Turaab (@AlTuraabSVD), defended IS activities and evidently seemed to be pro-Jihad. He was “unmasked” by the National Post, which identified him to be Mohammed Ali, a 23-year-old Canadian citizen. He was a former Mississauga resident and left the country for Turkey and then for Syria, the website reported. His parents said that he had gone for a couple of weeks after he had left Canada in April 2014.
Turaab aka Ali is apparently one of the modern-day Islamists who use the social media to express freely about their love for Jihad. He quoted Islamic militant Anwar Al-Awlaki who, according to the United States, was a major al-Qaeda talent-recruiter. “”If their wisdom does not lead them to the Truth, it’s not wisdom,” Turaab tweeted Al-Awlaki’s quote.
Turaab tries to motivate people to become Jihadists. He also claimed that he was not afraid of threats. “Stop threatening me with drone strikes and death. That’s like threatening a fat American with a visit to McDonalds and a Big Mac,” he tweeted. His tweets on the anniversary of 9/11 also revealed that his love for “martyrdom”. “9/11. A day of awakening, for both the Muslim and non-Muslim alike,” he wrote, “Don’t stop me from Martyrdom, for it will be a celebration of my new life.” He also shared a video on YouTube “May The Eyes of Cowards Never Sleep, Rayat Al Tawheed – Battle with Assad forces” which was later deleted by YouTube “as a violation of YouTube’s policy on violence.”
He also tweeted in August that he could not wait for the day when the Islamic State would behead the first U.S. soldier. “Soccer anyone?” he wrote apparently giving a hint of playing soccer with the “head” of the decapitated soldier. Later, he tweeted after American journalist James Foley had been beheaded by the Islamic State that it was “time to play soccer.”
“Roses are red, Violets are blue, #IS is coming, To a town near you. :)” he wrote on Sept 9.
