Experts worry that there will now be a shortage of converts to Islam to do important work like beheading British soldiers in London and writing books about their time working as guards at Gitmo before they saw the dark.
Damascus, 18 June (AKI) – Damascus, 18 June (AKI) – Several hundred westerners including Italians have been captured fighting alongside rebels seeking to overthrow president Bashar al-Assad, government sources told Adnkronos on Tuesday.
“We are holding 300 westerners, of whom six or seven are Italian, according to the information I have. They are all converts to Islam,” the source said.
Converts to Islam are particularly dangerous because they are eager to prove their loyalty and have nothing but Islam in their life anymore.
One of the good things about the Syrian Civil War is that it is diverting the sort of people who would otherwise be killing Westerners.
