America’s First Home-Grown Al Qaeda Suicide Bomber in Syria

U.S. officials know who the terrorist really is, but they have told journalists they won't release his name.

For the first time, the United States has become involved in the Syrian civil war in a close-up, personal, intimate way. An American citizen-turned-suicide bomber for Al Qaeda attacked a Syrian government complex on Sunday in the northern Idlib region.

News of the attack was posted on radical Islamic websites by the Al Qaeda-linked Jabhat al-Nusra( Al Nusra Front) terrorist organization. It was also tweeted around the English-speaking world on Tuesday via the Twitter social networking site.

“Abu Hurayra al-Amriki” performed a martyrdom operation in Idlim, Jabal al-Arba’een. May Allah accept him,” the post read.

Recently Al Qaeda had promised an attack from an “American,” according to CBS News. The words “al-Amriki” mean, “the American” in Arabic. U.S. officials have identified the terrorist’s legal name although they refuse to release that information to the public. He is believed to be the first American suicide bomber to strike in Syria.

The FBI told media that several dozen other Americans have also gone to Syria to join in the fighting.

Numerous photos have been posted on Twitter from various sources — most are re-posts from Jabhat al Nusra, actually — showing the aforementioned young bearded man all dressed up in his go-to-bombing suit, complete with explosives vest. There’s a shot of the huge bomb-laden truck he allegedly drove to his destination.

The saddest and most ironic is the one with him holding a half-grown kitten standing in front of a black and white sign written in flowing Arabic script that reads, “There is no God but Allah and Mohammed is His Prophet,” – the rallying cry of all radical Islamist groups. That one is attached to the photos that show the subsequent results of his handiwork.

  1. It seems like most “al-amrikans” are turning “al-qaeda”! Hope! They will come to their senses soon…

  2. Will the American people continue to fund Unconstitutional behavior by our elected politicians? do we just talk about the problem until freedom is a memory ? Join us on BABBAGE-TORRES &FRIENDS TALK SHOW. Any elected official that is violating the Constitution of the United States should be removed from office immediately, then cut off all funds and sent a bill for repaying the taxpayer for all money paid to them while in office. Then serve a 20 year sentence for violating the Constitution of the United States! Too many have given their lives for Freedom to just do nothing but talk about the problem!

  11. Lize Bartsch says:

    Who would give your precious life to kill others? There is judgment after death, and it will be hard on those who play God. No virgins will be awaiting you, only the devils to mock you for eternity for believing their lies!!!

    one less towel head in the world is a good thing…

  13. Ronny Mol says:

    If you heard it is the Jews fault, there is some truth to that statement. Why? Because the Jews are 1/2 of .0001 of the world's population but the world was made for the Jews. If the Jews rebel against G-d's commandments then the world suffers. But did you know this: In the Gemara (Talmud) Rosh HaShana daf (page 17) it says:
    A braisa is cited regarding the judgments of two different types of sinful people. Those that sin with their body will go down to Gehinom and will be punished there for twelve months. After twelve months, their body is destroyed, their souls get burned and a wind scatters their remains under the feet of the righteous. Sectarians, informers, heretics, those who denied the Resurrection of the Dead, those who instilled their terror in the Land of Life, and those that caused others to sin, such as Yeravam ben Nevat and his colleagues, go down to Gehinom and are judged there forever. from http://www.dafnotes.org Want to do Teshuva but do NOT know how, go to http://www.divineinformation.com search for Teshuva lectures.
