“I am Christian, I go to church. My child is a church boy. The bad thing is Islam.” That’s what his mother said. Are British authorities going to bring her up on charges of “islamofauxbia”? She should be glad that her son converted to the religion that British authorities so ardently court and favor, shouldn’t she? Anyway, when are the churches going to start teaching their young people how to withstand this dawah? How many more young Christians have to convert to Islam and be killed?

“Islamic State files leak: The ‘good British Christian’ who turned to jihad,” by Raf Sanchez and Camilla Turner, Telegraph, March 10, 2016:

A British jihadist killed while fighting for Isil in Syria was a “good Christian boy” who fell in with a gang and turned to radical Islam inside a UK prison, his mother has said.

The full story of Fasil Towalde’s short life can be told for the first time after his Isil recruitment forms and those of thousands of other fighters were leaked.

The trove of information on 1,763 jihadists includes details of 16 British fighters and sheds light on how they travelled from the UK to join the so-called caliphate.

The files reveal that the true name of the Isil fighter known by the nom de guerre Abu Abdullah al-Habashi was Fasil Towalde, a 21-year-old student from Camden in north London.

His mother, Himan Haile, confirmed in a tearful interview with The Telegraph that her son had been raised a Christian and grew up in London after the family fled violence in their native Eritrea.

“Fasil was not too much good, not too much bad. In my home he was a nice boy,” Mrs Haile said. He was arrested during the London riots and later fell in with a gang and converted to Islam in prison, she added.

“I am Christian, I go to church. My child is a church boy. The bad thing is Islam,” she said.

He disappeared in late 2013 and Mrs Haile called the police after three days without contact. By then it was too late and Isil records show that on December 28, 2013 he crossed from Turkey into northern Syria.

On the Isil registration form, which consists of 23 questions, he wrote down his mother’s first name and her street address in Camden. Eleven months later he was killed as Isil forces fought Kurdish troops for control of Kobane, a Syrian border town.

“He died for what? I don’t know. Every day I cry, in the morning, in the night,” his mother said….

      Learn how to spell Muslim and try again.

      • I know how to spell it. But I choose to spell it muslem. Thank you very much.

        • PeriShKis

          Agree

        • BlackJackShellac

          BOOM, SIR! Your intentional misspellings are my favorite.

        Actually, spelling doesn’t matter much in the middle east. I lived there for a time, and can tell you they just spell things as they hear them. They’ll even spell their own names differently from one document to the next.

        Ahmed/Ahmad
        I could go on, but really, they do this!

        • BlackJackShellac

      • PeriShKis

        Proper spelling is moslem-shitians

        • BlackJackShellac

    • PeriShKis

      you got to start with one then every day double. And you will see in one month you will have one million muslemshittians dead. Now that is nice, good numbers we can work with

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Islamophobia is epidemic, now mothers of muhadajeen have caught it. The same laws must apply to all who have this affliction.

  • barrydonnelly

    More like the The Good Christian APOSTATE , who in the end showed his True Colors like his Predecessor Judas Iscariot !!!

    • Rob Porter

      The fact is, he never was a good Christian or wouldn’t have converted to Islam. However, with churches leaders, pastors and others, so politically correct and cowardly, most are not talking about Islam or warning about Muslim violence.

    • PeriShKis

      Most probably his IS affiliates shot and kill him. There is no way they will allow a convert to survive

  • vercingetorix

    The good news is that he is dead!

  • Janet

    Boy will he be surprised when he finds no Allah, no virgins, no little boys, just hell where he can rot for all eternity! lMAO!!!
