Voice and Weapon Jihad: Islamic State says Muslim from Canada “waged jihad with his voice and weapon”

The question that arises in all such cases is this: where did Mohammad Abdullah Mohammad learn his Islam? Which mosque in Toronto did he frequent? It is a dogma of the Western intelligentsia that all Muslims in the West are peaceful and tolerant, and accept Western values readily, and that anyone who suspects otherwise is a racist, bigoted “Islamophobe.” Mohammad Abdullah Mohammad’s case, like so many others, calls that into question. But will Canadian authorities reconsider their premises? Of course not.

“Canadian man ‘waged jihad with his voice and weapon’ for ISIL, terror group confirms,” by Adrian Humphreys, National Post, January 27, 2019:

An Islamic State-linked media outlet confirmed one of their fighters captured in Syria is a Canadian man who “waged jihad with his voice and weapon” as the narrator of the terror group’s news and propaganda.

A poster praising the man as a “hero,” was published Sunday by the Al-Muhajireen Foundation, an outlet with known links to ISIL, according to the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which monitors terrorist communications.

The notice features a photograph identical to a man who identified himself as Mohammad Abdullah Mohammad, a Canadian from Toronto who was captured on Jan. 13, during a firefight with the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), a U.S.-supported coalition of militias.

At the time, the SDF released a video of their captive speaking in fluent English about his time with the Islamic State, also known as ISIL and ISIS. In it, he says he came from Canada in 2013.

He is alleged to have been the masked host — and an apparent gunman — in a notorious ISIL execution video, as well as the narrator of the terror group’s claims of responsibility for several deadly terror attacks in the West.

Amarnath Amarasingam, a university researcher who studies Western foreign fighters, was the first to reveal the captured former Seneca College student from Toronto is believed to be the fighter known as Abu Ridwan Al-Kanadi, the voice behind some of ISIL’s most notorious propaganda.

On Sunday, ISIL appeared to confirm that.

Al-Muhajireen announced that Kurdish forces had arrested an ISIL media operative, a Canadian nicknamed Abu Ridwan Al-Kanadi.

He had been the one to “translate and read the productions and news reports of the Islamic State in the English language,” according to a translation of the Arabic notice by MEMRI….
