American took part in suicide bombings

Looks like not only Somali-American Muslims are returning to the Middle East and North Africa to wage jihad but white native-born American Muslim converts are also. 

If anything this indicates the extent of the global jihad and the deep influence Islam is hving on people around the world.


American took part in suicide bombings, Al Nusrah Front sharia official says

An American was one of four suicide bombers who took part in a recent coordinated assault in Syria, according to an Al Nusrah Front sharia official who is active on Twitter.

On May 25, the Al Nusrah Front, al Qaeda's official branch in Syria, announced that the joint attacks had been launched in conjunction with another rebel group, Suqour al Sham. A rumor circulated on Twitter that one of the four suicide bombers was an American, but there was no official confirmation from either of the groups responsible for the attacks.

In an update earlier today, Abu Sulayman al Muhajir tweeted the picture above and gave the jihadist's name as "Abu Hurayra Al-Amriki," meaning "the American." The accompanying text reads, "Performed a martydom operation in Idlib, Jabal Al-Arba'een. May Allah accept him."

Abu Sulayman would presumably be in a position to know the assailant's nationality and identity. He became one of the top sharia officials in the Al Nusrah Front after relocating from Australia to Syria last year. Prior to his move, Abu Sulayman became well known for his attempts to drum up support for the jihad in Syria. In a video released by the Al Nusrah Front in mid-April, Abu Sulayman displayed knowledge of al Qaeda's inner workings and organizational structure.
