My bloody career (Jihadist fought in Afghanistan, Bosnia, Somalia, Iraq)
The Guardian ^ | April 23, 2006

Posted on 04/23/2006 3:36:31 PM PDT by joan

…Khalid fought in Afghanistan for two years...Afghanistan represented the birth of the global struggle...

In 1993, after Khalid had returned home from Afghanistan,...he went to join the fighting in Bosnia...

The combat was much more intense than the action he had seen in Afghanistan...In Bosnia, the enemy was right in front of you, and you had to kill or be killed each day. Khalid fought alongside a group called the Green Berets, named not after the American Special Forces but after the colour of Islam. One day, after a year at war in Bosnia, Khalid was on the front line between Tuzla and Zenica, battling Serbian snipers who were shooting into Muslim villages from a nearby mountain.

Suddenly, he came face to face with a Serb. The Serb got the jump, firing seven bullets into Khalid's stomach...

...It took hours to carry Khalid down the mine-covered trail. When he finally arrived at a triage area at the base of the mountain, he was put with a group of those too far gone to save and left to die.

Soon after, the medic who had given Khalid the morphine arrived and began searching for his patient. He found Khalid lying among the rows of the dead and ordered a Bosnian army helicopter to speed Khalid to a hospital, where he woke up in pre-op...

… It took Khalid several years to recover from his wounds. In 1996, he joined a group of Arab fighters going to Kosovo, where Christian Serbs were once again menacing a Muslim minority. By the time he arrived, however, the Serbs had already sealed off the country, making it impossible for him to enter. Unable to join the jihad, Khalid decided to move to England, where many of the brothers had settled.

These are only snipets from a very long piece about a Mujahideen. I had to excerpt a lot because it is from The Guardian.

It shows, from the Mujahideen's own words that they were in intense combat operations with the Serbs - he describes it as heavier than Afghanistan.

He was also shot when he was face to face with a Serb.

The Croats and others claim that Serbs didn't do much fighting against the Mujahideen, and the international community tries fictionalize Serbs claims that they were fighting these people. Yet in the details of the fighting by the fighters themselves, not to mention war footage and photos, there is plenty of evidence of Serbs fighting well armed and supplied combatants - whether local or foreign. The Serbs were outnumbered, by fighting forces, in Bosnia. They were tortured, killed and mutilated (whether before, during or after death) by the Muslims.

This man was fighting with the local Muslims "Green Berets" and was treated in their hospital and transported by a Bosnian Muslim Army helicopter. An Army many try to claim didn't exist and that they were only people fighting with rusty old guns - a lie.

Khalid, who agreed to recount the story of his jihad on the condition that his identity not be revealed

At this point, a friend at the qat chew hissed at Khalid in Arabic: 'Why are you telling him this? Don't talk about these things.'

'I have nothing to hide,' Khalid told him.

Jihadist cockroach. Has nothing to hide, but scurries out of the light. These Westerners he's befriended will be sorry when he encounters another "worthy cause" in the future.

Welcome to media la la land, this is the type of crap that was being employed in describing the Balkan conflicts for over 10 years now. PC nonsense.

the muslim green berets were bad bad news, atrocities in various regions of Bosnia against all "nonbelievers" of Islam. They killed muslims in hopes it would be put out it were the Serbs doing the killings, etc...

anyways, hoplite will come on board to say his rants of Serb hatred and muslim-loving bit.

What's funny is that Hoplite claimed he was in the Balkans during the 70's sometime if I recall correctly, somehow this makes him an expert in his nearsighted eyes.

Hoppy is too busy scouring the net for Destro to be right on anything, he gets a little lump in his pants when he finds him on some obscure blogger.

Notice how easily and comfortably the Al-Qaeda jihadists move around in Iran. And...

After Khalid spent a week in prison they let him out, just like they always did. They didn't have enough evidence to keep him. When he was released, his next-door neighbours, mostly white Britons, were there to welcome him home. 'I might doubt my own son,' one old man said, 'but I'll always believe Khalid.' Most of the Yemenis and other Muslims who had been Khalid's friends had deserted him when he was arrested, fearing for their own safety. When he saw his British neighbours standing by him, Khalid couldn't help bawling.

After the arrest, Khalid returned to Iraq for two more months in 2004, in part to honour the memory of Wa'il. Living in safe houses, he once again went out on raids against the Americans. The heaviest fighting he saw was in Al Qa'im, where 30 Arabs and more than a hundred Iraqis fought for a week against the Americans. Khalid saw seven brothers killed, mostly from Syria and Saudi Arabia. He believed the insurgents killed about 10 soldiers from the other side.

TRANSLATION: THEY KILLED AMERICANS.

Thanks, guys. I'm saving this brief passage above for the next time someone asks why we keep people confined at Guantanamo.

And how about that for a killer line:

"In 1996, he joined a group of Arab fighters going to Kosovo"

1999, a mere two years prior to 9-11 and NATO are working with the KLA who are recruiting Mujahideen to kill Christians/Infidels in Europe.

The Mujahideen worked closely to help target spot for NATO planes, and on suicide operations in central Kosovo. An entire Mujahideen unit was wiped out in a rearguard action at Meja (Sp).

The famous Captain Hook, aka Hamza, helped recruit hundreds for the Islamist cause. Your tax dollars at work.

I'm going to create a "Where's Destro?" web site just so Hoplite can play five knuckle shuffle all night. I'll also include some notables as Elvis and Hitler, Destro maybe the new "internet guy"!

Is this Destro?

Those evil damn Serbs. They just won't lay down and die for Muhammed.

Even though Islamic countries never have a picture of the pen on their flags they write propaganda very well.

One can put a personal touch on anyone. This guy went around the world killing people as Muhammed devout soldier and now we are supposed to feel sorry for him for "suffering" a stomach wound that he, (Implied) didn't deserve because he was just fighting for freedom; for his country. Sniff..

I mean, who wouldn't like a guy like that? Sounds like a Samuel Adams Son of Liberty type of guy right? Wrong!

The Brits can have him as far as I am concerned. They helped unleash Islam in Eastern Europe.

The bulk of the fighting against the Mujahideen was done by the HVO in and around Vitez, Travnik, Bugojno, and Hercegovina.

Did the Mujahideens fight mixed with locals when they fought Croats? Did the Muslim Green Berets fight Croats? Zoran, I believe, might have fought with them - or at least he saw their gory handiwork - he said they decapitated school children and put their heads on desks, for example.

There's this Scottish mercenary, John MacPhee, who fought with the HVO and Croat Special Forces in Bosnia and he describes a massacre of Croat civilians in Gornji Vakuf. Was the massacre done by Mujahideens, Bosnian Muslims or both? Because in his rage after seeing what the Muslims did, he brutally kills the first 2 Bosnian soldiers there he finds. I wondered if those soldiers had anything to do with the slaughter of the Croats - including babies - or if he was killing Bosniaks out of rage for what foreign Muslims had done.

They usually fought on their own as small groups but in coordination with the ABiH at all times.

Do you feel the Bosnian government could have done something to stop them or curtail the excesses of the Mujahideen - or do you agree with their defense that they had no control of them?

Also, do you know anything about the Muslim Green Berets, or did they only fight Serbs?

What are your estimates for how many foreign Muslims were there at some point during the war?

They could have curtailed them, but that would have stalled the flow of money from the Islamic world. The Green Berets were mostly fighting the Serbs in the Sarajevo-Tuzla corridor. There were probably around 1,500 Mujahideen in my very conservative estimation.
