300 Western Converts to Islam Captured Fighting in Syria

Experts worry that there will now be a shortage of converts to Islam to do important work like beheading British soldiers in London and writing books about their time working as guards at Gitmo before they saw the dark.

Damascus, 18 June (AKI) – Damascus, 18 June (AKI) – Several hundred westerners including Italians have been captured fighting alongside rebels seeking to overthrow president Bashar al-Assad, government sources told Adnkronos on Tuesday.

“We are holding 300 westerners, of whom six or seven are Italian, according to the information I have. They are all converts to Islam,” the source said.

Converts to Islam are particularly dangerous because they are eager to prove their loyalty and have nothing but Islam in their life anymore.

One of the good things about the Syrian Civil War is that it is diverting the sort of people who would otherwise be killing Westerners.

I never thought I would be cheering on the Syrian government and Russia, but they are truly the lesser of the bad choices here. Syria really needs to take off the kid gloves and unleash the dogs of war on these feral animals.

Mass conversions to Islam are coming to the West.

He did run over a fire hydrant that probably scraped his chassis to hell.

Right on target with that observation.

I don’t mean to sound gory, but my ultralow opinion of Assad would go up a notch or two if he decided to hang the entire lot.

Like you, I'll side with a neutral like Putin over America's enemy in our White House.

They may have another use. Anyone dumb enough to convert to Islam and join a holy war is dumb enough to be flipped. Assad could probably persuade these people to join his cause and prove their loyalty by becoming suicide bombers against the rebels.

Is that your hat-tip to the Lincoln Brigade during the Spanish Civil War—composed of American Communists and assorted clueless pointy-heads from the U.S. and Western Europe, fighting for Stalin's Communist International (Comintern)?

Actually you gave it more detailed thought. I was making a gesture to what Obama is obviously doing by overthrowing secular dictators who kept the Islamists in check. Obama is preparing the way for the Muslim Brotherhood and other transnational terrorists to take over, unite in an attack on Israel and create the Ummah dream of a unification of Islamists against all others.

No, the first mass conversions will start voluntarily. A mass media creature will convert first and millions will follow. Next will come a choice for you; i.e. convert at mass or lose your head by way of a butcher knife. One must grasp the spiritual sickness of Western Society.

Even better, some guy just gave me (positive) ebay feedback with a comment that he obviously didn’t intend for ebay....

These people need to be shot. I’m not ordinarily in favor of shooting prisoners but these people know us too well. They are us except with a defective gene or two. They are not just inbred morons yelling slogans. These are very dangerous people and for our own survival they such be exterminated.

Something tells me the Assad regime isn’t going to take kindly to these kinds of people. So do converts get the 27 vigins as well or do they start at a lower number and have to work up to it?
