A German rapper who converted to Islam and joined jihadist rebels fighting to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad has been injured in an air strike, a jihadist group said on Monday.

The jihadist, formerly known as Deso Dogg, was hiding at an anti-regime fighter's house that "was hit by an air strike and helicopter shelling", said a statement posted on Facebook by a group that identified itself as the People of Abraham.

As a result of the strikes, Deso Dogg or "Abu Talha al-Almani and several other brothers were injured, while several Muslim children were killed", the statement said.

He was turning his life around. Had his music career and everything,

Oh wait. Rap isn’t music.

Deso Dogg, was hiding at an anti-regime fighter's house that "was hit by an air strike and helicopter shelling",

Don't know what this does for his street cred. How many times "getting shot" does receiving an air strike and helicopter shelling count for?

Austrian is easy! Watch: "G-day! Fair dinkum! Gonna see a man about a wallaby."

I've memorized all the Outback Steakhouse commercials, so I'm pretty fluent.

This is pretty much the same trajectory John Lennon Doo Doo Lindh Walker the American Taliban took.

When you think about it (if you absolutely can’t avoid it!) the first rapper was German, around 1930 or so, until May 1945.

Getting hit in an air strike should boost record sales. Beats getting shot with a .22 in the street cred department.

You forgot your "/sarc" (I hope, sometimes it hard to tell)

But I wasn't making a sharp, bitter or cutting remark, so I don't think the /sarc tag really applies and most browsers don't support the /joke tag, so what's a body to do?

You weren't?

Really?

Then you should know that Austrian is different from Australian, which is what the people from Australia call themselves and is where wallabies and "Crocodile Dundee" are from.

And "Austrian' isn't a language but a variety of German, comparable to "American" is to English.

"G-day!

My local community college has a course in Austrian this semester, but it's too late to enroll so I won't link the schedule. In the meantime:

It's a fun language, in the same language family as Australian (as should be obvious.)

Classes and books can really only take you so far. I’ve gained my mastery of languages by immersing myself in the culture. Take austrian, for example - I bought myself some lederhosen and moved to Canberra for a couple of weeks. I speak the language like a native now.

Pardon my ‘Smartass reply”.

Got distracted when reading your second post and failed to completely comprehend it.

Brain fart....

Please accept my apology....:-)

You don’t have anything to apologize for. Text-based communication leaves lots of opportunities for misunderstandings. I usually use the /s tag to avoid any confusion, but sometimes I get lazy.

Thank you for clearing things up.
