Video shows smiling American bomber in Syria

BEIRUT (AP) — An al-Qaida-linked group fighting in Syria has released video of the first American to carry out a suicide attack in the country's civil war, showing him smiling and saying he looked forward to going to heaven.

The Nusra Front released the new video late Friday showing American citizen Moner Mohammad Abu-Salha, 22, with other fighters before the May 25 attack that targeted several army positions at the same time. It said two of the other three suicide attackers in the assault in the government-held northwestern city of Idlib were from foreign countries, including one who was identified as being from the Maldives.

Abu-Salha appears smiling in the video and speaks in broken Arabic.

"I want to rest in the afterlife, in heaven. There is nothing here and the heart is not resting," Abu-Salha says. "Heaven is better. When people die they either go to heaven or hell. There is happiness beyond explanation."

The video, released by Nusra Front's media arm, al-Manara al-Baydha, was posted on jihadi websites. It corresponded with Associated Press reporting about the attack and Abu-Salha.

Opposition forces previously identified the American who carried out the bombing as Abu Hurayra al-Amriki and said he was a U.S. citizen. The name al-Amriki means "the American" in Arabic.

It's unknown how many people were killed in the bombing. Opposition rebels with the Nusra Front said Abu-Salha's truck was laden with 16 tons of explosives to tear down the al-Fanar restaurant, a gathering site for Syrian troops. The other suicide attackers targeted nearby army positions.

Abu-Salha grew up in Florida and attended several colleges before dropping out and moving abroad.

If he thinks he can murder his way into heaven, he is in for a big surprise.

He isn’t really an American or he would not be doing this. He is a fanatic terrorist.

American citizen Moner Mohammad Abu-Salha

I'll take a giant leap here and call him a former citizen.

Same as the London Tube Bombers:

They were crazy about fish & chips, couldn’t get enough of “football”, enjoyed clubbing…

And then they killed everybody.

A second-generation muslim extremist, just like the Fort Hood jihadist (I refuse to type his name, may he rot in hell forever when they finally get around to snuffing his sorry a$$). I am offended that the media are calling this creep an American. He is not on of US. Islam’s sick, seventh-century philosophy is not compatible with the values of the USA.

Abu Hurayra al-Amriki (”the American Douchebag) is in for a surprise. Ginger muzzies don’t have souls.

Reminds me of a joke. The suicide bomber goes to the afterlife, and is immediately set upon by 72 vicious demons who proceed to beat, torture and rape him. He screams, “This isn’t supposed to happen! Where are my 72 virgins??” And Satan chuckled and said, “All of these demons are female. And I never promised you that the virgins would be human. Enjoy your eternity.”

Christianity, Judaism, and other truly peaceful world religions have been reluctant, it seems, to state the truth about Islamic aggression, but will not be able to be politically correct about it for much longer. In my humble experience the vast majority of Muslims are peaceful, normal, loving people who don’t want Sharia law and couldn’t conceive of ‘honor’ killings, but there is a cancer growing in Islam and to ignore it is very, very dangerous.

This camel turd may be a U.S. citizen but he is NOT AN AMERICAN. American is a way of life. U.S. citizen is a piece of paper given to potential voters by politicians.

It all makes perfect sense. The Koran permits them to act like their enemies, use guile to lure their enemies to complacency until their enemy is unsuspecting. Then they strike.

Murderous death cult. It also permits liberties with infidel women and to enjoy the the customs is the infidels. They are given money to live among the infidels who they surveil for future attack.

Murderous death cult.

You don’t understand that their concept of heaven is different from yours.
