That ISIS Guy Who Promised to Raise an Islamic State Flag Over the White House? He’s Dead.
Hell just got a little more crowded. The notorious jihadist who said that he would fly an Islamic State flag over the White House will, sadly, never get that opportunity… because he’s dead.
The Islamic State’s Press Officer Abu Mosa became a figure of international notoriety overnight when he took on a starring role in a captivating Vice News documentary about ISIS in Syria.
“Don’t be cowards and attack us with drones,” he said. “Instead, send us your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq. We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House.”
Instead of doing that, according to the U.S. State Department, he’s just going to be dead.
Mosa was reportedly killed near the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa in Syria, where much of Vice’s documentary was shot. His death comes as Islamic State forces mount a long-awaited assault on the Tabqa Syrian military airbase.
… Mosa was a true zealot. His commitment to the cause of fundamentalist Islamic jihad took precedence over every other aspect of his life.
“I don’t return home for pleasure,” Mosa told Vice’s cameras. “The family, honestly, is the least important thing. There is a higher purpose.”
“No one would defend Muslims if we all sat at home with the family,” he continued.
His family probably didn’t mind that he wasn’t around much. And while it sadly appears that our own troops didn’t get the pleasure of sending this cretin where he belongs, the end result is all that really matters.
