Another doctor, affluent and Western educated, leaves everything to join the Islamic State, blowing up Obama’s and every other Western leader’s delusional narrative about poverty, disaffection and illiteracy driving Muslims to jihad.
I’ll also point out that calling those who oppose jihad terror “racists” is laughable. Islam is not a race. Just ask this blue-eyed doctor.
Herdsmen in Nigeria, rappers in Germany, doctors in Glasgow, chemical engineering students in Canada, heart surgeons in Saudi Arabia, university students in Britain, imams in America and so forth – what brings these wildly different people together? Jihad. From the Sahara to the Kalahari, London to Lisbon, Manhattan to Madrid, Bali to Boston, Tiananmen Square to Thailand, Myanmar to Malaysia, Nairobi to Nigeria ….. no matter what the background, upbringing, schooling, wealth or poverty, color, what have you, it doesn’t matter. The understanding of Islam and jihad is the same, and it is the motive, the incitement to this monstrous war on the West and and the East and all points in between.
If the world were as concerned with the mass slaughter of non-Muslims by jihadists as they are about the fictional narrative of “islamophobia,” we might begin to defeat this enemy of humanity.

A YOUNG Australian doctor has appeared in an Islamic State video urging other medical professionals to travel to the Islamic State stronghold of Raqqa in Syria to join the jihad against the west.
The stylish promotional IS video has not been verified but was circulated on IS-affiliated social media accounts.
The video introduces the “ISHS” — or IS Health Service — and appears to have been filmed in Raqqa in the Raqqa General Hospital.
The video features a number of doctors talking about medical facilities in the IS stronghold.
The Australian doctor introduces himself as Abu Yusuf and says he travelled to Raqqa from Australia to offer his medical services as part of his “jihad for Islam”.
Aussie doctor appears in IS video
“My name is Abu Usef. I’m one of the medical team here. I came from Australia to the Islamic State to live under the khalifah.
“I saw this as part of my Jihad for Islam to help the Muslims in the area that I could, which is the medical field and when I got here while I was very happy that I made the decision and I was a little bit saddened by how long I’d delayed it.
“I wish I’d come sooner.”
Facing the camera in a section of the video titled Pediatrics, he urges other doctors and medical professionals to join the medical team.
He is also shown treating babies in incubators. He says repeatedly that equipment is not the issue for the hospital but the availability of well-trained doctors
“We need the brothers and sisters to come and help us from all around the world. We just need the manpower … to help us grow this.
The Australian doctor is part of the slick video which cynically aims to appeal to “normal, rational” Australians, according to a terrorism expert. Picture: YouTube
“After being here it’s disappointing to think how many fellow Muslim brothers and sisters who are in the medical field; doctors and nurses, physios and dentists are still living in the west and unfortunately here the Muslims are really suffering from not lack of equipment or medicine but lack of qualified medical care.
“So I suppose a message I would want to send out to any brothers and sister still living in the west who are considering coming … we really need your help. Any little thing gives the local people who are truly suffering a lot of benefit.
“Please consider coming, please don’t delay.
“I’ll see you soon”.
Australian National University terrorism expert Clarke Jones confirmed the video’s aunthicity.
“This is certainly legit,” he said.
“It’s appealing with the use of the Australian to others, by showing them any ordinary Australian, in this case, can go across there and live a comfortable life beyond their expectations.
“It’s appealing to normal, rational people within the educated young crowd and it’s not just about fighting now, it’s about going over there and supporting brothers and sisters in the Islamic State.”
Dr Jones said the man broke the mould of those expected to flee Australia to fight.
“People want to say its either or (but) this guy does break the mould and that it appeals to a wide variety of people,” he said.
“If we don’t start to take a more understanding approach to this, which the Islamic State is beginning to have more appeal than Australia, we are going to continue to lose.”
