Italian 'jihadist' killed in Syria

Jun 18 2013, 9:36am CDT | by

Rome, June 18 (IANS/AKI) A young Italian who converted to Islam and joined rebels seeking to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has been killed in Syria, an Italian daily said.

Rome, June 18 (IANS/AKI) A young Italian who converted to Islam and joined rebels seeking to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has been killed in Syria, an Italian daily said.

Citing intelligence and interior ministry sources, the Il Giornale daily named the youth as 20-year-old Giuliano Delnevo from the northwestern port city of Genoa.

He took the name Ibrahim on converting to Islam, but his family had no connection with the Muslim faith, the daily said.

The daily did not say when or where in Syria Delnevo was killed, or for which rebel group he was fighting.

It only said his body was identified from his Italian passport.

Italy's foreign ministry said it could not confirm Delnevo's presence in Syria.

Delnevo converted to Islam four years ago and recently posted online a photo of Muslim fundamentalist Adbd Allah Yusf al-Azzam, who inspired Osama bin Laden.

7 Things to Consider Before Choosing Sides in the Middle East Conflict

Jul 28 2014 1:07pm CDT | Source: Politics - The Huffington Post

Are you "pro-Israel" or "pro-Palestine"? It isn't even noon yet as I write this, and I've already been accused of being both. These terms intrigue me because they directly speak to the doggedly tribal nature of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. You don't hear of too many other countries being universally spoken of this way. Why these two? Both Israelis and Pale ...

Why More Israelis Should Die

Jul 28 2014 10:04am CDT | Source: Big Government

To remedy the simply awful tragedy of not enough Israelis dying as a result of Hamas rocket attacks, something must be done! Send in NATO, bomb an old people’s home, send in UN inspectors to dismantle the Iron Dome systems! It simply is not fair! Such would be the twisted logic that the anti-Israeli crowd are peddling at the moment. Supposed moral outrage points to the heavy casualties suffered by Gazans, and asks, 'Why can't it be more tragic for ...

The Islamic State, formerly the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), has had months to establish its jihadist rule of terror in Raqqa, Syria, its "capital." As The New York Times reports, ISIS is stealing from banks and redistributing taxes into social welfare and infrastructure, but has been set back by a lack of vocational education. The New York Times sent an unnamed reporter to Raqqa, to experience first-hand what it is to live unde ...

These governments claim that the MB's rhetoric, espousing peaceful democratic reform, is disingenuous, and that it is actually committed to violently overthrowing the Gulf's monarchies. At the heart ...
