A 32-year-old American has emerged as one of Islamic State’s (Daesh) top leaders, a recent report by Graeme Wood in The Atlantic magazine revealed. What propelled John Georgelas aka Abu Yahya to the top of the jihadist group?

‘A staggering mastery of Islamic law’

Was it poverty that turned him to terror? No, he was born into an upper-middle class family in Texas. Perhaps, it was American foreign policy? No, there is no indication that he was displeased with the 1845 incorporation of the Republic of Texas into the US

It was ideology that drove him into the arms of the IS. Financed by rich Arabs in Texas, Yahya studied Islam. Initially attracted to Sufism, he soon turned to Dhahirism, an “ultraliteralist legal school”. He has a “staggering mastery of Islamic law” and can even compose poems in classical Arabic off the top of his head. This helped him win support within the terror group

‘Why We Hate You & Why We Fight You’
Yahya now produces the glossy IS magazines Dabiq and Rumiyah. The pellucid article titled “Why We Hate You & Why We Fight You” reads like a distillation of every conversation I have ever had with a jihadist, writes Wood

Some liberal journalist would like you to believe that we do what we do because we’re simply monsters… The fact is, even if you were to stop bombing us and usurping our lands, we would continue to hate you because our primary reason for hating you will not cease to exist until you embrace Islam IS’s Dabiq magazine

The Atlantic piece is here, The American Leader Traitor in the Islamic State. We fixed the title.

Among the relevant facts in this lengthy, coyly pro-Islam piece by Graeme Wood is the fact that Yahya Abu Hassan’s jihadi wife was allowed back into the U.S. (as was Hassan although he has since left again) and lives in Texas with their four children.

One can only speculate what she is teaching her children…and if she is receiving taxpayer-funded assistance to do so.

  1. Find him where ever his is in the world and take him out then go find his wife and deport her & the kids from America and do not let them come back.

  2. This guy was my employee when I worked to have him put in fed prison. I see not much has changed with him. Hope he catches a JDAM..

  3. These fools all think they’re God’s chosen ones to judge the world–but they’re complete clueless FOOLS who can’t see past their own selfishness and hatred–totally pathetic FOOLS!!!!!

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
