Ordinary folks – businessmen… students turned into suicide bombers in Iraq… to “go for the kill”…. sacrificing their careers and futures! WHat made them do such things? There are “Cyber-cemetries of the Mujahideens”
Ahmad Sa’id al-Ghamidi wanted to be a doctor. The 20-year-old had enrolled at the University of Khartoum in Sudan and his family had given him money for fees and living expenses, enough to last him until he had his degree. But in the end, that money didn’t go for rent or for books on how to heal the sick. Al-Ghamidi used that money to kill.
Incited by the propaganda of al-Qaida and Iraqi insurgents, the young man from Saudi Arabia threw his future away. He gave up his studies and, as one Internet site gushes, he “withdrew all his money … went to Iraq … and became the hero of a unique operation in Mosul.”
The “operation” was a suicide bombing. Al-Ghamidi blew himself up in the middle of a mess tent in this northern Iraqi city. He killed 22 people, including 18 Americans.
