“I wish I’d come sooner,” says blue-eyed Australian Muslim doctor who is the face of new propaganda campaign for terror group Islamic State (ISIS) in Syria… and he urges others to join him
An Australian-accented Muslim doctor who has joined ISIS is promoting the Islamic State’s launch of its own healthcare service in Syria.
UK Daily Mail (h/t Adrian G) The propaganda video shows a man with an Australian accent who calls himself ‘Abu Yusuf’ and calls on foreign doctors to travel to the ISIS stronghold Raqqa to help launch the ISHS (the Islamic State Health Service), which appears to be mimicking Britain’s National Health Service.
The vision shows Yusuf handling babies in a maternity ward while wearing western-style blue surgical scrubs and a stethoscope inside the paediatric ward of a Syrian hospital. ‘My name is Abu Yusuf. I made hijrah from Australia to the Islamic State to live under the khilafah,’ he says.
‘I saw this as part of my jihad for Islam, to help the Muslim Ummah (community) in the area that I could which is the medical field.’ He claims to be sad he delayed traveling to Syria for so long.
‘It is disappointing to think how many fellow Muslims brothers and sisters in the medical field, who are doctors and nurses, physios, who are still living in the West and unfortunately the Muslims living here are suffering, not necessary from a lack of equipment or medicine but a mainly a lack of qualified medical care.’
Yusuf urges foreign Muslims with medical training to come forward and join the latest caliphate initiative. ‘We really need your help. It is not the equipment that we are lacking, it is truly just the staff. Inshallah see you soon.’
But that’s not all. Here’s more about this Islamopig:
