Bismillaah ir Rahmaan ir Rahiim In The Name of Allaah The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful As salaamu alaykum The Peace Be Upon You (all).


I am posting this story for whatever it is worth. I've read/heard many stories over the past few months which did not ring true. I would like to trust in the following story, and believe that what I've read in the past, and viewed in video's was someones idea of a sick joke. Please scroll down to the last story on this page.

Prior to reading the story I looked for reviews about the book, but found none.
all the information about the author are in Finnish. Apparently he is from Finland.
a Google translation of his wiki biography reads:

Quote:
Hussein Al-Maadid (b. 1973 ) is an Iraqi journalist who has written a book about their experiences Abu Ghaibin in prison. [1]
Al-Maadid was born in Haditha and studied at the University of Baghdad journalist. He worked as a journalist , Saddam Hussein's son-owned newspaper in Babylon . [2] Al-Maadid wrote in the beginning of politics, but got into trouble for criticizing Hussein's regime and moved to write about art and sport. war in Iraq has begun, he worked in the Iraqi television as a war correspondent and subsequently made ​​the occupation of a job on NBC for , AFP for and UP : a. [3]

16 November 2003 [1] , the Al-Maadid arrested and subsequently imprisoned in Abu Ghaibin prison on terrorism charges. He was in prison for almost a year, and he was humiliated repeatedly by other prisoners in the. [2] released from prison, al-Maadid required to sign an agreement in which he gave up the right to sue the US government to court. [1]

Released from prison, al-Maadid returned a journalist and was revealed by the Hadithan massacre . [3] In 2007, the Al-Maadid fled Iraq due to the pressure. [1] He currently lives in Finland, where he became a quota refugee. [2] In Finland, he wrote the book 361 days in hell which tells the Al-Maadid experiences in
Google Translate




While the story is presenting a gentle side of ISIS I do not see it as supporting ISIS. there are a minimum of 2 sides to every story.
This is just the first chapter of the story, it would be fair to at least read the whole story before arriving at any conclusions.

I read the story. Good information and shocking.

I was not aware such a high percentage of Muslims were trying to smuggle cigarettes. The woman concealing 3 cartons under her robe demonstrates that women, via their attire, has turned them into mules. By traveling with child she was probably hoping she would be less likely to be searched.

Customs agents in other countries take smuggling contraband far more seriously. They employ people that do not let you off with a verbal warning.

When traveling into a nation with contraband you place all occupants of the vehicle at risk. Further, driver and vehicle itself can be impounded and sold off.

A more through search by the drivers would have been prudent

Further the one driver could have seen that a man had trimmed his long eye brows. He could have advised him to wait till they grow back before traveling.

When you are the driver, you carry a responsibility to all passengers.

Shocking
1. Muslims smoking
2. Muslims willing to smuggle cigarettes
3. Employing women as mules.
4. Using children to divert officials.
5. Driver with 0 responsibility
6. Officials not following standard custom laws at borders.

"someone who was entering the land of caliphate"

"the American crusaders and their dogs the apostates and the safavid's"

"the army of Caliphate that is facing the crusaders in this religious war that Muslims fight against the groups of Kufr"






Not supporting ISIS huh? See the OP just got you to sympathize with ISIS without realizing it.

Not sympathizing. Just biding my time to read the entire thing before forming an opinion.
At he moment I am assuming the Author entered the "Caliphate" with a naive attitude.
I am hoping the remainder of the story will reflect his reasons for returning to Finland rather than remaining in the Islamic State

Bismillaah ir Rahmaan ir Rahiim As salaamu alaykum. I wrote to the editor of New Trend, asking him when the posted story would be continued. His response was, "we can't ask for it" and that when they receive it they will post it. So it may be a while before there is a continuation of the story.

Hummm. What kind of thinking is this? I just became fed up, with watching groups of people(?), having their head sawed off with knives. And, watching someone inside of a cage, set afire. Trick photography? You tell me!
