Parents of Young Jihadi Terror Tourists Shocked at Syria Disappearance

Liam Deacon, Breitbart, April 8, 2015

Britain’s latest ISIS terror recruit is a resident of Britain’s most racially-segregated town and the brother of this country’s youngest convicted terrorist.

Labour’s junior justice minister Shahid Malik dismissed any link, saying, “Lightning stuck twice.”

Hassan Munshi, 17, from the Islamic enclave of Savile Town in Dewsbury is probably already in Syria. He is the grandson of prominent local Islamic scholar Yakub Munshi, who was reportedly the driving force behind the creation of Dewsbury’s first sharia court.

The boy and a jihadi neighbor and childhood friend told their parents they were going on a school trip over the Easter break, but are thought to have taken a flight to a Turkish resort near the border with Syria.

In a joint statement the two families said: “These were just two ordinary Yorkshire lads who enjoyed the things that all young people enjoy at their age.” They added, “naturally, we are in a state of profound shock and are trying to come to terms with the predicament we find ourselves in.”

In 2008 Hassan’s older brother, Hammad Munshi, was just 15 when he joined a terror cell believed to have been plotting against the royal family. He was found to have downloaded instructions for bomb making and was stashing notes about martyrdom fantasies under his bed. He returned to the family home four years ago and is said to be “reformed.”

All are from Savile Town in Dewsbury, which is 98.7% Asian and has been described as the most segregated area of Britain. A Deobandi school of Islam that was founded in colonial India, specifically to oppose western culture, dominates the town. Mohammad Sidique Khan, the leader of the group responsible for the 7 July 2005 bombings in London, grew up in the area.

Savile is host to one of the largest mosques in the country where Hassan’s grandfather is reportedly a senior figure. {snip}

    “Shocked” at the fact your kid went to Syria?

    Why, because you thought he was going to Iraq instead?

      They’re just yapping on about what they know the leftists want to hear.

  • Britain’s latest ISIS terror recruit is a resident of Britain’s most racially-segregated town and the brother of this country’s youngest convicted terrorist.

    If segregation causes non-whites so “segregated” to be bad or go bad, then why do not the whites who live in white “segregated” areas run off and join ISIS?

    ‘These were just two ordinary Yorkshire lads… ‘ Muslims are never normal and never Yorkshire lads.

      And to think the family was on the dole for life as refugees.

        You think British authorities will reduce their subsidy…?

    “These were just two ordinary Yorkshire lads . . . .”

    Wrong! Muslims have no association with Britain. They are not “ordinary Yorkshire lads”, they are muslim terrorists who don’t belong in Britain or anywhere else in Europe and other Westernized nations.

    “They added, “naturally, we are in a state of profound shock and are trying to come to terms with the predicament we find ourselves in.”

    Naturally the rest of us aren’t surprised at all. Wherever there are muslims, crime and terrorism are never far behind.

    Hassan & Hammad, with names like that do they really expect us to believe that they are just a couple of ordinary Yorkshire lads who probably enjoy a pint with Charlie & Fred down at the local pub? I suppose they use the term “lads” to make them sound more British.

    Then further along in the article we see they come from a small town (In Yorkshire) which is 98% Asian. Sorry, forget the newspeak, but that really means 98% Pakistani Muslims. AND, has the largest Mosque in Britain.

    “Ordinary Yorkshire lads” Just how much longer do we have to put up with all these lies.

    One day, there just be someone out there who will have some real guts, start telling the truth about Islam, condemn Islam for what it is and hopefully that same person will be the next President of the USA or the next Prime Minister of the UK.

    I’m sure these fine young lads dindu nuffin at all.

    Asian in Britian doesnt mean the same thing as in the U.S.

    He’s as gruesome-looking as the average black. And has the same kind of attitude probably, if the look on his ugly face is any indication of how he feels.

    He and his fellow dregs should have emigrated to Sub-Saharan Africa where they would be closer to their own kind.

    Jolly old England is getting just what it deserves, and boy are they going to be surprised when the EU crashes after the domino effect of Greece falling, and food riots begin in earnest, because those old Yorkshire boys will be brandishing their scimitars looking for white weenies to hack up.

    “Ordinary Yorkshire Lads.” I don’t know whether to laugh because of the preposterousness of that statement or cry because it may just be true in today’s Britain.

    • I’d cry. Whilst it is not typical to have a town that is 98% (!!!) non-indigenous, there are a lot of places that are pushing 25 to 35%. The sad fact is that territory belongs to those who occupy and hold it. They are holding it and occupying it. Therefore, unfortunately, they can indeed be described as “ordinary Yorkshire lads”.

      Most of the others are limp-wristed liberals and the terminally brainwashed, or hedonists pre-occupied with their own little life dramas. I think the last real Yorkshire generation is now in their late 30s or early 40s.

    There are too many Muslim parents “shocked” when they learned their children going to the war zone. However, they don’t even have the ability to reflect on themselves and on their death cult – Islam. As long as they don’t discard this cult, we expect to see more shock from Muslim parents.

  • ghettovalley

    Muslims, both the “Asians” and the prislam blacks, disgust me and do not belong anywhere near us or our countries.
