Kurds Assist ISIS Fighter

Sometimes you really do get what you ask for.

Kurdish grocer Cuneyt Hemo remembers the moment he crossed paths with a jihadist Islamic State (IS) prisoner inside the besieged Syrian town of Kobane.

"He begged us to kill him so he could go to paradise and be rewarded," Hemo told AFP, in a rare glimpse of life inside the town which has been fought over street by street for nearly a month.

The bearded jihadist explained at length to his captors how he had come to Kobane to "deliver it from the kuffar" (the infidels).

"We tried in vain to help him find reason. But he did not want to know anything," said Hemo.

"He said again and again that we were the infidel and he wanted to go to paradise to find the 40 women who had been promised to him," he added.

So the next day the Kurds shot him in the head as requested.

All's well that ends well I always say.

Hat Tip: Dan.
