“In a Facebook messages [sic] to an MPR reporter, Muhumed wrote ‘I give up this worldly life for Allah’ and ‘Allah loves those who fight for his cause.’ A picture posted on the social network showed Muhumed carrying a Koran in one hand and a rifle in the other.” He gave his life for Allah and was carrying a Qur’an, but remember: this has nothing to do with Islam.
A second American killed fighting with the Islamic State group in Syria has been identified as Abdirahmaan Muhumed, of Minneapolis, two sources told Fox News late Wednesday.
KMSP-TV in Minneapolis reported that Muhumed was killed in the same battle as Douglas McArthur McCain, who grew up outside Minneapolis in the town of New Hope and most recently lived in San Diego. The State Department confirmed McCain’s death earlier this week, but spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Wednesday that the U.S. has no independent confirmation of the second American’s death. “We’re looking into it,” she said.
