Australia: Young Muslim Woman Takes Islam More Seriously, Travels To Syria, Dies For “Allah”
Islam. It’s driven by death, followed by hell …
Revelation 6:8, “And I looked, and behold a [chlōros – green] horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts [thērion – savage, brutal, bestial men] of the earth…”

News.com.au – “A MEMORIAL service has been held at a western Sydney mosque for slain Muslim woman Amira Karroum, and her husband Yusuf Ali.
Ms Karroum’s sister Rose requested the Masjid Noor mosque in Granville hold the service, last night, for worshippers to mourn the couple who were killed in Syria late last week.
Both Ms Karroum and Mr Ali were worshippers at the mosque before Mr Ali moved to Syria mid-last year.
Relatives today said arrangements were still being made to fly the couples’ bodies back to Australia for burial.
Pictured clad in a black burqa, Karroum bore no resemblance to the fresh-faced student from one of the country’s most prestigious Anglican schools when she died in a bullet-ridden house in Syria last week.
The 22-year-old had left her western Sydney home just days before Christmas, telling her family she was heading to Denmark to holiday with friends and then do some humanitarian work.
But on Saturday morning, Department of Foreign Affairs officials broke the news to Karroum’s father Mohamad and mother Honor Deane their daughter and her Muslim husband, Yusuf Ali, had died in the war-torn country, the latest victims of the conflict that has been raging since 2011.
Gold Coast-based Mr Karroum, who runs a kebab shop in Broadwater, collapsed with a heart attack after hearing the devastating news.
Amira Karroum and her husband were killed inside a house near the city of Aleppo, ground zero of the war near the border with Turkey, last Thursday, possibly by members of the Free Syrian Army, which is fighting government troops and other factions of the rebel movement trying to oust President Bashar al-Assad.
When she finished school five years ago, before moving to Granville in Sydney’s western suburbs, Karroum showed no hint of being the radical Muslim she would become…
Karl Karroum said his half-sister was always a Muslim, despite her Anglican education.
‘She was born a Muslim, so was her sister Rose. Their mum isn’t Muslim, but our dad is,’ he said.
‘She went to that school because it was the best education, and an all-girls’ school… it suited our faith.’
He said Karroum did not wear a burqua or niqab, traditional Muslim dress for women, until a few years ago.
‘She started wearing it once she studied her religion more as an adult …'” Read more.
Jihad For Beginners: Westerners Are Fighting For Al-Qaeda In Syria – “While Westerners make up about 10% of the foreign fighters in Syria, according to counterterrorism analysts, European and U.S. officials have raised the alarm about increasing numbers of their citizens taking up the fight. Most join al-Qaeda-affiliated groups like ISIS, which are dominated by seasoned jihadis from South Asia, North Africa and the Persian Gulf. The fear, say concerned officials, is that when fighters return home, they bring with them battlefield skills and extremist ideologies, or worse — intent to do violence in their home countries. Andrew Parker, head of the U.K.’s domestic intelligence service, MI5, said in a parliamentary hearing last week that British citizens in ‘the low hundreds’ had been going to Syria to fight with al-Qaeda. The danger, he said, is when al-Qaeda elements in Syria ‘meet British citizens who are willing to engage in terrorism, and they task them to do so back at home, where they have higher impact.’ While al-Qaeda might be focusing on Assad at the moment, the group is already discussing taking the fight beyond Syria’s borders …” Read more.
