Interview With Captured Foreign Jihadis in Syria- Must Watch UK

These trash are influenced by UK jihadis.

Sky's Tim Marshall gains rare access to a prison where he finds evidence
that international jihadists are operating in Syria. Interviewing
people who, under different circumstances, might kill you, is a strange
experience. To the soundtrack of multiple rocket launchers and small
arms fire, I met six men who the Syrian authorities told us were
jihadist rebel fighters captured by the army. We were in a Ministry of
Interior prison near Damascus in an area now close to the front lines.
The men, four Syrian, an Iraqi, and a Turk, said they had indeed been in
the jihadist movement fighting President Assad's forces, but now
renounced the armed struggle even though they continued to espouse
Salafist ideology. All are awaiting court appearances. Jamil Us Turk,
Ahmed al Rabido, Hamid Hassan al Attar, Bahar al Bashah, Ali Hussein and
Mahmoud al Ahab said they were happy to be interviewed and had not been
badly treated. At one point I asked the guards to leave, spoke with the
men alone and checked them for obvious signs of mistreatment, which
were not apparent. Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International both
accuse the Syrian regime of routinely torturing prisoners. As far as I
could ascertain, the men were who they said they were. The Turkish man
spoke Turkish, the Iraqi had an Iraqi accent, they displayed religious
knowledge of the sort taught to those with a Salafist mindset. Most of
the rebel militias are not radical jihadists, but in the last few months
there appears to have been a sharp increase in the number of foreign
fighters coming to Syria. The Syrian authorities are keen to promote the
view that they are fighting an al Qaeda type force which partially
explains why, after much pushing, we were allowed rare access into the
jail. Mahmoud al Ahab, who described himself as a Palestinian Syrian,
told me he was in the al Nusra Front which he said was an al Qaeda
group. He had sworn an oath of allegiance to al Nursa but now felt this
was a mistake. Ahmed al Rabido, a 48-year-old Syrian, said he was a
religious leader, a Mufti, in the Free Syrian Army. "I joined because I
wanted to demolish the secular state... I don't believe in this anymore
because the country is being ruined," he said. Bahar al Basah, 35,
another Palestinian Syrian, told me he was influenced by the writings of
Abu Qatada, the radical cleric currently under house arrest in the UK.
The men only became animated when I showed a little knowledge of
Salafist ideology and brought up the works of Islamists such as the
Egyptian Sayyid Qubt.
