From Pop to Bang–
Hussein al-Ahmad quits singing to join Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan.
Kuwaiti pop singer Hussein al-Ahmad has decided to put down the microphone and pick up the bomb.
Al-Arabiya and ROP reported:
A retired Kuwaiti superstar singer has recently the Gulf emirate for Afghanistan to join ranks with al-Qaeda and Taliban in fighting foreign troops there, according to a press report published Saturday.
Hussein al-Ahmad, who was until recently one of the Gulf’s most famous pop stars, decided to join “his brother Mujahideen in Afghanistan to support Islam and fight along his fellow Muslims of al-Qaeda”, reported Kuwaiti daily Al-Rai Saturday.
Al-Ahmad has previously told Kuwait’s Al-Rai TV that the reason he decided to quit singing was “a dream” where he saw his “own journey from this world into the Hereafter through death”.
“I’ve seen horrors and terrors I don’t think anybody else have. I thanked Allah for being alive when I woke up and I was grateful for the fact that He has given me a second chance,” the retired singer had said.
“I then informed my family and friends that I would retire from the dark world of sin (singing). Since then, my job has been to warn against arts and their sinning atmosphere.”
The retired singer will soon appear in his new military outfit in Afghanistan, in a video expected soon in a website known to be close to al-Qaeda extremists, according to the paper.
Noticed he bypassed Iraq right next door and went straight to Afghanistan.
…What a waste.
