American Convert Douglas McCain Dies Fighting for ISIS in Syria

Douglas McCain was raised as a Christian, but no one was concerned when he converted to Islam. He recently traveled to Syria to wage jihad in the name of Allah, as the Qur'an commands (see 9:29, 9:73, 9:111, 9:123, etc.). How many more converts need to die waging jihad before politicians and the media will start telling people the truth about Islam?

(CNN) — An American named Douglas McCain was killed last weekend in Syria, where he was fighting for ISIS, two U.S. officials told CNN.

The man's uncle, Ken McCain, said that his nephew had gone to fight as a jihadi and that the U.S. State Department told the family Monday about the death.

He died in a battle between rival extremist groups in the suburbs of Aleppo, Syria's once-bustling commercial capital and largest city, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a British-based group that monitors the conflict.

Like the U.S. officials, the group described McCain as an ISIS fighter and said he was killed in a battle with the al-Nusra Front, an al Qaeda-linked organization that the U.S. government has blacklisted as a foreign terror organization.

According to his uncle, Douglas McCain's journey to Syria began sometime after he converted several years ago from Christianity to Islam.

The family wasn't alarmed by his conversion, but they became aware of Facebook posts sympathetic to ISIS, an Islamist terror group, when he traveled to what they believed to be Turkey.

U.S. counterterrorism investigators had been looking into Douglas McCain's activities for some time before his death, one U.S. official said.

He was among a list of Americans who are believed to have joined militant groups and who would be stopped and subjected to additional scrutiny if he traveled, according to the official. (Continue Reading.)

Hey David - did you know ONE THOUSAND FOUR HUNDRED CHILDREN were raped by Pakistani Muslims in Rotherham, England. I don't want you to do one solitary post on this issue, I want you to do 1400, failing that 10 will suffice; looking at the different angles: complicit authorities, media etc. what enables Muslims to so lose their humanity to be able tom perpetrate such obscene crimes on children etc., etc., please give it your FULL attention.

No. Wait. Converted from Christianity to Islam? Something tells me it's not up to only the news media and a handful of politicians to tell the truth about Islam. Our Pastors, our Laypeople, our Sunday-School teachers, our Seminary Professors - the ENTIRE Body of Christ MUST step up to the plate and SPEAK THE UNMITIGATED REALITY about the misogynist, racist, hate-filled and demonic ideology of the pseudo-prophet.

Con-freaking-verted from Christianity to Islam? We've got to start covering a WHOLE LOT MORE than just the Old-Testament truths and the Good News of Christ Jesus. Our young people AND adults need to be WAKENED - big time - lest more folk wander off into the darkness of Shariah.

Heaven HELP us! We've waited far too long...

Raised as a Christian, and no one was concerned when he converted to Islam? Really? He rejects Christ, the only way to the Father, choosing instead to serve a false Babylonian god, and no believers were concerned? Forget for a minute the problem with fighting for Jihad; He chose damnation and eternal judgment instead of salvation and life. And no believers were concerned? This says much concerning the awareness of believers regarding Allah and Islam, and shows a woeful lack of concern for his eternal soul. Very problematic.
