Abu-Zakariya al-Britani, a British detainee at the Guantanamo Bay Detention Center, is dead after blowing himself up in Iraq in a botched attempt to get to heaven.
Guess who claimed responsibility for the attack . . . yes, ISIS did. The jihadist was praised by the Islamic State for detonating a vehicle loaded with explosives near Mosul where Iraqi troops are currently battling ISIS terrorists for control of the city.
Al-Britani, whose real name is Ronald Fiddler, has fiddled with explosives for the last time. He was a Brit seized by US forces in Afghanistan and sent to Gitmo in 2002. Unfortunately, the Islamic extremist was released in 2004 by the guy who said that "Islam is a religion of peace," former president George W. Bush.
Fiddler, 50, is from Manchester, England first become Jamal al-Harith, but he discovered that Harith colloquially means 'camel snot' in some Middle Eastern villages, so he changed it to Abu-Zakariya al-Britani.
Al-Britani (his friends call him "Boom Boom Abu") entered Syria in 2014, according to a BBC report.
The Islamic State statement didn't say when the bombing occurred or whether anyone was hurt or killed except for Abu, which probably means the suicide mission failed to kill anyone but the idiot carrying it out.
Rest in pieces, Abu. Your 72 camels await you.
