In the recent weeks more and more videos of European Jihadi’s, fighting in Syria, are appearing.
In these three videos a French, Russian and Dutch Jihadi, explain why they are fighting in Syria and urge their brothers in Europe to follow their example.
In the first video we see Abu ‘Abd ar-Rahman al-Faransi, recently killed in Syria, making his plea for Jihad in Syria.
The second video is of an unknown Russian Jihadi, allegedly fighting in the ranks of the Islamic State in Iraq and as-Sham. This utterly weird propaganda video was spread by a high ranking Jihadi of ISIS. But, as the guy is highly nervous; it doesn’t proof to be the best of Jihadi propaganda videos.
In the third one, dating back to May 2013, we witness the Dutch Victor Droste, aka Zakariyah al-Hullandi, explaining why he came to Syria.
