American traitor and ex convict converts to islam

This is the story of American ex convict and islamic terroir Russell Dennison in a nutshell. Russell gets arrested for selling drugs, gets sent to prison where he converts to islam. Russell eventually moves to Syria where he becomes a member of a terrorist organization linked to al qaeda and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. One day bombs rain down upon Russell and he dies.

I have no sympathy for Russell because he chose to join an organization that used homicide bombers to detonate car bombs which killed innocent people. This was Russell path after converting to islam.

Sad. Enlightening. Touching. Respectful. Well done.

I don't have more words. That is all.

A**********

A have listened to the about 20 times it's a bit of a double edge sword on one you have a guy who.turned Muslim some say he's an extremist,because he was devout,so if I went to the chapel every day would that make me an extremist ? A think.the government (usa) did not no the who!e Muslim thimg,but he joined ISIS so was he brainwashed let me know what your thoughts are 10/10
