Initially snagged off the Afghan battlefield in 2004 ostensibly for being Usama bin Laden’s counter-intelligence chief and one of the main Taliban strategists against American and Coalition Forces, Mullah Achmed Ibn al-Goatshankar has since been known officially as Detainee #139.
But now the former jihaadi strongman just wants to be known as a “child of Allah” according to his lawyer Shlomo Shtosherstein of the Manhattan law firm of Shmekeleberg, Kurvetaub and Shtosherstein. As quoted by the Iranian News Service, Goatshankar’s lawyers are pressing for his release due to his jailhouse conversion … or “come to Mohammed” moment.
Only this past weekend has the news been released of a former Guantanamo Bay detainee beeing held by the Israeli government for the last three years after he crossed the Jordanian border into the West Bank to train terrorists how to construct and employ biological weapons against Israel, as reported by the Jewish Press on Nov. 18, 2013 and the Jerusalem Post on Nov. 17, 2013.
Reportedly of Palestinian origin, Samer Abed al-Barak was shipped off to the Guantanamo Bay Detention Facility by the American government in 2003 after he was arrested for active participation on terrorist activities only to be released to Jordan three months after his initial incarceration.
According to the Israeli Ministry of Justice, the thirty nine-year old terrorist is formally a member of al-Qaeda, having joined the world-wide jihadist organization in 2001.
