Andrew Bolt: Not a soldier for Australia but for Islam

For an army which has deployed in Iraq, Afghanistan and Somalia, a worrying example of conflicting loyalties:

A WESTERN Sydney man who died fighting with rebels in Syria has been revealed to be an Australian soldier who went absent without leave more than three years ago.

Caner Temel, 22, is believed to have become radicalised and died fighting with jihadists in January… The rogue combat engineer is the first soldier from a western country to have been killed in the Syrian civil war.

He died while fighting for the extremist group the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant against more moderate rebels…

Mr Temel’s death came days after the killing of Sydney man Yusuf Ali and his wife Amira near Aleppo. It was reported they were killed during fighting between rebel factions.

Last September, a Melbourne man became the first Australian to die as a suicide bomber in Syria after blowing himself up at a checkpoint.

Conflicting loyalties? Not at all! Temel’s loyalties were solely to the jihad.
