Video: American Jihadist Abdullah Rashid Talks Afghanistan
Abdullah Rashid, also known as Clement Hampton-El, is seen here discussing jihad in a 1988 talk taped from his hospital bed, soon after he stepped on a land mine while fighting the Soviets in Afghanistan.
Rashid's story is one of many American jihadists featured in the new book Jihad Joe: Americans Who Go To War In The Name Of Islam by Intelwire's J.M. Berger. The book, which will be released in May, is available for pre-order now at Amazon.com
The man behind the camera for this recording is believed to be El Sayyid Nosair, another jihadist from the New York area, who was arrested in 1990 for assassinating radical Jewish leader Meir Kahane.
I'll be posting more relevant videos as the book's release date approaches.
