CARIBBEAN 360 – It’s no secret that several Trinidadian Muslims have left the country to join Islamic group ISIS. But in a candid interview, one of them, a sniper in the organization, admitted to killings in his homeland and urged Muslims still living there to wage jihad in the twin-island republic.

Abu Sa’d at-Trinidadi, one of the first three Muslims to leave Trinidad and Tobago to join the jihadist organization, told ISIS magazine Dabiq about why he rejected his family’s Baptist Christian faith and embraced Islam, and even went as far as urging Muslims who live in the twin-island republic to “terrify the disbelievers in their own homes and make their streets run with their blood”.

No dates were given in the interview but at-Trinidadi, whose birth name is Shane Crawford, spoke about his own “jihad endeavour” in his homeland. He admitted that he and a few of his Muslims brothers to took revenge “whenever the disbelievers in Trinidad would kill or harm a Muslim”.

“We would work to accumulate money in order to buy weapons and ammo. . . .We were successful in many operations, and this was only by Allah’s grace. Abu ‘Abdillah, my wife, and I were arrested at one point, but the police weren’t able to make a case against us. We were nonetheless charged for possessing guns and ammunition,” he recalled, adding that his computer and phones were seized and police found the videos, books, and lectures on jihad.
