TRINIDAD EXPRESS – They come from all walks of life, united by religion.

A scholar, a lifeguard, a boxer, a doctor, an engineer, a lawyer.

These are some of the jobs that Trinidadian Muslims held before joining the cause of the Islamic State.

Continuing investigations by the Sunday Express into what prompted an emigration of about 100 Muslims from Trinidad to Syria and Iraq to support a jihad being waged by the Islamic State (ISIS) reveal contrary profiles of the men who left this country.

The Sunday Express has already reported that two men detained during the state of emergency (SoE) in October 2011—Shane Crawford and Milton John Algernon, also known as Fareed Mustapha—are in Syria.

  1. They got out of the Caucasian frying pan and jumped head first into the Arabic fire!!! Never be fooled by this ideology that claim to have your cause at heart. It has always been and remain Arabic both in identity and outlook. Yes many of practices of Islam is African in origin. This is a reflection of where its originators where at the time of its birth, Egypt. Of course so is Christianity and Judaism. We all know neither Christianity nor Judaism claim to belong to the Black man except of course Islam the youngest of these three religions. The fact is these brothers fail to see themselves and admit they are actually looking at themselves. They will recognise every other race, culture creed and class but Africa. The truth is it is there. Search for it and you will find. Stop being fooled by those who tell you as an African you have no history and so no culture. As the cradle of civilisation African and Africa has a history, a culture and religion just like any other culture.

      • ISIS is about world domination by conquest; it will not pump money to develop any society. It demolishes societies to establish its brand of Islam.

    • We need to understand the psychology which makes particularly our youth disaffected so much so that groups such as ISIS are attractive to them. There are many demotivating situations in St Lucia, Africa and the West that even the well-educated, comfortably off people would walk away from for a risk filled life with more promise of death than glory. If they die in fighting they would be rewarded in the afterlife. They have nothing to lose not even their life. And that makes them dangerous.

      So, hold the jubilation, St Lucia is not immune to radicalization

  2. The thing is is there any truth to this .... could just be another way of spreading shit and a reason for them to invade our lives wanting to know more about our people and our governments giving up these information to so called countries that claim to care about the world

  3. Those idiots are on borrowed time. I can tell what's in their future. I see a drone firing a Hellfire missile at them. Maybe they might be lucky and get struck by Mr. Putin 1000 lb bomb. Either way, they will all be very dead.

  4. IS the Trinidadian Government really going to allow these people to Return and Retain the Citizenship they turn their backs on? and go abroad to kill people that did no harm to them? Make NO mistake these people are been trained to return and Kill Trinidadians and others. They WANT to kill. They want to kill another human being and get away with it by claiming religious persecution or whatever. Allah means God. SO which god gave them permission to Murder and Rape? NOT mine that's for sure.

    • You make a valid point about returning nationals from their ISIS mission. Recently, the British government TOOK OUT (euphemism for KILLED) some of their nationals with drones whilst they were in Syria. Thus avoiding de-radicalizing and reintegrating them into the British society! Once someone’s mind has been poisoned by an ideology and they have engaged in killings, you can never know if they have been successfully rehabilitated and are no longer a threat to society.

  5. When people’s world is like that of a goldfish bowl, limiting in prospect and horizon, then along comes an ideological group like ISIS or Boko Haram with promises a new world order and a place in that new order for anyone willing to carry out atrocities to establish it. Some youth can be dazzled by this fantasy even though this new order has little to offer civilization. It is intolerant to differences and run roughshod over cultures to stamp its vacuous brand. If such a state becomes established, the brotherhood united by a brand of Islam which is seemingly colour and racially blind, what stops it reverting to historical type in treating its black members as outcasts and slaves!

    Why sacrifice your life to be shackled to a failed ideology that cannot rise and should not be allowed to rise! At least the simplicity and hardship of one’s goldfish world existence is relatively harmonious and free!

  6. Trust Trinis to engage in stupidity follow fashion! The three black fellas will have a shock when they realise ISIS do not like black people. And if they think that the Middle East violence is anything compared to what they know in the Caribbean then good luck. And please dont come back when you all go.

  8. I would have expected them to have some more sense since they are from the region, but my goodness..........how pathetic

    • Funny! once they have conquered one country (in this case Trinidad), they will look to conquor new territory, and who knows, St. Lucia. I am seeing too many muslims around the place. Who knows how many sleeping cells we have in the country?

      And yes I know the stupid people who want others to believe that they are smart and of course our ever vote seeking politicians will detest this statement.

      But let's be honest. Have you ever seen or heard a radicalized Muslem, killing people to establish a caliphate coming from a christian church?

      No Muslims no Muslim Extrimist....Keep them out of our country and we will be safe.
