Muslims trained for Islamic State jihad by playing paintball

We have seen this before. Hamas-linked CAIR employee Randall Todd “Ismail” Royer was part of a group of Virginia Muslims who trained for jihad by playing paintball a few years ago. Anyone who might look with suspicion on such activity would, of course, be accused of “Islamophobia.”
“Isil sympathisers ‘trained’ for Jihad at Solihull paintballing centre,” by Martin Evans, Telegraph, December 15, 2016:
A bricklayer who told friends he wanted to die fighting for Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isil) underwent “training” for battle at a paintballing centre in Solihull, it can be revealed.
Humza Ali, 20, posed for photographs in military fatigues, alongside fellow Isil sympathisers, including a friend of the Brussels bombing suspect, Mohamed Abrini.
He was convicted of terrorism offences after a trial heard how he had made several attempts to join Isil, even though one of his efforts was foiled because his mother had confiscated his passport.
Ali was pictured beside a military vehile attending a “bonding session” at the Delta Force paintballing in Hockley Heath, Solihull in June 2014.
Other members of the group included Mohamed Ali Ahmed, who last week was jailed for eight years after being convicted of handing over £3,000 to Abrini, who was dubbed the Man in the Hat after being linked to the Brussels aiport bombing.
Also taking part were Gabriel Rasmus, 29, who was jailed for four years at the Old Bailey last month after being arrested en route to Syria and Abelatif Gaini, who is thought to be fighting for Isil in the Middle East.
The men were pictured making the single-fingered Isil salute as innocent members of the public sat close by completely unaware.
Ali from the Hodgehill area of Birmingham had expressed a desire to join Isil more than two years ago when he was secretly telling an associate that he wanted to “fight until I die” in Syria.
But his travel plans were foiled when it emerged that his mother had confiscated his passport.
In January 2015 he managed to travel to Istanbul via Scotland, Belfast and Dublin, but was sent back to Britain by the Turkish authorities….
