An American Islamic jihadist fighting in Somalia has published an online autobiography that includes fond memories of Canada.
In it, according to the Toronto Star, Hammami says he has no regrets about his life but misses his family and Western pleasures such as hot wings,
Chinese food and Tim Hortons coffee.
"There are Tim Horten's (sic) fast-food joints all over the place and people speak from their nose," Hammami wrote, recalling his first impressions
after crossing the U.S.-Canada border.
"We used to have a blast asking the Canadians we met: "How 'bout that hockey eh? Wanna have a coffee at Tim Horten's or should I get ya a Fresca?'
"Everything is the same, but slightly different. Dollars are called 'Loonies' and a two dollar coin is a 'Toonie.' That became important on one
occasion because I think I got badgered in the airport once for not knowing what a bloody 'Loonie' is.
"But, eventually I got used to the accent and I started to have an addiction to Tim Horten's coffee."
Guess he doesn't like America or Starbucks though.
IMO, just goes to show you that these "Islamic Jihadists" are just like you and I; people of the earth... They simply just don't like their people and
families being killed.
