Oz jihadist charged for issuing 'how-to survive' holy war list on Facebook

ANI  |  sydney 

An Australian has been charged under anti-terrorist laws for issuing a how-to list on for how young men can engage in holy war without getting killed or ending up in Guantanamo Bay.

Zaky Mallah had travelled to Syria and lived with the rebels engaged in the bloody civil war against Muslim hardliner President Bashar al-Assad.

He has posted some top tips for joining jihad and experiencing life on the frontline, news.com.au reports.

According to the report, Mallah, now 29, said that ASIO once claimed he was at risk of becoming Australia's first suicide bomber.

At the age of 20, he was arrested and charged for making a jihad-style video after ASIO refused him a passport.

He spent two years in the high maximum security Multi Purpose Unit at Goulburn prison before being acquitted.

According to the report, Mallah said that young people should go to Syria and engage in jihad to experience the freedom fight taken up against El Assad by members of the Free Syrian Army (FSA).
