Guess being married to a jihadi isn’t the best decision. But then again, did she have much of a choice? Typically in that culture a woman doesn’t. Check it out.
The ex-wife of ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has described the world’s most wanted terrorist as a ‘normal family man’ who ‘loved their children’ but spoke only to give orders.
Saja al-Dulaimi told how she met and married who she thought was a university lecturer, only to discover seven years later he was ‘the most dangerous man in the world.’
Lifting the lid on what she described as their ‘shallow’ and unhappy marriage, al-Dulaimi told how al-Baghdadi had a ‘mysterious personality’ and she dared not have discussions with him.
‘I didn’t love him,’ she told Swedish newspaper Expressen. ‘He was an enigmatic person. You couldn’t have a discussion or hold a normal conversation with him … He just asked about things and told me to fetch things. He gave orders, nothing more.’
Al-Dulaimi told how al-Baghdadi would disappear for days at a time but she had no suspicions of his involvement in the Syrian resistance while they were together.
‘He was a normal family man,’ she added. ‘How he could become emir of the most dangerous terrorist organization in the world is a mystery.’
