MIM: Become a Muslim and wage jihad. The connection between the religion and radicalism is obvious yet we hear repeated denials by politicians and government officials that violence has nothing to do with the religion of Islam . Islam's violence is rooted in the Koran and passages calling for jihad against the unbelievers can be found in the index of faithful translations found in most American libraries especially those from Saudi Arabia.

An American man was reportedly killed over the weekend fighting for the Islamic State (also known as ISIS) in Syria, NBC News reports.
The Free Syrian Army found the body of 33-year-old Douglas McAuthur McCain after a fight with ISIS, with $800 cash in his pocket and an American passport.
U.S. officials and family members further confirmed the basketball lover and rapper's death.
The San Diego native appears to have crossed into Syria a few months ago, according to posts on his personal Twitter.
Friends and family have now started posting on his Facebook, expressing condolences to his wife and daughter.
McCain was born in southern California in January 1981, but eventually moved with his family to the Twin Cities area of Minnesota where he attended Robbinsdale Cooper High School in New Hope and played on the basketball team.
Old friends at the mostly-white school described McCain as a carefree teen who wasn't very religious.
'He was a goofball in high school,' a classmate told NBC. 'Doug was a fun guy to be around. Played basketball, joked a lot, had a small sense of humor. Got along with most … Wasn't the best athlete, but liked to play."
After graduating in 1999, he stayed in Minnesota for some time according to his criminal record.
He was arrested in 2000, at the age of 19, for disorderly conduct and then again in 2006 for obstruction. He was convicted on both charges.
According to his Twitter, he converted to Islam around 2004 and his online posts become much more fervent.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2734979/American-born-rapper-33-killed-fighting-ISIS-Syria.html
