Aussie Islamic State Nurse Is Begging To Come Home, Promises Not To Stab Anyone
An Australian man who left the country to join Islamic State in Syria is now begging to be allowed to come back after seeing 'rivers of blood flow'.
Mahir Absar Alam flew to the Middle East in 2014 to join the terrorist organisation but he insists he was just a nurse and didn't take part in any of the atrocities the group is known for.
After spending several years in the Caliphate, he wants to come home but obviously Australian officials aren't having it.
Alam has told the ABC, he'll do whatever it takes, saying: "I've seen rivers of blood flow, I've seen...innocent women and children killed for nothing but going shopping, nothing but sitting at home trying to feed their family.
"I'm willing to do literally anything to come back to Oz right now. I've been willing to come back for a long time but it's just been very difficult to come back.

"People need to understand that we didn't rape, we didn't kill, I didn't set anyone on fire.
"We're not that majority that's going to come stab someone with a knife; we're not going to do anything horrible like that."
The 26-year-old added that he was once reprimanded for downloading movies and TV shows like Game of Thrones. Alam said the morality police smashed his 'beloved' hard drive, which only fuelled his desire to return to our shores.
"We just want to go back home, even stay with our parents, I don't even want to go outside the house," he said.
"Even if they take me to Antarctica to live there, I just want to be as far away from here as possible."
