Now who’s real glad this guy finally revealed who he really is and is, no longer with healthcare in the UK?
Maybe discrimination is a tool that can use to excise out the ones more prone to jihad, like the squeezing of pus from a pimple. Here’s to this jackal’s never coming back.
NHS treated me like a beggar, says doctor who became a jihadi: Extremist ranted about the NHS and ‘abandoning his dignity’ shortly before getting a job at a hospital
- Doctor Issam Abuanza, 37, deserted his family to join Islamic State in Syria
- Worked in Britain for seven years but had said medics treated like beggars
- Complained that foreign medics had to abandon dignity to find hospital job
- Palestinian-born doctor made rant shortly before he arrived in UK in 2006
Issam Abuanza, 37, who worked in Britain for seven years before going to Syria, complained that foreign medics had to abandon their dignity to get a job
A doctor who deserted his family to join Islamic State ranted about the NHS, saying medics were treated like beggars.
Issam Abuanza, 37, who worked in Britain for seven years before going to Syria, complained that foreign medics had to abandon their dignity to find a hospital posting.
The Palestinian-born doctor, who is married with two young children, made the rant shortly before he arrived here in 2006.
He told overseas graduates sitting tests on their English language and clinical skills that they needed anti-psychotic drugs to work in the NHS.
In his comments in April 2006 on a bulletin board he added that getting a job was difficult because ‘very now and then you are begging the human resources or the consultant to give you a locum position’.
He warned colleagues to leave the following back home: ‘Your dignity because you are a beggar here; your career, no progress as either locum or clinical observer, you won’t write more than that in your CV; your future, there isn’t any; and your family, no doubt.’
Despite his outburst, Abuanza was able to secure a position at Glan Clwyd Hospital in Rhyl, North Wales, where he worked between May 2007 and July 2009.
He also worked at Scarborough Hospital, where he posted an online video of himself praying in the on-call room.
Later he moved with his family to Sheffield, where he is reported to have been combining shifts as a registrar with running an online company selling kaftan dresses.
He wrote that 100 per cent of the profits of his business were going to Syria – raising fears the cash may have funded jihadis.
Abuanza, who comes from a family of doctors and dentists, is thought to be the first NHS clinician to join IS.
He trained as a doctor in Iraq in 2002 before gaining British citizenship. The medic’s postings on social media reveal how he became increasingly radicalised.
