Terrorists Have ‘Tyrion Lannister’ On The Team; Meet ‘Little Jihadi John’

In the real world, Tyrion has a counterpart. He is fighting war in Syria. Some say alongside the ISIS, some say with the al-Qaeda.

Tyrion Lannister is one of the well-loved characters in “Game of Thrones.” He has the best lines, the best intentions and also has a great characterization even in the book. “The Imp” is also intelligent and is very sensitive.

In the real world, Tyrion has a counterpart. He is fighting war in Syria. Some say alongside the ISIS, some say with the al-Qaeda. Whatever side he’s on, people could only hope he is far from Tyrion Lannister.

In the terrorist world, he is now known as Jihadi “Little” John, after British Jihadi John who beheaded James Foley and other hostages. According to Leith Abou Fadel, editor-in-chief of Al-masdar News, the dwarf fighter is also known as “Abu Ahmad Al-Chihuahua.” He had earned the fearsome reputation for biting enemies.

“I tried to find out more about him but the information was limited,” Abou Fadel told the Daily StarAQ. “All we know is that he is a member of the Syrian al-Qaida group Jabhat Al-Nusra,” he added. Some say he fights with the ISIS however.

In a related report from the Daily Mail, he was described as not taller than his machine gun. Fadel said the pictures of Jihadi Little John were shared to him by a friend.

Fadel has a knack of finding interesting characters within the rebels. A photo shared on his Twitter account shows a fighter who resembles Popeye. “Abu Popeye Al-Sailor was killed in Deir Ezzor,” Fadel tweeted, adding “should have stuck to his spinach diet.”

In another photo, a fighter was shown wearing a jihab to pose as a woman. “Do ISIS idiots really believe they look like women in a hijab? Look at that schnoz,” he asked.
