McCain had been calling himself “Duale ThaslaveofAllah.'' His Facebook page says he worked for the nonprofit Dawah-Calling to Allah and studied at San Diego City College.

The San Diego Community College District confirmed he had attended the community college but declined to say more.

McCain was born in Chicago and grew up in Minnesota, according to his Facebook page.

ISIS, short for the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, is seeking to establish a government based on Shariah law.

An ISIS fighter with a British accent cut off the head of American journalist James Foley last week.

    This guy is not only a traitor, he’s an idiot. That’s the best name he could think of “dual, the slave of Allah”. What a real ignorant narcissist and naive to follow a group of extremist that doesn’t care or respect any ideology except extreme violence, especially to the muslim community. HE DESERVED TO DIE THE WAY HE DID….and I agree….he should not be buried in U.S. soil because he is a traitor.

      Well, if he IS buried here, I will be sure to bring my dog to the grave, where my dog can leave his “condolensces.” I shall also “water” the grass around his grave with a bucket of pigs blood as I remember the women and children his group buried alive and the fathers they beheaded..
