He is surrounded by seven masked fighters armed with heavy machine guns and grenade launchers. He attributes that wave of volunteers to a widely held belief that "Syria is where you go to join the jihad.
He cites a sura from the Koran in support of that argument. He points out that jihad does not necessarily involve joining a large fighting force, and that individuals or groups of up to three fighters can inflict considerable damage if they set their minds to it. In that context, he quotes Chechen field commander Shamil Basayev's observation that "modern technology enables one man to inflict irreparable damage on the infrastructure of the enemy state.
