Mohamad Khweis, a former ISIS trainee who fled the terrorist organization is now telling police and reporters more about why he quit – and some of it goes in the surprising-not-surprising category.
One reason? The ISIS camp did not allow tobacco smoking.
“Our daily life was basically prayer, eating, and learning about the religion,” Khweis confessed, “for about 8 hours (a day).”
“I found it very, very difficult to live there,” he continued.
The defector, whom authorities now say went from having a job as a bus driver in America to potentially training as a suicide bomber for ISIS, also had less shallow reasons for quitting the vile, murderous war-band.
“I didn’t agree with their ideology. That’s when I wanted to escape,” he told a reporter from the Middle East.
