GAZA CITY (Ma'an) - A Palestinian family in Gaza has received news that their son, Mahmoud Abu Rideh, died a few days ago in a US bombing in Afghanistan.

The man's family, from Bani Sheila - a town east of Khan Younis - heard from friends of their son that Mahmoud was with a group of 'mujahideen' before the airstrike.

Abu Rideh had moved to the UK in 1995 and received a residence permit in November 1998. Some of his family members are British nationals.

After the 9/11 attacks, Abu Rideh was detained along with 17 others and he was banned from meeting his family. Ma'an reported at the time that Abu Rideh was detained.

His conditions were so severe that he apparently attempted to kill himself three times.

The heartbreak of war - & if he had stayed in Palestine - Israel would have been trying to kill him for being young & male.

The Rideh family's loss is unfortunate and regrettable. But since he was with the mujaheddin in Afghanistan, he was part of al Qaida and at war with the United States. Al Qaida killed 3000 Americans on 9/11, almost all civilians. He decided to become a soldier for al Qaida. When organizations or countries make war on us, we make war back.

I have to say that my concern is for the people living in gaza who are not trying to kill anyone ...the people who just want to have a normal life. Most people from afghanistan seem to want the same thing. Sad to see a plaestinian meddling in the affairs and taking up arms in another country.
