Mohammed Elomar — an Australian boxer who primarily fought at featherweight and junior lightweight — has a warrant out for his arrest for allegedly joining the militant group known as the Islamic State, or the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, according to News.com.au.

“Elomar can be found on Twitter gleefully holding up the severed heads of two of his enemies as part of the terrorist insurgency in Syria and Iraq,” the article said.

Elomar, 29, fought as a pro largely from 2004 to 2008, then once more in 2013. He went 19-1 with 9 knockouts and 1 no contest, with the lone loss coming because of disqualification due to low blows in a bout against Matt Powell in 2007, according to BoxRec.

His brother, former 130-pound prospect Ahmed Elomar, is facing at least two and a half years behind bars for hitting a police officer with a flagpole during a 2012 protest in Australia, one of many international protests held in response to an infamous video on YouTube, according to The Sydney Morning Herald.

“With time served, Elomar will be eligible for release on March 3, 2016. His maximum sentence is four years and eight months,” the newspaper reported in June.

The 31-year-old turned pro in 2004 and fought through 2010, going 16-1-2 with 9 knockouts.

[QUOTE=check hook]The mistake was going into Iraq for "regime change" in the first place. They deposed a Sunni ruler (in a shi'ite majority country) who acted as a natural counterbalance and enemy to Iran's influence in the region, who are another shi'ite majority, but shi'ite ruled too. A huge t...

[QUOTE=Weebler I]The US needs to get back in there ASAP. Obama screwed up big time removing the troops and generals in a populist move before Iraq was ready to handle their own country. If they're not quelled they're going to be a major threat to Western security.[/QUOTE] The mistake was goin...

[QUOTE=Weebler I]He's not in the US Government and he doesn't appear to be any great fan of the Bush administration. Two amateurs in Boston marathon last year were able to kill and injure scores of innocents and cause the shutdown of a major city at huge cost. Just imagine what prepared and fund...

[QUOTE=Light_Speed]LOL I see you're still buying into that fear mongering by the US government. Reminds me of the days of Cheney and Powell. Look up some statistics about terrorism in the west, it's not a major threat.[/QUOTE] He's not in the US Government and he doesn't appear to be any great f...
