The age old adage goes “revenge is a dish best served cold.” Wahida Mohamed disagrees. Wahida Mohamed believes revenge is a dish best served in a boiling pot… With the heads from decapitated ISIS fighters.
Wahida Mohamed, better known as Um Hanadi, is a self-described “housewife.” But instead of preparing dinner, cleaning the toilet, and creating crafts and selling them on Etsy, Wahidi spends her time kicking ass and taking names.
The 39-year-old Iraqi has waged a personal war against the Islamic State and for good reason. Her first husband was killed in action. Her second husband was killed by ISIS. Her three brothers were killed by ISIS. Her father was killed by ISIS. Her sheep, dogs and birds were killed by ISIS.
Um Hanadi has taken the fight to Daesh.
“I began fighting the terrorists in 2004, working with Iraqi security forces and the coalition,” she says.
Now she leads a force of approximately 70 men in the area of Shirqat, a town 50 miles south of Mosul.
In a culture that rarely allows women on the battlefield, let alone be commanders, everyone has taken notice of Um Hanadi, especially the Islamic State.
“I received threats from the top leadership of ISIS, including from Abu Bakr (al-Baghdadi) himself,” she says, referring to ISIS’s head fuck in charge.
“I’m at the top of their most wanted list,” Um Hanadi boasts, “even more than the Prime Minister.”
Daesh has attempted to assassinate Um Hanadi six times and she counts them down, “2006, 2009, 2010, three car bombs in 2013 and in 2014.”
“I have shrapnel in my head and legs, and my ribs were broken,” the warrior states. “But all that didn’t stop me from fighting.”
“I fought them. I beheaded them,” she says. “I cooked their heads, I burned their bodies.” She even posts the photos of her victims on her Facebook page. One pic shows her proudly hoisting up a freshly severed head (Beats your photos of the six shots of tequila that you posted to your Facebook.). Another pic showed two severed heads in a cooking pot. Try finding that recipe on Pinterest. Then there is another photo of Um Hanadi standing among partially-burned dead human beings, which must be rather odd. You’re scrolling on Facebook, you see somebody’s ahi tuna salad dinner, pics from a 5-year-old’s birthday and then oh wow there’s a charred corpse.
Wahida Mohamed doesn’t seem to be on Facebook anymore. Hmm. I can’t imagine why?
