A SCOTTISH man who joined terrorist organisation Isis last year and appeared in a recruitment video has now made his own - a bizarre medley of dance songs mixed with lyrics calling for jihad.

Abdul Raqib Amin, who joined the militant group last summer, posted the clip on social media.

He has also written a series of rants about American foreign policy, describing George Bush as a “terrorist”, and calling the 9/11 attacks “smart economics”.

Called ‘Jihad Song (EDM Remix)’, the video takes Isis hymns and places them over a techno beat.

There is also a voiceover from the Isis recruitment video ‘There is no life without jihad’, in which Amin featured soon after he joining the group’s ranks.

The 26-year-old, who grew up in Aberdeen, appeared in the propaganda video last June, alongside two other British students.

In his jihadi remix, Amin uses six nasheeds, or hymns, which try to entice Muslims to join Isis.

There are occasional shouts of “Allahu Akbar” in the more than five-minute long clip, with music titled Unicorn Zombie Apocalypse providing the music.

The video features just one still, showing Amin in the year-old propaganda video, with “Abu Bara Beats Jihadicii” written across the image.

Amid more than 80 comments on the video, Amin attacks America for starting the Iraq war and appears proud of the fact terrorists did not use their own planes in the Twin Towers attack in New York.

Posted just one week ago, Amin writes: “George Bush is considered to be a terrorist by the Iraqi people.

“Us terrorists used 19 people to kill 3,000 of yours. We didn’t even use our own plane. Now that is smart economics.

“You idiots even left part of your military equipment in Iraq, which Isis now uses.

“You also gave weapons and training to rebel groups in Syria, which ended up joining Isis.

“Your foreign policy in the Middle East is one of a kind. In addition, the Taliban was basically created by the US in order to fight a proxy war against Russia in Afghanistan.

“What happened next? They became radicals under the name al Qaida. I can’t see the Twin Towers in the New York skyline any more. I wonder why?”

The Aberdeen FC fan also wrote: “The cure for the depression is jihad.”

On his Google account it is also possible to see comments he has made on videos on YouTube.

Each one spoofs Isis, including a comedy sketch suggesting how the terrorist group can improve its image to teenage girls to help their recruitment process.

Other videos show characters from children’s cartoon Spongebob Squarepants shouting “Allahu Akbar” while parachuting and holding an Isis flag, and pranks where people shout the phrase at unsuspecting passers-by.

Another clip features a video game where the military is fighting terrorists.

In each comment section, Amin has simply written “I rate 9/11.”

The posts confirm Amin, who attended Aberdeen mosque, is still alive 12 months after getting on a plane at Gatwick to join the terrorist group.

One family friend said relatives had cut off all contact with Amin because of the shame he had brought on not just them but the entire community where he grew up.
