Syria - British Jew Fighting Alongside Kurds In Syria Leaves Hasidic Tags Of "Light" On Liberated Buildings
Syria - In an effort to bring what he calls, “some light into darkness,” British-born Jewish soldier Batn El Ghoul, aka Timothy Paul Jacobs Wordsworth, has been fighting alongside the Kurdish YPG (People’s Protection Units) against ISIS inside Syria for six months, and along with it tagging each liberated house and building with Breslov Hasidic slogans channeling the name of Rabbi Nachman.
YNETNEWS.com (http://bit.ly/1fRvcNJ) reports that the 37 year-old Jacobs-Wordsworth is the grandson of a Holocaust survivor who later converted to Christianity, but his mother remained a Zionist and instilled in him from a young age a deep love for Israel and a never ending commitment to remembering the relatives he lost at the hands of the Nazis.
Jacobs-Wordsworth has developed quite a social media following, routinely posting pictures to his Facebook account of liberated homes bearing the slogan, “Na Na Nachman.”
Following what he calls his “lifelong dream” to become an Israeli citizen, Jacobs-Wordsworth says that after fighting as a Brit for NATO forces in Bosnia and Kosovo during the 1990s, he traveled to Israel and instantly “fell in love” with Breslov Hasidism.
Jacobs-Wordsworth said his initial request for citizenship was rejected in 2005 when his visa expired, and that he is also aware that the law of return prevents him from making allyah due to his Christian upbringing, but he plans to return to Israel once his 10-year entrance ban expires and continue to pursue his dream.
