Meet The Wacky Oregon Folk Singer Traveling To Syria To Serenade ISIS In Hopes They’ll StopScreen Shot 2016-01-14 at 4.39.56 PM
His name is James Twyman, of Portland, Oregon and he is soon headed to ISIS controlled territory to play a concert he hopes will convert these savages.
He calls himself the “Peace Troubadour” and claims that his songs that mix prayers from various faiths into songs, will convince ISIS fighters who hear it to lay down their weapons and become peaceful.
He plans to travel on Jan.20th, first to Italy and then to Israel, where he will meet up with someone near the Syrian boarder who will take him to ISIS territory.
“It’s going to be pretty powerful. When people come together and focus on something in a positive way…there’s scientific evidence that it can change things for the better.”
The State Department has warned Twyman how bad of an idea this really is, but he is undeterred. He has pulled stunts like this in the past, having played shows in Bosnia and Syria a few years ago.
From Fox News:
An Oregon folk singer plans to leave next week to serenade the Islamic State, and he intends to bring the black-clad barbarians a prayerful message of peace — despite a warning from the State Department that his life could be in danger.
James Twyman, of Portland, Ore., told FoxNews.com he feels a “calling” and believes he can soften the hearts of the Islamist army known for beheading Westerners, throwing gays off of buildings and summarily executing innocent women and children.
“It’s going to be pretty powerful,” Twyman said, referring to his plan to have those attending and others around the world sing and pray for peace at the same time. “When people come
together and focus on something in a positive way…there’s scientific evidence that it can change things for the better.”
