JANIZARY – Word of The Day, 2 July 2015


jan’·i-zar·y  /ˈjanəˌzerē/ n  1. A member of the Turkish infantry forming the Sultan’s guard between the 14th and 19th centuries.  2. A devoted follower or supporter.  Also sometimes spelled janissary.

1.  Mustafa was the loyal janizary of Islamic State and, following its orders, blew up mosques and with his trusty AK-47,  hosed down the crowds in shopping malls.

2.  Being the janizary of the Grand Mufti, Abu ish-Kibibble took a young bride.  By young we mean she was nine so she was underage.  But only by a year.
