As you may have heard, last week ISIS militants posted a video online showing American photojournalist James Foley, who had been covering the conflict in Syria as a freelancer for the Global Post, being beheaded by a masked jihadist with a British accent after ransom demands — $100 million Euros according to the CEO of the Global Post — were not met. Now comes word that British authorities believe the murdering jihadist to be Abdel Majed Abdel Bary of West London, better known as a rapper named “L Jinny,” while being known to hostages in the Middle East as “Jihadi John.”
Reports the Daily Mail:
A French prisoner who was held captive by ‘John’ says he was part of a group of British jihadists who call themselves ‘The Beatles’.
According to reports in The Sun newspaper, some of the men have similar voices and even use similar language to that used in the video.
An expert told the Sun that Bary’s voice and speech patterns sounded ‘the same’ as those of the man speaking in the horrific video of Mr Foley’s death.
Bary has previously posted sickening images online of himself posing with the severed heard of a Syria soldier, accompanied by a joke.
Friends say Bary became radicalised after coming into contact with extremists linked to hate preacher Anjem Choudary.
A former friend said: ‘He had the talent – he could have been as big as Dizzee Rascal. He was doing music with huge names in the underground scene.
‘People have got into his head – it’s transformed a talented young guy into a vengeful extremist.’

And here he is in an episode of Warm Up Sessions…
May L Jinny burn in hell and/or be put into a steel cage with Suge Knight if he is indeed the evil dickhead who beheaded James Foley.
