“Jihadi John” — the barbarian thought to have beheaded American journalist James Foley — is believed to be 23 year-old Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary. The Daily Mail reports that British intelligence agencies identified the suspect after he posted to his Twitter account a grisly picture of himself holding a severed head.
He captioned it ‘Chillin’ with my other homie, or what’s left of him.’
In another picture, captioned ‘Fireworks’, he stands in front of dozens of bags of plastic explosives.
Videos posted to YouTube show Bary, who used the names Lyricist Jinn and L Jinny, show him praising his father [a suspected Islamic terrorist] in rap.
‘Give me the pride and the honor like my father, I swear the day they came and took my dad, I could have killed a cop or two.
‘Imagine then I was only six. Picture what I’d do now with a loaded stick. Like boom bang fine, I’m wishing you were dead. Violate my brothers and I’m filling you with lead.’
The video above is a brief excerpt from one of the rap songs by the alleged killer.
