Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary has reportedly been identified the ISIS militant who beheaded American journalist James Foley in a video released this week.
Reports over the last several days had indicated that British intelligence forces were focusing in on the 23-year-old former London resident, who had achieved some fame in the UK for his rap career. Sources say that Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary left his family’s upscale home in London last year to join ISIS.
Bary is believed to have traveled to Syria, and recently tweeted a picture of himself holding a severed head.
Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary had a somewhat successful rap career, with some of his songs earning play on BBC radio. In early songs he made references to drug use and violence, as well as the threat of his family being deported to Egypt. His father, Adel Abdul Bary, was extradited from Britain to the United States on charges of terrorism in 2012 and was believed to be a close lieutenant of Osama bin Laden.

If the rapper known as L Jinny is also the executioner known as Jihadi John, should anyone be surprised? In the past two weeks, a knife-wielding, faceless man in black has become perhaps the most notorious Briton on the planet, the protagonist of two real-life snuff movies as he kills James Foley and Steven Sotloff, American journalists.
His aggressive, grandstanding words have been repeated across our airwaves, their Britishness only too obvious, threatening President Obama and other world leaders like a street-corner hoodlum. He does so in the name of his God.
L Jinny, aka Abdel-Majed Abdel-Bary, is the man whose name has been bandied as the killer. Some details match, and some do not. But the modus operandi of the public rap star and the concealed beheader is the same, and can teach us something about the manners that makyth not just this man, but those like him. As we all – Western leaders and peoples alike – ponder what to do with individuals like this, and the threat they pose, there is much to learn.

It has been doing the rounds for a few days on social media - surprised it hadn't been posted here on ATS to be honest, hence why I created the thread.
