Net closes on 'Jihadi John' as London pair probed

NHS doctor from East London may hold the key to identifying the jihadi who beheaded James Foley.

An NHS doctor from east London who was previously accused of kidnapping Western journalists in Syria may hold the key to identifying the jihadi who beheaded James Foley, intelligence sources have disclosed. Shajul Islam was arrested and charged with kidnapping a British journalist, John Cantlie, in 2012 but was released after his trial collapsed when Mr Cantlie was unable to give evidence.

He had always protested his innocence, saying he went to Syria to use his medical skills to treat victims of the civil war. His brother Razul, 21, also travelled to Syria and is believed to be fighting with the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isil), the terrorist group that murdered Mr Foley

Razul Islam is understood to be on a list of suspected British Jihadists whom the security services are comparing with the footage of Mr Foley’s killer, a British man known as “John” described as the leader of a British cell of jihadists known as “The Beatles”.

A former MI6 chief said the “long arm of justice” was closing in on “John” as the SAS was put on standby to capture him.

SAS was put on standby to capture him.

Would rather they kill him, wrap him in pig skin and let the dogs eat him.

What is it about being an NHS doctor that is appealing to these terrorists? Remember the whole failed-subway bombing-attempted Glasgow airport attack? NHS doctors.

Is this “John” an Arab Muslim raised in Britain or a real Englishman?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but *I* was under the impression that the SAS/SBS, like our own special operations groups, aren't into the "live capture" thing so much. Mr. "John" should be afraid, very afraid, at this point...

It appears to be the former. I can see in one of the posed pics with J. Foley that the skin on his arm appears to be a shade of brown.

I like dogs. Can’t feed a subhuman to dogs. Maybe sharks.. thing is these subhumans aren’t afraid of death. But I believe they must die a slow & painful death.

All the best hunters always make these kinds of announcements in the press. Everybody knows jihadis don’t read or watch the news.

ISIUSA - American converts will behead Americans on American soil.

(from)The Quranic Concept of War1 JOSEPH C. MYERS

Brohi places jihad in the context of communal if not imperial obligation; both controversial formulations:

When a believer sees that someone is trying to obstruct another believer from travel- ing the road that leads to God, spirit of Jehad requires that such a man who is impos- ing obstacles should be prevented from doing so and the obstacles placed by him should also be removed, so that mankind may be freely able to negotiate its own path that leads to Heaven.” To do otherwise, “by not striving to clear or straighten the path we [Muslims] become passive spectators of the counter-initiatory forces imposing a blockade in the way of those who mean to keep their faith with God.

This viewpoint appears to reflect the classic, collective duty within jihad doctrine, to defend the Islamic community from threats—the concept of defensive ji- had. Brohi is saying much more than that; however, he is attempting to delineate the duty—the proactive duty—to clear the path for Islam. It is necessary not only to defend the individual believer if he is being hindered in his faith, but also to remove the obsta- cles of those counter-initiatory forces hindering his Islamic development. This begs the question of what is actually meant by the initiatory forces. The answer is clear to Brohi; the force of initiative is Islam and its Muslim members. “It is the duty of a be- liever to carry forward the Message of God and to bring it to notice of his fellow-men in handsome ways. But if someone attempts to obstruct him from doing so he is entitled as a matter of defense, to retaliate.”

If I were in the jihadist group known as The Beatles, I would prefer to be Ringo or George. They're still living. A bad omen being "John". He was the first Beatle to die...

Rationality is not a hallmark of children of the devil. He has taken such captive to do his will which, at bottom is simply....MURDER!
