James Foley: British Police Hunt Ali G, John The Beatle And Missing Bin Laden Impersonators

by | 21st, August 2014

THE man who murdered James Foley on video is British. Well, say says all the papers. How do they know this? Well, he spoke with a British accent. Don’t bother checking for yourslf, the police says anyone even looking at the Islamic State’s snuff movie “may” be arrested on a terrorism charge.

It didn’t take much for the intolerant, murderous loons to damage our right to free speech.

The Sun explains the nicknames:

THE “Ali G” accent of the jihad Brit who cut off a US captive’s head was being studied today — as sources identified him as a Londoner called John. The hooded monster — who wields a knife in grisly internet footage — is said to be one of three UK citizens dubbed “The Beatles” by fellow fanatics in Syria and Iraq.

So. He’s English?

Another voice expert said it was possible the brute was born here — probably in London.

The Times reports:

The British jihadist who beheaded an American journalist is believed to be a senior Isis militant capable of inspiring followers to wreak havoc on his home soil. The man, who appears to have experience of decapitations, is a prime target for MI5, MI6 and the SAS amid fears that he could kill again after his new-found infamy… The killer, named by a former hostage as “John” and described by David Cameron as likely to be a British citizen, has been linked to a group of four British-Pakistani jailers for the Islamic State (Isis).

In other words: we don’t know who he is.

But maybe he’s putting on the accent to make us think he is British…
