BBC and SKY News Broadcast Jihad John Supporter: Defending ISIS beheader as a ‘beautiful, kind young man’ 

Now you can begin to understand how I was banned from the UK. We can’t get into the country, let alone on the air, but these savage killers are given uninterrupted time to spread their poison.


How can we win?

“The Jihadi John apologists:

“Islamic campaigner who today defended ISIS executioner as a ‘beautiful, kind young man’ was filmed calling for jihad outside U.S Embassy.

By Martin Robinson for MailOnline, 26 February 2015

A video has surfaced of the Muslim activist who described ISIS executioner Jihadi John as ‘a beautiful man’ supporting Jihad at an anti-US rally in London.
Asim Qureshi, leader of campaign group CAGE, was filmed urging protesters to ‘support the jihad of our brothers and sisters’ in Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine and Chechnya.

Earlier today Qureshi, who helped to name ISIS militant Jihadi John as west London student Mohammed Emwazi, caused outrage by saying the murderer was ‘beautiful’ adding that he ‘wouldn’t hurt a fly’.

Speaking while close to tears at a press conference this afternoon, he blamed MI5 for

He says: ‘When we see the example of our brothers and sisters fighting in Chechnya, Iraq, Palestine, Kashmir, Afghanistan, then we know where the example lies.

‘When we see Hezbollah defeating the armies of Israel, we know where the solution is and where the victory lies.

‘We know that it is incumbent upon all of us, to support the Jihad of our brothers and sisters in these countries when they are facing the oppression of the West.

He also revealed that he’d been in regular contact with Emwazi before he left for Syria

Defence: Asim Qureshi, research director at the campaign group CAGE, described Mohammed Emwazi, who is believed to be Jihadi John, as ‘extremely kind’ and blamed MI5 for his radicalisation
Qureshi stands alone on a stage in the 54 second clip, shot at the height of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars in 2006.
London School of Economics graduate Qureshi worked for CAGE at the time of his passionate speech, then known as CAGE Prisoners.

The organisation claims to ‘strive for a world free from oppression and injustice’, ‘working to empower communities impacted by the War on Terror.’

However, the video footage, posted on YouTube, now raises questions about Qureshi, who alongside former control order detainee Cerie Bullivant tried to pin the blame for Mohammed Emwazi’s radicalisation on the British Government.

Earlier today Qureshi was branded an ISIS sympathiser as he appeared to launch a defence of Emwazi and his barbaric crimes.

He said: ‘When are we going to finally learn that when we treat people as if they’re outsiders, they are going to feel like outsiders and they will look for belonging elsewhere.’

'If he's a "beautiful, kind man", why is he killing innocent...
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2970521/Outrage-group-blames-MI5-radicalising-extremely-kind-Jihadi-John-fled-Syria-kill-people-ISIS.html?ito=embedded

And in a second video, in which Qureshi is quizzed by Julian Assange on his view of Sharia law, in particular stoning, he said: ‘I agree with Islamic concepts of how we practice our punishments.’

Asked if he believes in the use of the death penalty, he added: ‘From an Islamic perspective, yes. As long as all the due process elements are met.’

In the wake of Emwazi’s unmasking as the world’s most wanted man, CAGE yesterday released a statement entitled ‘Jihadi John: ‘Radicalised’ By Britain’.
CAGE SPOKESMAN WALKS OFF LIVE SKY NEWS INTERVIEW
A Cage spokesman walked off a Sky News interview live on air after being asked if he condemned the actions of Jihadi John.

Cerie Bullivant accused interviewer Kay Burley of asking him ‘inherently xenophobic’ questions, to which she replied: ‘Nonsense, get over yourself.’

Off he goes: Mr Bullivant accused Kay Burley of asking him ‘inherently xenophobic’ questions
He claimed that the security services in Britain have ‘time and again harassed people and pushed them , and that has played a part in the radicalisation of this man’.

Mr Bullivant – who spent two years on a control order designed for terrorist suspects, but was an innocent man – was then asked by Burley: ‘Do you condemn his actions’
But he replied, before walking off: ‘I’ve already said… I’m sorry, I’m not answering that question, that’s a ridiculous question, I’ve already gone through this and dealt with it.’

After he walked off screen, Burley paused before looking at the camera and smiling.
The release stated that Emwazi ‘desperately wanted to use the system to change his situation, but the system ultimately rejected him,’ a view later echoed on CAGE’s press conference, which was broadcast live on both BBC and Sky News.

Qureshi then used the statement to criticise the British security services, arguing that counter-terror measures turned young Muslims into extremists.
Haras Rafiq, managing director of the anti-radicalisation think-tank the Quilliam Foundation, told Newsweek that CAGE’s accusation that Britain was to blame for Emwazi’s radicalisation was ‘rubbish’.
He said: ‘It is not anybody else’s fault. It’s not the British or Kuwaitis fault. It is his fault and the people who radicalised him. He is a cold-hearted killer.’

‘If you look at [CAGE’s] raison d’être, they are there to defend these kind of people. There has been evidence that these guys are sympathetic to this type of ideology.’

Qureshi criticised the British security services, arguing that counter-terror measures turned young Muslims into extremists

In posts made on Twitter, Quilliam co-founder and chairman Maajid Nawaz, also blasted CAGE, hinting that Qureshi was a supporter of controversial speaker, Haitham Haddad.
Emails released by CAGE today revealed how  MI5 repeatedly tried to recruit Mohammed Emwazi as an informant and put him on a terror watchlist to stop him leaving Britain.

Emwazi is believed to have become known to the security services in 2009 when he was accused of trying to fight with Somali terror group Al-Shabaab in east Africa.

The British citizen, who was born in Kuwait and moved to the UK aged six, flew to Tanzania with two friends after he graduated from the University of Westminster claiming he was going on safari.
But he was arrested as soon as he touched down in capital Dar es Salaam and deported by Tanzanian’s officials.

He flew back to Britain via Amsterdam and told a friend MI5 were waiting for him at Schiphol Airport and tried to recruit him to share information on extremists, Emwazi told a confidant.
Emwazi claimed that an MI5 agent called Nick accused him of trying to go to Somalia to fight for Al Shabaab and said:  ‘Listen Mohammed: You’ve got the whole world in front of you; you’re 21 years old; you just finished Uni – why don’t you work for us?’.

 The Jihadi John suspect turned down the offer and claims he was told: ‘You’re going to

have a lot of trouble …you’re going to be known…you’re going to be followed…life will be harder for you.’
Emwazi claimed in emails to Qureshi that he was repeatedly approached by the security services over the course of the following year but he said he refused to co-operate and denied he had any links to terrorism.


KUWAIT, BRITAIN AND TANZANIA: TRAVELS AND TIMELINE OF EMWAZI
1988: Born in Kuwait
c1994: Moved to Britain aged six, where he grew up in Queen’s Park, west London
2009: Graduated from University of Westminster in computer programming
May 2009: Flies to Tanzania for ‘planned safari’ but is detained by police in Dar es Salaam. Eventually deported but he is allegedly accused by MI5 of trying to reach Somalia, en route in Amsterdam
Autumn 2009: Returns to Britain but soon moves back to Kuwait and finds work at a computer firm
June 2010: Counter-terrorism police detain him upon his return to London to finalise his wedding plans, and he is not allowed to return
2012: Emwazi heads for Syria and joins ISIS

Hostages who have survived being held by ISIS in Syria and Iraq have said that Jihadi John is a man ‘obsessed’ with Somalia and would make them watch Al-Shabaab videos while in captivity.

In June 2010 counter-terrorism officers, linked to the security services and Scotland Yard, allegedly arrested him as he tried to fly to Kuwait. He was fingerprinted and searched, it was said, and put on a terror watchlist preventing him from leaving Britain.

In an email to Mr Qureshi he said: ‘I feel like a prisoner, only not in a cage, in London. A person imprisoned & controlled by security service men, stopping me from living my new life in my birthplace & country, Kuwait’.

Another friend said that Emwazi later tried to travel to Saudi Arabia to teach English in 2012 but again stopped from leaving.

He was ‘desperate’ to leave Britain and ‘was ready to exhaust every single kind of avenue within the machinery of the state to bring a change for his personal situation’, Mr Qureshi said.

Mr Qureshi said he last heard from him that year and said the Jihadi John supect believed ‘actions were taken to criminalize him and he had no way to do something against these actions’.
Soon afterwards he vanished and is believed to have travelled to Syria, where he may now be ISIS’ figurehead.

Jihadi JOHN Identified

Post  Admin on Thu 26 Feb 2015, 3:05 pm


‘Jihadi John’: Islamic State killer is identified as Londoner Mohammed Emwazi


LONDON — The world knows him as “Jihadi John,” the masked man with a British accent who has beheaded several hostages held by the Islamic State and who taunts audiences in videos circulated widely online.


But his real name, according to friends and others familiar with his case, is Mohammed Emwazi, a Briton from a well-to-do family who grew up in West London and graduated from college with a degree in computer programming. He is believed to have traveled to Syria around 2012 and to have later joined the Islamic State, the group whose barbarity he has come to symbolize.


“I have no doubt that Mohammed is Jihadi John,” said one of Emwazi’s close friends who identified him in an interview with The Washington Post. “He was like a brother to me. . . . I am sure it is him.”

[View: The atrocities of the Islamic State]

A representative of a British human rights group who had been in contact with Emwazi before he left for Syria also said he believed Emwazi was Jihadi John, a moniker given to him by some of the hostages he once held.

“There was an extremely strong resemblance,” Asim Qureshi, research director at the rights group, CAGE, said after watching one of the videos. “This is making me feel fairly certain that this is the same person.”

Authorities have used a variety of investigative techniques, including voice analysis and interviews with former hostages, to try to identify Jihadi John. James B. Comey, the director of the FBI, said in September — only a month after the Briton was seen in a video killing American journalist James Foley — that officials believed they had succeeded.

Nevertheless, the identity of Jihadi John has remained shrouded in secrecy. Since Foley’s killing, he has appeared in a series of videos documenting the gruesome killings of other hostages, including four other Westerners, some of whom he personally beheaded.

[The tactics of Islamic State beheadings]

In each, he is dressed in all black, a balaclava covering all but his eyes and the ridge of his nose. He wears a holster under his left arm.

A spokeswoman for the British Embassy in Washington said: “Our prime minister has been clear that we want all those who have committed murder on behalf of ISIL to face justice for the appalling acts carried out. There is an ongoing police investigation into the murder of hostages by ISIL in Syria. It is not appropriate for the government to comment on any part of it while this continues.” ISIL is another name for the Islamic State.

U.S. officials declined to comment for this report. Emwazi’s family declined a request for an interview, citing legal advice.

The Kuwaiti-born Emwazi, in his mid-20s, appears to have left little trail on social media or elsewhere online. Those who knew him say he was polite and had a penchant for wearing stylish clothes while adhering to the tenets of his Islamic faith. He had a beard and was mindful of making eye contact with women, friends said.

[Reaction to an identity revealed]

He was raised in a middle-class neighborhood in London and on occasion prayed at a mosque in Greenwich.
The friends, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the investigation, believe that Emwazi started to radicalize after a planned safari in Tanzania following his graduation from the University of Westminster.

Emwazi and two friends — a German convert to Islam named Omar and another man, Abu Talib — never made it on the trip. Once they landed in Dar es Salaam, in May 2009, they were detained by police and held overnight. It’s unclear whether the reason for the detention was made clear to the three, but they were eventually deported.

Emwazi flew to Amsterdam, where he claimed that an officer from MI5, Britain’s domestic security agency, accused him of trying to reach Somalia, where the militant group al-Shabab operates in the southern part of the country, according to e-mails that he sent to Qureshi and that were provided to The Post.

Emwazi denied the accusation and claimed that MI5 representatives had tried to recruit him. But a former hostage said Jihadi John was obsessed with Somalia and made his captives watch videos about al-Shabab, which is allied with al-Qaeda.

The episode was described in the Independent, a British newspaper, which identified Emwazi as Muhammad ibn Muazzam.

Emwazi and his friends were allowed to return to Britain, where he met with Qureshi in the fall of 2009 to discuss what had happened. “Mohammed was quite incensed by his treatment, that he had been very unfairly treated,” Qureshi said.

Shortly afterward, Emwazi decided to move to his birthplace, Kuwait, where he landed a job working for a computer company, according to the e-mails he wrote to Qureshi. He came back to London twice, the second time to finalize his wedding plans to a woman in Kuwait.
In June 2010, however, counterterrorism officials in Britain detained him again — this time fingerprinting him and searching his belongings. When he tried to fly back to Kuwait the next day, he was prevented from doing so.

[The Islamic State is failing at being a state]

“I had a job waiting for me and marriage to get started,” he wrote in a June 2010 e-mail to Qureshi. But now “I feel like a prisoner, only not in a cage, in London. A person imprisoned & controlled by security service men, stopping me from living my new life in my birthplace & country, Kuwait.”

Nearly four months later, when a court in New York sentenced Aafia Siddiqui, an al-Qaeda operative convicted for the attempted murder of U.S. personnel in Afghanistan, Emwazi expressed sympathy for her, saying he had “heard the upsetting news regarding our sister. . . . This should only keep us firmer towards fighting for freedom and justice!!!”

In the interview, Qureshi said he last heard from Emwazi in January 2012, when Emwazi sent him an e-mail seeking advice.
“This is a young man who was ready to exhaust every single kind of avenue within the machinery of the state to bring a change for his personal situation,” Qureshi said. In the end, he felt “actions were taken to criminalize him and he had no way to do something against these actions.”

[The Islamic State ‘caliphate’ is in danger of losing its main supply route]

Close friends of Emwazi’s also said his situation in London had made him desperate to leave the country. It’s unclear exactly when he reached Syria or how.

One friend said he believed Emwazi wanted to travel to Saudi Arabia to teach English in 2012 but was unsuccessful. Soon afterward, the friend said, he was gone.

“He was upset and wanted to start a life elsewhere,” one of the friends said. “He at some stage reached the point where he was really just trying to find another way to get out.”

Once in Syria, Emwazi contacted his family and at least one of his friends. It’s unclear what he told them about his activities there.

[How the flow of foreign fighters to Iraq and Syria has surged since October]

A former hostage who was debriefed by officials upon release said that Jihadi John was part of a team guarding Western captives at a prison in Idlib, Syria, in 2013. The hostages nicknamed the facility “the box.” Emwazi was joined by two other men with British accents, including one who was dubbed “George.” A former hostage said Emwazi participated in the waterboarding of four Western hostages.

Former hostages described George as the leader of the trio. Jihadi John, they said, was quiet and intelligent. “He was the most deliberate,” a former hostage said.

Beginning in early 2014, the hostages were moved to a prison in the Syrian city of Raqqa, the Islamic State’s de facto capital, where they were visited often by the trio. They appeared to have taken on more powerful roles within the Islamic State.
About the same time, Qureshi said, he sent an e-mail to Emwazi.

“I was wondering if you could send me your number,” he wrote. “Inshallah [God willing] it will be good to catch up.”

There was no response.
