From Fox News.
Mohammed Emwazi, recently identified as the infamous ‘Jihadi John’ featured in several videos showing the beheading of hostages by ISIS, was a member of a terror cell linked to failed attacks on London’s Underground subway system in 2005.
Emwazi’s ties to terror groups have been laid out by the British government in court papers that show that he was known to that country’s security services as early as 2011. The documents were first disclosed by two British newspapers, The Observer and The Sunday Telegraph.
According to the documents, the Kuwaiti-born Emwazi was described as a “person of interest” to MI5, Britain’s domestic counter-intelligence and security agency. Officials say he was a member of a cell formed in 2007 to recruit fighters for al-Shabaab, a Somalia-based terror organization linked to Al Qaeda. The network was believed to have at least a dozen members.
The documents also show that at least one other member of that cell spoke by phone to Hussein Osman, who was part of a group that attempted to bomb London’s subway on July 21, 2005. The planned attacks were scheduled to take place exactly two weeks after four men blew themselves up on board trains and a bus, killing 52 people and injuring 700. However, in the case of the July 21 terror attack, the explosives never went off. Osman, a native of Ethiopia was later sentenced to life in prison.
Meanwhile, the Telegraph, citing Kuwaiti security sources, reported that Emwazi had become more radicalized after meeting a longtime Al Qaeda operative, Mohsin al-Fadhli, in 2007. The encounter reportedly convinced Emwazi to convert from Shiism to the Sunni Islam favored by members of both Al Qaeda and ISIS. Al-Fadhli, the onetime leader of the Al Qaeda-linked Khorasan Group in Syria, is believed to have been killed in a coalition airstrike in Syria sometime last year.
The Telegraph also reported that Emwazi also met Khalid al-Dossary, a Saudi national currently serving a life sentence in a Texas federal prison for attempting to construct an improvised explosive device.
All the information coming out about the backgrounds of these muzzie terrorist thugs, clearly proves that many of them are not the poor, uneducated, impulsive dolts that Obama portrays.
BTW: He was a star employee at a Kuwait IT company:
The former boss of the Briton identified in reports as the sadistic Islamic State killer “Jihadi John” has said he was “the best employee we ever had”.
Mohammed Emwazi was “very good with people” and was “calm and decent”, according to the head of an IT firm in Kuwait, which hired the then 21-year-old as a salesman.
…….”He was very good with people. Calm and decent. He came to our door and gave us his CV.”
The executive added: “How could someone as calm and quiet as him become like the man who we saw on the news? It’s just not logical that he could be this guy.
“Maybe he fell into the wrong hands when he went back.”
“Fell”? He ran right to them. There’s no doubt in my military mind that he harbored his intentions for a long time then simply acted when he got the opportunity.
Emwazi left the company suddenly in April 2010 after returning to London.
Further details about the killer came as emails emerged suggesting Emwazi considered suicide when he was a student, after suspecting MI5 was closing in on him.
Too bad he didn’t off himself when Brit intelligence had him pegged as a member of al-Shabaab.
