We finally have a face to go with the name of the infamous Islamic State murderer known as “Jihadi John.” He is Mohammed Emwazi and is shown here in a Pittsburgh Pirates hat from his time at the University of Westminster. He turns out to another militant from a well-off family and someone who seemed successful in society as we have seen in other cases. This will make it easier for the United States which, according to Attorney General Eric Holder, has made capturing or killing Jihadi John a priority.
The 26-year-old now beheads people for not believing in his extreme view of Islam.
When this picture was taken he was completing his Information Systems with Business Management degree at the London’s Cavendish campus.
Cases like Emwazi tend to undermine the image of IS militants as coming from people left without jobs or a future in the West.
