Need another reason to hate rap music? Here you go.
A British rapper whose father is awaiting trial in Manhattan for a pair of US embassy bombings is a leading suspect in the barbaric beheading of American journalist James Foley, it was revealed on Friday.
Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary — who recently tweeted a photo of himself holding up a severed head — was among three Brits identified as possibly being the masked killer known as “John the Beatle.”
Bary, 24, is the son of an Egyptian-born militant who is awaiting trial on terror charges tied to the deadly 1998 bombings of embassies in Kenya and Tanzania.
Also under investigation are the brother of a British doctor once charged with kidnapping two Western war correspondents, and a former gang member who converted to Islam and traveled to Syria, Britain’s Telegraph newspaper reported.
If it’s confirmed this scumbag is the one on the Foley video we should nut up and fight fire with fire. Drag his father out in public and execute him on video. But no, that might upset the delicate sensibilities of the terror-coddling left. Ooh, ooh, you’ll just make them mad and create more terrorists, they’d say.
Before becoming a jihadist, he was an aspiring rapper from West London known as “L Jinny,” whose music was played on BBC Radio 1.
Bary also appeared in music videos posted on YouTube for songs titled “Overdose,” “Flying High” and “Dreamer.”
But he was reportedly radicalized by followers of firebrand Islamic preacher Anjem Choudary and walked out of his family’s plush home in the Maida Vale district of London last year, saying he was “leaving everything for the sake of Allah.”
Plush home? Oh, so not all terrorists are poor, like the left always tell us?
Bary is one of six children of Egyptian militant Adel Abdul Bary, who was granted political asylum in the UK in 1993.
In 2012 he was extradited to the US, where he was wanted in connection to the 1998 United States embassy bombings in East Africa which killed hundreds of people.
Investigators said that he helped to publicise statements claiming responsibility after the bombings.
Bary Snr’s eight-year legal battle made him a cause celebre of the Left as lawyers took his publicly funded case to the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg.
Investigators believe Bary Snr was one of Bin Laden’s closest lieutenants in the infancy of Al Qaeda and ran a London cell of the terror network.
With all that he was living large on the public dime.
