WASHINGTON, August 4, 2014 – Just 24 hours after announcing that they had watched the brutal beheading of their son, the parents of James Foley, the U.S. journalist beheaded by Islamic State militants, may know who their son’s executioner is. British security services MI5 and MI6 have identified Abdel-Majed Abdel a former West London rapper who performed under the name L Jinny.

Bary, aged 24, left his home in Maida Vale, West London, to fight in Syria’s civil war telling friends and family he was “leaving everything for the sake of Allah,.”  Bary was radicalised by followers of  ­Islamic preacher Anjem Choudary. Bary recenlty posted a gruesome photo to Twitter wearing camouflage clothing and a black balaclava while holding a severed head with his left hand. In the video, one of the clues to the killers identity is that he is appears left handed

Before killing Foley, Bary says:

Islams Ugly Face
Islams Ugly Face

This is James Wright Foley, an American citizen of your country. As a government, you have been at the forefront of the aggression towards the Islamic State. You have plotted against us and gone far out of your way to find reasons to interfere in our affairs. Today your military air force is attacking us daily in Iraq. Your strikes have caused casualties amongst Muslims.

You are no longer fighting an insurgency. We are an Islamic army, and a state that has been accepted by a large number of Muslims worldwide. So effectively any aggression towards the Islamic State is an aggression towards Muslims from all walks of life who have accepted the Islamic caliphate as their leadership. So any attempt by you, Obama, to deny the Muslims their rights of living in safety under the Islamic caliphate will result in the bloodshed of your people.

UK Times has reported that an international forensic science company have said that there is no question that Foley was beheaded, but the are questioning if it happened on camera”

“I think it has been staged,” said one expert in visual forensics, after he was commissioned by The UK Times to examine the footage.

“My feeling is that the execution may have happened after the camera was stopped.”

The analysis by experts has highlighted a number of inconsistencies that could suggest that the beheading of Foley, which was seen on the video, was not his actual death.

Investigators are also looking for Abu Hussain Al-Britani, 20, a computer hacker from Birmingham, and Abu Abdullah al-Britani, in his 20s, from Portsmouth, theMailOnline reported.

Bary, has songs online with names “Overdose,” “Flying High,” “Dreamer” and “The Beginning.” However we will not be promoting his questionable talent.

Billboard writes:

His music makes reference to violence, drug use and threats of his family being deported to Egypt. “I can’t differentiate the angels from the demons, my heart’s disintegrating. I ain’t got normal feelings,” he reportedly raps in one song.

The New York Post reports that Bary is the son of an Egyptian-born militant awaiting trial on charges tied to the deadly bombings of embassies in Kenya and Tanzania in 1998. Bary senior, 53, is awaiting trial in America after an extradition fight in the UK costing the taxpayer hundreds of thousands of pounds.

In the video released by ISIS James Foley was forced to kneel in the desert as the failed rapper made statements that the beheading was America’s fault for the airstrikes on ISIS militants in Iraq.

Bary, who is then dressed completey in black with his face hidden, kills James Foley.

When asked why they watched the video, Foley’s father said

“We just needed to know. We believe he’s free. He’s with his God. The joy has been being Jimmy’s parents. The pain is in his death.”
