    That's not the first time it has been claimed he has been identified. Now a name is produced, but oddly in that article, no quote from British security services or the British government. Just a quote from a friend who thinks he know who it is. And the quote from a US media source and not a British one.

    The Guardian says: The security services declined to confirm or deny that Emwazi was the knife-wielding killer. Downing Street also refused to comment on the reports.

    U.S. intel official confirms identity of "Jihadi John"

    LONDON -- The knife-wielding masked ISIS militant seen in a number of beheading videos and dubbed "Jihadi John" has been named as Mohammed Emwazi, a London man with a college degree, a U.S. intelligence official confirmed to CBS News Thursday.

    Emwazi earned his degree from the University of Westminster, the official told CBS News.

    Both The Washington Post and the BBC reported Thursday that he was known to British security services by 2011 at the latest.

    Friends of Emwazi spoke to the Post on condition of anonymity, including one who said that they had "no doubt" Emwazi was the man who appeared in execution videos of American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff and American aid worker Peter Kassig.

    The research director at a British human rights group also told the Post that he believed Emwazi was the man in the videos.

    "There was an extremely strong resemblance," Asim Qureshi told the Post. "This is making me feel fairly certain that this is the same person."

    Emwazi's family wouldn't comment to the Post. Neither would U.S. officials.

    Referring to ISIS by an acronym for the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL, a spokeswoman for the U.K. Embassy in Washington told the Post, "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."

    Emwazi's friends told the Post that they believe that a planned trip to Tanzania in May 2009 led to his radicalization.

    Emwazi and two male friends were detained by police upon their arrival in Dar es Salaam, stayed in custody overnight and were eventually deported, the Post reported.

    Emwazi then went to Amsterdam. According to emails that he sent to Qureshi, which were provided to the Post, Emwazi claimed that an officer there from the British Security Service, known as MI5, accused him of trying to go to Somalia, where the al Qaeda-linked terror group al-Shabaab is based.

    Emwazi claimed MI5 then tried to recruit him, the Post reported.

    ^ Have a read of this.

    It actually sounds familiar, like he's not the first person to be treated like this.

    It's all very well knowing Jihadi John's real name but if he gets back to London, Leicester or Bradford, it might as well be fucking Spartacus!.

    A representative of an advocacy group for communities affected by the 'war on terror' stormed off Sky News today during an interview about the Isis militant known as ‘Jihadi John’, after a presenter told him to “get over himself.”

    CAGE spokesman Cerie Bullivant was being interviewed by presenter Kay Burley over reports that the 'Jihadi John' had been identified as west Londoner Mohammed Emwarzi, 27.

    The human rights group had previously been in contact with Emwarzi for two years, and said the security services had harassed him.

    “What level of harassment by security services in the United Kingdom justifies beheadings?” Ms Burley asked Mr Bullivant.

    He responded by saying that “nobody is apologising or trying to make an excuse” for Emwarzi’s alleged beheadings, and said it was important to debate the causes of radicalism.

    Do you still have doubts that Jihadi John has not been identified?

    Lets hope that they identify, the right person.

    Hopefully not like the Saudi airline pilot of 911.

    Perhaps the media could drop the 'cute' Beatles-inspired nickname now.

    sky - faux news for the chavs

    but some bint on television wants ratings so she dribbles some strawman sh1t about people supporting the fcukwit

    and said it was important to debate the causes of radicalism
    and some one trying to raise awareness of why these cnuts become over the top religious nutters

    that does not fit with the strategy of making the chavs that watch sky tv feel that they are somehow warriors in The War Against Terror

    He was a 'beautiful young man' who just morphed willy-nilly into a murderous monster because of the atrocities of the West toward Muslims.
