First Pictures of Jihadi John Before He Became Devout

38

Jihadi John was once a fun-loving ten-year-old who adored The Simpsons, Playstation games and eating chips, and dreamt of becoming a Premier League star, scoring goals for Manchester United by the age of 30.

So what happened? Islam.

Former schoolmates were yesterday struggling to believe that the quiet boy they knew had been unmasked as the world’s most notorious terrorist.

In a chilling twist, in a school yearbook from when he was 10, Emwazi lists his favourite computer game as shooting game “Duke Nukem: Time To Kill” and his favourite book as “How To Kill A Monster” from the popular children’s Goosebumps series.

He also lists his favourite band as pop group S Club 7, and when asked what he wants to be when he is 30, writes: ‘I will be in a football team and scoring a goal.’

Emwazi also listed his favourite colour as blue, his favourite animal as a monkey, his favourite cartoon as The Simpsons and chips as his favourite food.

So what happened to Little Muhammad? Piety.

Every premise and assumption American and European counter-terrorism programs are using must be tossed out.  Their premise is false so their programs will continue to fail.  Well-educated and affluent, the catalyst for jihad is a move towards the faith of Islam. Religiosity is the catalyst.

They will attribute jihad to poverty, illiteracy, culture — anything but its true origins. Law enforcement, FBI, CIA, M15

The first picture of British ISIS executioner Jihadi John’s face as an adult has been published – from his time as a model student at the University of Westminster.

The world’s most wanted man was named yesterday as Mohammed Emwazi, a British ‘known wolf’ who grew up in west London and fled to Syria under the nose of MI5 in 2012.

This afternoon this picture – the first of him as an adult – emerged from his time at the University of Westminster, where he studied Information Systems with Business Management from 2006 to 2009.

Wearing a Pittsburgh Pirates baseball cap and sporting a goatee beard, the photograph shows eyes which clearly belong to the Islamic State’s executioner-in-chief.

But when this photo was taken he was a model student at a London university – his academic record shows he passed all but two of the modules for his degree, gaining a 2:2.

The record shows he passed the majority of his modules, including Introducing Mathematics, Gender, Ethnicity and Cultural Representations, Project Management, Business Organisation and Communication and Interactive Management, but was awarded a ‘condoned credit; retake’ status for modules in Business Information Systems and Managing Business Organisations.

It has also been revealed Jihadi John was once a fun-loving ten-year-old who adored The Simpsons, Playstation games and eating chips, and dreamt of becoming a Premier League star scoring goals for Manchester United by the age of 30.’When I am 30 I will be in a football team and scoring a…
Londoner Mohammed Emwazi’s handwritten entry in his primary school yearbook shows no sign he would go on to become the world’s most wanted man, believed to have beheaded a string of hostages in the name of Islam.

Describing his ambitions, the Kuwaiti-born British citizen, who moved to the UK aged six, wrote: ‘What I want to be when I grow up is a footballer’, and said by the age of 30 he would be ‘in a football team scoring a goal’.

A decade later Emwazi had shunned British life and was a ‘known wolf’ to MI5 who had already taken the path towards becoming ISIS’ most notorious murderer at the age of 26.

Pictures taken of Emwazi as a schoolboy shows him smiling at the camera with his church school friends – and there is nothing to link this middle-class schoolboy to the merciless terrorist butcher Jihadi John.

It has emerged that secret services made several attempts to ‘turn him’ but he steadfastly refused to co-operate, eventually blaming MI5 for becoming a murderous extremist.

 

Where I’ll be when I’m 30: I will be in a football team and scoring a goal

Today Boris Johnson’s deputy mayor for policing, Stephen Greenhalgh, told the Evening Standard: ‘The security services and the police have to do all they can to protect the public. You can’t plea bargain with evil’.

Arriving in Britain when he was six years old, the Kuwaiti-born extremist appeared to embrace British life, playing football in the affluent streets of West London while supporting Manchester United.

Neighbours recalled a polite, quietly spoken boy who was studious at his Church of England school, where he was the only Muslim pupil in his class.

The son of a Kuwaiti minicab driver, young Emwazi arrived in Britain speaking only a few words of English, and appeared more interested in football than in Islam.

He went to mosque with his family, who spoke Arabic to each other, but wore Western clothing and became popular with his British classmates at St Mary Magdalene Church of England primary school in Maida Vale, West London.

Former schoolmates were yesterday struggling to believe that the quiet boy they knew had been unmasked as the world’s most notorious terrorist.

JIHADI JOHN’S SIBLINGS: BROTHER FOLLOWS HATE PREACHER AND SISTER WROTE OF HOODED KILLER

The younger brother of Mohammed Emwazi is a small-time criminal with hardline and outspoken Islamist views.

Student: Emwazi's 19-year-old sister was a prefect and studied cinematography at A-Level

It emerged yesterday that the 21-year-old from London follows a radical Muslim cleric – while his younger sister is a media student who once made a short film about a ‘hooded serial killer’.

Emwazi’s brother – whom the Mail had decided not to name – is a member of the Woolwich Dawah group, who once harboured the killers of Lee Rigby.

The university graduate, who like his sibling has taken a keen interest in computer networks, listens to the teachings of radical preacher Khalid Yasin. 

Several of his friends use images similar to those used by extremists online and last night at least one of his 68 friends on Facebook was displaying the black flag of Islamic State.

He has also commented on videos, supporting one in which a woman is mocked for praying in a clumsy manner.

He has at least two convictions, for handling a stolen police bicycle and a string of thefts at a shopping village – and has twice been hauled back for repeated breaches of community orders.

His 19-year-old sister, like Emwazi, went to Quintin Kynaston school where she was a prefect and studied cinematography at A-Level. 

Her film, a ‘thriller’ depicting a hooded man chasing a girl through a school, was made as part of her coursework and contained themes about bullying.

Writing about her studies online, the teenager – whom the Mail is not naming and whose face we are obscuring to protect her privacy – said: ‘It gives out a hidden message about … how we humans shouldn’t stereotype people and pick on them because of what background they come from or the colour of their skin nor what they believe in. Also…that revenge is NEVER the right answer.’

She is now thought to be studying media studies at Middlesex University.

In emails to the campaign group Cage, Emwazi said: ‘He [Nick] knew everything about me; where I lived, what I did, the people I hanged around with.’

‘Nick’ then tried to recruit the 21-year-old, Emwazi claimed, and threatened him when he refused to cooperate.

Emwazi said the officer told him: ‘You’re going to have a lot of trouble…You’re going to be known…You’re going to be followed…Life will be harder for you.’

On his return to Britain, Emwazi said his family told him they had been ‘visited’, and he claimed a woman he had been planning to marry broke off their engagement because her family had also been contacted and were scared.

According to Emwazi, his family then began planning for him to travel to Kuwait to get him away from the ‘harassment’ he had suffered in Britain and he went to work for a computer programming company in the emirate.
