Islamapologists defend “kind and gentle” Jihadi John as a victim of harassment, anger issues… brain damage?

By now you’ve probably read that the identity of “Jihadi John,” the poster child for Islamic State’s sadistic savagery, has been revealed by the Washington Post to be 26-year-old Briton, Mohammed Emwazi.

Emwazi was born in Kuwait and moved to the UK at the age of six. He is the son of a taxi driver and a stay-at-home mom, and supposedly dreamed of becoming a professional soccer player as a boy.

Now of course he’s become much more famous, known ‘round the world for his butchering skills.

Of course the Islamapologists are out in force defending Jihadi John and trying to justify how a soccer-loving schoolboy transformed into a serial executioner.

First up is Asim Qureshi, the research director of the London-based human rights group CAGE (sort of a CAIR for Brits). Qureshi apparently met and exchanged emails with Emwazi as recently as 2012. In this video he tearfully explains how hard it is to imagine the trajectory of “such a beautiful young man,” who he also described as kind and gentle, but he blames the UK’s entire national security strategy for the last 13 years for increasing alienation in his community.

Qureshi said harassment by the security services played a major role in Emzawi’s radicalization.

Emwazi complained to the group about being detained with two friends in Tanzania in 2009, repeatedly questioned, and prevented from moving to Kuwait, where he said he had a job and fiancee waiting.

Never mind that there was a reason why he had been detained.

The Los Angeles Times says, “Court documents obtained by the BBC suggested that Emwazi may already have been associating with suspected radicals at the time. The documents filed in 2011 allege that Emwazi was part of a group known as the North London Boys, which had been funneling equipment, funds and fighters to the Somali militant group Shabab.”

Another CAGE spokesman, Cerie Bullivant, had a heated exchange with Sky News reporter, Kay Burley. He eventually stormed off camera after she told him to “get over yourself.”

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMEb-xd4PiI

When Burley asked Bullivant how he felt about the beheadings of Western hostages, he said, “To be frank, I’m appalled that you would ask that question,” with Burley replying, “Don’t be appalled, just answer the question if you would please.”

Bullivant also maintained that British security policies are to blame and said perpetrators of attacks often quote foreign policy as “the key pushed,” as well as harassment and domestic policy.

“We keep on ignoring that, it’s not about justify it, its about looking at the causes of it so we can make everybody safer, both here and abroad,” he said.

But perhaps Emwazi’s problems go back even further.

The Los Angeles Times reports “a teacher at Mohammed Emwazi’s high school told the BBC he used to get into fights as a teenager and had difficulty keeping his emotions in check. He reportedly took anger management classes as a student.”

“We would find that he would get very angry and worked up and it would take him a long time to calm himself down,” the teacher said, speaking on condition of anonymity for security sake, according to the BBC. “We did a lot of work as a school to help him with his anger and to control his emotions and it seemed to work.”

But maybe his problems go back even further than THAT.

“One former classmate phoned a popular London talk radio show to say he remembered Emwazi hitting his head on a metal goal post in the playground while trying to run from some boys spoiling for a fight.”

The caller said Emwazi was about 10 years old at the time and “he was not the same ever since that brain injury.”

Yep, that must be what this is all about. Brain damage. Goodness, there are an awful lot of young men who must have been running into goal posts recently because the Islamic State forces are up to 30,000 or so.

Here’s an interesting map showing from where those brain damaged men (and women) have come. That’s a lot of goal posts.

Sadly, every muslim man is a potential mass murderer due to their death cult manual (koran) written by a racist, sexist, pedophile, rapist, mass murdering psychopath (muhammad the Evil). Religion of peace? Not so much.

It is Bush fault. He opened that can of worm.

Russell Neefe

Well you can blame Bush for the way Obama dropped Iraq without any aid when they hurt his feelings by not kissing his ash. The plan Bush had set-up would been further training and troop reduction over a longer time to allow the Iraqis time to be trained. But His Royal Highness knew better than even the Generals that discouraged his sudden troop pull out.

Rafael X . . . Are you saying Bush all by himself took the US into the conflict in Iraq in 2003? It is funny that there are videos showing that Bill Clinton in 1998 stated for a fact that Iraq had WMD’s. In 2002, before Congress voted in favor of the US disarming Iraq, there were many knowledgeable Democrats in both Houses of Congress state for a fact they knew Iraq had WMDs. Sen. John Kerry “Let me be clear, the vote I will give to the president is for one reason and one reason only: To disarm Iraq… Read more »

Brought to you by the democrats………….. Democrat Quotes on Iraq Weapons of Mass Destruction “One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line.” –President Bill Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998 “If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction program.” –President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998 “Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal… Read more »

Are you really trying to convince me that Democrats wanted the Iraq war? What I’m supposed to do now? Link to to the video where Colin Powell was making his case. Or copy/paste 8 paragraphs of Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Condi Rice, Scott Libby. Seriously dude get out my face with that crap. Here’s your link.

Correct. Complete piece of crap. What is so telling is that this person literally lives on this blog. Every single day, every single article written, you will find this piece of trash mouthing off as if anyone gives a crap.

Some people might think the problem/solution is more complex then just the inventing stupid neologisms. Only makes them not as intellectually lazy as that “editor-in-chief”. Some Europeen, American kids who didn’t grow up anywhere near Islam are leaving home to join ISIS. Why are they doing it?

unfortunately, using the word “neologisms” doesn’t make you any less of an idiot.

Donna

I read a really interesting article about that talks about ISIS as a small yet growing fundamental sect of Islam. If these people believe in this (look at Jim Jones-people actually drank the kool-aid…) then it’s easy to believe that people will leave their homes to join ISIS. Thanks for your intellectual rigor.

Happy to oblige.

Harf at the State Department has declared that it is because they are from countries that have very little economies going for them and they can’t find jobs. I they are destitute. How do they find the money to travel from all over the world and join ISIS????

Isis provides financial assistance for travel expenses. Especially for girls. Once you make to Turkey it cost 25$ to cross into Syria.

Well duh. Of course the problem is complex. Never miss a chance to insult the editor in chief do you. Why: Because people who have children are ignorant about what their own kids are doing. Their children have complete connectivity unsupervised to all social media/internet. They are then brainwashed by muslim pigs in social chat rooms much like pedophiles operate while looking for new victims. And their parents don’t even know this is happening mostly because they are MIA. Their young brains are like soft dough. Teens and 20 something’s are the most impressionable people on the planet.
