The more a Muslim connects with his/her ‘inner Mohamed”, the more likely they sympathize with the likes of these 7th century throwbacks.
A lethal new class of British jihadi: Second fanatic in ISIS recruitment video went to same Cardiff college as the first and once dreamed of becoming prime minister. Now he says: ‘Muslims who don’t join us will die a painful death’
Schoolboy to jihadist: Reyaad Khan, now 20, is pictured at school with friends in Cardiff in 2010. He has now travelled to the Middle East to fight alongside Islamic militants
- Reyaad Khan, 20, once dreamed of being the first Asian Prime Minister
- Now, he is pictured holding a Kalashnikov alongside two British Islamists
- In a chilling recruitment video, he urges fellow Britons to take up arms
- After seeing his photo, former school friends named him on Twitter
- He went to same Cardiff sixth-form as fellow ISIS member Nasser Muthana
Once he dreamed of becoming the first Asian Prime Minister, but now this British-born jihadi spouts only hatred as he boasts of his allegiance to the murderous terrorists of ISIS, on their killing spree in Iraq and Syria.
Identified today by The Mail on Sunday, Reyaad Khan, 20, sits with a Kalashnikov assault rifle against his shoulder alongside two other British Islamists in a chilling recruitment video, urging British Muslims to take up arms.
Reyaad, who former school friends in Wales recall as a studious pupil who loved sports, is the second man to be identified in the video. He has joined the estimated 500 Britons who have been radicalised and gone to fight in the Middle East.
Yesterday, after seeing his photograph in the media, at least five people on Twitter named him as Reyaad Khan, a former pupil at Cardiff’s Cantonian High School. From there he went to St David’s Catholic sixth-form college in the city, attended by 20-year-old gap-year student Nasser Muthana – also seen in the video urging Britons to join ISIS militants in Iraq and Syria.
Nasser had taken £100 from his father to go on an Islamic seminar in Shrewsbury in November, but instead went to Syria. Three months later his brother Aseel, 17, left the house saying he was going to a friend’s for the night, but the following evening it transpired that Aseel had obtained a second passport by lying about his age and was in Cyprus, travelling to Syria.
