A man claiming to be a British banker says he has quit working in the City in order to join Islamic extremists fighting for ISIS in Syria and Iraq.
Using the nom de guerre Abu A’ntaar, the man is said to have told Russian media that he hated ‘being ruled by laws other than Allah’s’ and was sick of the ‘self-indulgence’ of rich people in London.
The man, who says he is a former business analyst, reportedly stated that he ‘hates democracy’ and is happy to be living under sharia law in the Middle East, claiming brutal ISIS militants are ‘leading the way’ and showing the world how a religious life should be lived.
ISIS, which rebranded as Islamic State after declaring the foundation of a caliphate in the vast swaths of the Middle East under its control, was this week revealed to be the wealthiest terror group in history – raking in £3 million a day through oil smuggling, extortion, theft and human trafficking.
The alleged former banker turned ISIS militant, whose real name is not known, is said to have revealed aspects of his past life in conversation with Moscow-based news agency Russia Today.
The state-owned broadcaster claims to have been exchanging encrypted instant messages with Abu A’ntaar for the past month, but had a request for a video or audio interview rejected after the militant reportedly said ISIS’ slick media department has banned him from taking part.
