Peter Adamis 25 August 2014. According to recent news reports the identification of James Foley executioner has been made. At this stage the alleged killer suspect is none other than : Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, otherwise known as Lyricist Jinn Matic.

He appears to have a face book page which interestingly enough is still open as indicated in the image left. One can only assume that the main reason why the account has not been closed is to enable security agencies to monitor the traffic and observe any potential illegal Jihadist recruiting. However a glimpse at the account appears that it has not been in use for some time. The last topic being presumably on the 10 March 2014 which states: “Pagan newspapers at it again…smh. You got nothing better to write about or you love me?” Whilst another is a reference to his mother: “my mum the sickest person i know”
Security agencies and law enforcement agencies involved in identifying the execution style killing of James Foley are to be commended for an extremely fine job in identified the alleged killer. One can only assume that face, eye, voice, skeletal and audio identification was involved along with animation software to identify the killer. It would also appear that Western style Jihadist are amongst the worst of the bunch of fighters involved in Syria and Iraq and it is no wonder that there are negotiations going on between the USA, Iran, Syria and Iraq to jointly work together for the utter destruction of ISIS and whom they represent. If it is one thing that will unite all three, it is the growing menace of ISIS and the instability to paving the way towards [peace in the Middle East.
What is also if interest is the reluctance of Turkey to stop the western jihadist from slipping into Syria and Iraq to join the ISIS menace Turkey is neighbours with the nations that are battling ISIS and it is also supposed to be an ardent supporter of the USA in bring out peace and stability in the region. Is this because approximately 10% of the ISIS jihadist are Turkish citizens or is it part of a greater and sinister plan to expand the borders of Turkey at the expense o its neighbours. It is no secret that Turkey has always dreamed of expanding its borders by any means since it lost its Ottoman dominions the past 200 years.
Whatever the case maybe, the USA appears to have realised its error in backing the wrong fighters in the Middle east and are taking steps, albeit slow ones at that to remedy the situation. The British government in conjunction with other nations that have indicated their abhorrence of the evils carried out by the ISIS Jihadists will be working in unison to end the ISIS crisis and bring about their destruction. The action being taken by these nations is a direct message to those contemplating on joining the ISIS brigade in a war that is not of their own choosing, should think twice.
Every ISIS fighter who were foolish enough to think that they can hide behind a mask or a cloth dyed in black is fooling themselves at a time when there are technologies in place to identify them. They are equally foolish in thinking that advertising their activities via social media in an attempt to recruit others to their cause. In doing so they placed themselves in the spot light and allowed themselves to be recognised whether they were masked or not. One can also assume that the reason that the ISIS brigade moved into Iraq, a country that was recovering from its domestic battles was that it was considered easy pickings once the USA and its coalition partners had left the scene. ISIS were failing to make ground in Syria after losing battles and squabbling with other Syrian rebels who did not want to have anything to do with ISIS and their extremist ideologies.
Nations around the world are quickly strengthen their internal and external listening posts and enhancing their laws by creating legislation to monitor, identify, prevent and contain any potential home grown threats. Australia being one o them was one of the first nations to take positive action to ensure the security of its citizens, its way of life and its borders against any [potential terrorist acts. In Victoria it is unfortunate at this stage that the Muslim community have failed to address these issues and come to the table to discuss such matters with the Australian Prime Minister, Tony Abbott, However having said that I am quite sure that commonsense will prevail and discussions will take place. After all it is un-Australian not to be play ones part when we are all on the same team.
