Meet a former British rapper named Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, aka, John, the man believed to have beheaded journalist James Foley.
A native of the Maida Vale neighborhood of west London, Bary lived in a $2 million home and his dad who was Osama Bin Laden‘s right-hand man.
The elder Abdel Bary was extradited to the United States in 2011. He is also suspected of creating a secret Al Qaeda cell in London. source
His son was an aspiring rapper who is said to speak in the same “multicultural London English” accent heard on the recordings of John. That accent, which emerged relatively recently among young Londoners, was parodied by comedian Sasha Baron Cohen in his “Ali G” character.
