Chilling Recruitment Video Purports to Show Young British Extremists Promoting ISIS

John Hall, Daily Mail (London), June 20, 2014

A chilling recruitment video featuring young British jihadists encouraging Muslims in the West to join them in Iraq and Syria has purportedly been released by ISIS.

The 13-minute video is professionally shot and edited, and shows a group of young men sitting in a circle, holding weapons and reciting militant Islamist slogans and passages from the Qur’an.

Speaking perfect English in British accents while sat in front of the black jihadist flag, the men beg Islamists in the UK to join them ‘in these golden times’, telling viewers: ‘You are going to die anyway’.

The video–which is titled ‘There is No Life Without Jihad’–appears to have been professionally edited, and was published on YouTube by ISIS’ Al Hayat Media Center.

Among those speaking on the video are men identifying themselves as Abu Muthana Al Yemeni, and Abu Bara’ Al Hindi–both of whom claim to have travelled to the Middle East from Britain.

Another man, Abu Dujana Al Hindi, also says he is from Britain–with all three speaking in clear English accents.

The footage is intersected with sections of music and religious chanting, as the men instruct viewers to leave their lives in the West behind and join ISIS’ brutal campaign in Iraq and Syria.

The men appear to be sat in a lush grove while they speak–the greenery juxtaposing the terror, death and brutality the militant group has brought to parts of Syria and Iraq in recent weeks.

At several points the man identifying himself as Abu Bara’ Al Hindi claims joining the group will alleviate the stress and ‘depression’ of living in the West.

‘Are you willing to sacrifice the job you’ve got, the big car you’ve got, the family you have? Are you willing to sacrifice this, for the sake of Allah?,’ he says.

‘Then definitely, if you sacrifice something for Allah, Allah will give you 700 times more than this,’ he adds.

Another man making an appearance in the video is Abu Yahya ash Shami–who speaks with a strong Australian accent.

The video was heavily promoted by supporters of ISIS on Twitter this morning, as they launched a massive propaganda drive across social media.

Using the hashtag #AllEyesOnIsis, hundreds of accounts were encouraged to post messages of support for the brutal Islamist group.

In an uncontrollable stunt–that cannot be moderated or blocked–extremist fighters vow to ‘spread the truth’ behind their brutal attacks that even Al Qaeda have condemned.

It comes just hours after President Barack Obama announced plans to unleash air strikes on Iraq as world leaders warn of ‘a catastrophe of unprecedented scale’.

Twitter refused to speak about ISIS’ propaganda drive on the social media site this morning. Nobody from the Home Office or Scotland Yard was available to comment.

  • “British?” Where?

  • MekongDelta69

    Once again – for the tenth time this week – they are NOT British.

    • Lagerstrom

      Once again from me too MKD. These people are not British. For some strange reason they live there and hate the place.

  • So CAL Snowman

    They’re about as much “British” as I am Chinese.

    The white weenies are now saying mass immigration to their country has no economic benefits. Great trade off, eh? They’ve inundated the country with third world kooks, oddballs, misfits, killers and religious fanatics, who ALL despise the UK, in return for crime and chaos.

    It’s unequivocally a crime against humanity and the people responsible should be publicly hanged.

      These Jihadists are about as British as John McCain is Panamanian. (John McCain was born in Panama but neither of his parents are ethnically Panamanian, both of his parents are White Americans)

    Being British is more than just an accent. You must also think, feel and act British. This presupposes being descended from a long line of indigenous Britons.

    • “You are going to die anyway.”

      It is the British welfare state that leaves them unconcerned about who will take care of their families when they do die.

  • If Karma is real, the white politicians who sold Britain out will be beheaded by the muzzies. As horrifying as that prospect is, it does have a certain sense of justice about it.

    • mikebowen55

      I don’t find that prospect horrifying in the least.

  • I think they should be encouraged to go: all of them.

  • Lagerstrom

    Well, I never! I’m shocked I tell you, shocked!

    Meanwhile, Australia cancels the passports of their “Australians” who go off to jihad so they can’t get back in. England will let them back in the UK line and won’t even have their names on a list of jihadists. They will probably bring back new formulas for easy to make bombs.
