‘Britain’s white jihadi’ actually a gifted Aussie school dropout called Jake now fighting for Islamic State

The Islamic State recruit the British media decried as “Britain’s White Jihadi” in December, proclaiming he was a “major coup for the terrorist group”, is actually a skinny, baby-faced boy from Craigieburn in Melbourne’s northern suburbs, and his non-Muslim family is worried sick about him.

Fairfax Media can reveal that the young westerner pictured last December sitting between bearded men and holding an assault rifle in front of the black flag of IS is actually an 18-year-old Australian called Jake. We will not reveal his full name at the request of a family member.

    Seriously? His “non-muslim” family didn’t notice the kid turning slightly jihadi before he went full ISIS? I think “going to the mosque” might have been a clue.

    He will enter hell with the mascots of his choice.

  • This is a good example of how toxic Islamic theology is (to a society).

    Before his introduction to Islam, he obviously did not plan on going to Syria and participating in jihad.

    He gets exposed to Islamic theology and presto, he is a willing murderer.

    Islamic theology should be classified as a hate ideology and banned. Anyone teaching Islamic theology should be arrested for incitement.

  • lolwut?

    Oh well, he’ll last a week at best on the battlefield if he isn’t dead already.

    That’s a boy? I assumed it was a girl at first.

    The parents should be thankful he looks like the type who would have spent the next 30 years living in their basement.

    In that photo it looks like he might be their sweet white bitch. When news of his death comes out, the headline should be: “Bamboozled, Buggered, Beheaded and Buried”.
