Times reports that one fighter is a computer hacker from Birmingham who
stole Tony Blair's details, while another is a former private school
They have warned that the "black flag of Jihad" will fly over London, and
that there will be a new wave of 9/11-style terror atrocities across the
US. Another British-born jihadist talked about going on a "killing spree"
against non-Muslims if he ever returns to Britain.
The threats come as ISIS continue to advance in Iraq after taking the
major cities of Mosul and Tikrit. The group have posted videos of summary

He then retweeted a message from another jihadist: "We'll come back to the
UK and wreak havoc. British people watch out."
It is thought that British jihadists can join the ISIS fighters relatively
easily by flying to Turkey and then crossing the border.
Charles Lister, a visiting fellow at the Brookings Institution in Doha,
believes that British-born Muslims are now almost certainly fighting in
"This latest offensive has included a great deal of co-ordination with
forces based in eastern Syria and the exchange of resources makes it
nearly inevitable that British nationals will have been involved"
They are not very smart, which isn't surprising given the fact that most came up through the British education system
MI6 and MI5 know who they are.
They also make British Nationalists' stronger, by driving young British men into the arms of the far-right.
They talk about Jihad and don't realise that there is a body of people who are preparing their own holy war against them and their kind.
