Man with British accent claiming to be doctor appears in new ISIS video urging Muslim medics from England to join jihadis


He actually does have a decent English accent. To often the so-called ‘British’ accent of these boys is a bastard jafraican accent; this one does sound like he was born and educated here. From the Daily Mail

A ‘doctor’ with a strong British accent has appeared in a new Islamic State propaganda video urging Muslim medics from England and Sudan to join the jihadis in Syria. Appearing under the nom de guerre Abu Amir al-Muhajir, he may well have been responsible for recruiting the nine British Sudanese medical students who travelled to Syria last March and are believed to be working in hospitals in ISIS-held territory.

Sitting in front of a large empty desk, the doctor is clean shaven and speaks in flawless English about the different medical facilities in the Syrian province of Deir Ezzor. He declares at the beginning of the video that he is appearing, ‘on behalf of the doctors and medical council here in wilayat al-Kheir (Deir Ezzor province) in the Islamic State.

In the final minutes of the video, the English-speaking doctor gives a lengthy speech, urging Muslims with skills in medicine to join ISIS. He specifically appeals to Muslims in England, praising Islamic State as ‘a great cause being fought here’

As well as targeting English recruits, the doctor deliberately appeals to Muslims in Sudan to join ISIS. He says: ‘All my brothers in Sudan, brothers and sisters who are hesitant. Please open your eyes and make hijrah to this land, where people are fighting for Islam. ‘Not fighting for democracy. Not fighting for political gains. Everyone needs to ask themselves the question here, “Where do I want to stand, where do I want to be in front of Allah?”’

It is possible the doctor’s references to England and Sudan as medical recruitment targets could explain why nine British Sudanese medical students reportedly travelled to Syria in mid-March and are working in hospitals in ISIS controlled territory.

The British doctor in the video is also shown teaching medical students in English. He comes across as an experienced medic.

He also criticises Muslim doctors in the West for caring too much about ‘worldly gains’, claiming, ‘I don’t want money. I have never been interested in having a big house, expensive cars.  ‘This is not the life I wanted to live. Here I found the life and the great cause.’

He shouldn’t be too hard to identify.
