“Revealed: How Sally Jones of Chatham went from being all-girl rock band member to ‘wife of ISIS jihadi fanatic who threatens to behead Christians by herself with a blunt knife,'” by Leon Watson, Daily Mail, August 31, 2014 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
A British mother-of-two who once fronted an all-girl rock band is believed to have made it to Syria where she is threatening to behead Christians with a blunt knife.
Investigations have revealed the real name of a Muslim convert who calls herself Umm Hussain al-Britani may be Sally Jones, from Chatham in Kent.
Umm Hussain has previously claimed she married British computer hacker-turned jihadi Junaid Hussain after an online romance before the pair travelled separately to Syria to join the Islamic State.
He has since become a potential suspect in the beheading of the American journalist James Foley.
On August 10 Umm Hussain tweeted that she had made it to the ‘Caliphate’ with her husband after being stuck in Idlib, north-western Syria, for seven months.
Umm Hussain later indicated she was in the IS stronghold of Raqqa.
In messages that have since been deleted, she warned: ‘You Christians all need beheading with a nice blunt knife and stuck on the railings at raqqa … Come here I’ll do it for you!’
Now a probe into his wife Umm Hussain’s online activities carried out by the Sunday Times have linked her to an address in the Medway town.
Neighbours have also identified pictures used in Umm Hussain’s online accounts as the woman who moved out five years ago and had two boys.
One neighbour said she was ‘scatty’ and another said she was interested in ‘black magic’ and witchcraft.
Others described her as a single mother who appeared to be unemployed and who loved cats.
On Twitter, Umm Hussain’s account follows only five other feeds, one of which is an account about cats in the Islamic State and another related to the pets.
A video was also found on YouTube from the early 1990s showing Jones fronting an all-girl band while wearing a leather mini-skirt.
Umm Hussain’s husband escaped to Syria last year while on police bail, and has been posting extremist messages on social media pledging to conquer the world and kill infidels.
He was accompanied on his journey by Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, 24, a former rapper from west London who is believed to have been on MI5’s radar.
In 2012 Hussain was jailed for stealing personal information from Tony Blair, and is thought to be putting his hacking skills to use adding to the militants’ huge war chest.
Hussain is originally from Birmingham and tweets behind the alias Abu Hussain al-Britani. He has been pictured online posing with a scarf over his face and a rifle in his hands.
