Live by the sword, die by the sword.
In the case of the man known as Jihadi John, the old expression might be literally true.
John, believed to be a Briton named Mohammed Emwazi, rose to infamy when he was identified as the beheader in several Islamic State propaganda videos. Now the beheader himself is on the run from the terror group, according to the International Business Times.
According to the report, Emwazi, a former resident of London, is afraid there is literally a price on his head as his services may no longer be required.
Emwazi, once a London resident, apparently fears the militant group formerly known as either ISIL or ISIS will drop him “like a stone or worse if they feel he is no longer of any use to them,” a source told the Daily Express newspaper in the U.K. The source added, “So it is possible he will end up suffering the same fate as his victims.”
The 26-year-old gained notoriety when identified as Jihadi John, who had brutally beheaded journalists and humanitarian-aid workers from the U.S. and Britain in propaganda messages released by the Islamic State group over the past year. The Express reported the loss of anonymity has terrified Emwazi.
A priority of the American and British special forces fighting the Islamic State group in Iraq and Syria is to track down Emwazi, who is concerned that jealous fellow militants may be plotting against him, the Daily Express reported.
Emwazi, a Kuwait-born U.K. immigrant who holds a degree in computer science from the University of Westminster, may be laying low with a lesser-known jihadist group in Syria. He is wanted by allied forces for questioning in the killings of James Foley, David Haines, Alan Henning, Peter Kassig and Steven Sotloff.
Emwazi now knows the fear his victims felt.
Sometimes karma is funny that way.
