A 20-year-old British schoolboy dubbed “Jihadi Jack” has labelled Prime Minister David Cameron an “evil creature”, while warning that UK will be targeted by the militants as long as it keeps bombing Muslims in Syria.
In his first interview with ‘The Independent’ newspaper since being accused of becoming the first white British man to travel to Syria and join the terrorist group Islamic State (ISIS), Jack Letts said David Cameron “if not actually mentally ill… is [then] an evil creature”.
“If Britain stopped bombing Muslims in Syria, the Muslims in Syria would stop attacking them… is that hard to understand,” he said.
Letts insisted he has not joined ISIS and he has travelled to the region to spread the word of Allah and help “take down” the government of Bashar al-Assad.”
“I can speak Arabic and English. That’s like my only skill. I’ve spent efforts to take down the Syrian government,” he told the newspaper.
In the interview, conducted over messaging app Telegram, Letts confirmed he is still in Syria.
He said: “The US-led coalition is a plan concocted in the diseased hearts and minds of some of Allah’s enemies. A plot with the intention of collecting sincere Muslims who believe in taking action for their religion in one place and then killing them off one by one.
