39-year-old Denis Cuspert from Germany oversees recruitment propaganda

The monstrous mastermind behind all the beheading videos broadcast by jihadist terrorists is in actuality a 39-year-old former rapper from Germany. Denis Cuspert converted to Islam several years ago, and actually appears in such a video holding a severed head.

Denis Cuspert holds previous prison convictions and was born to a German mother and a Ghanaian father in Berlin.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Cuspert oversees the militant group's push to recruit Britons to come to the region and fight.

Now declaring himself "Abu Talha al-Amani," Cuspert is reported to have personally sworn an oath of loyalty to ISIS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi earlier this year. He has since become the group's main propagandist.

Act now, please help save fellow Christians from genocide!

Denis Cusper certainly didn

Denis Cusper certainly didn't seem to have a problem with the materialism of the West when he was a rapper back in Germany!


Cuspert's vile mixture of hate and propaganda appeals to young, disillusioned people in Europe and provides an alternative ideology, in the manner of Nazi hate literature of an earlier generation.

Cuspert holds previous prison convictions and was born to a German mother and a Ghanaian father in Berlin.

He spent several years as a major player in the Berlin hip hop scene under the name "Deso Dogg" before joining ISIS in Syria.

He now oversees the group's sophisticated media operation. Cuspert is reportedly using British fighters in an attempt to attract even more of their countrymen to the war-torn region.

He also leads a unit of German-speaking ISIS terrorists operating under the name "The German Brigade of Millatu Ibrahim."

Cuspert appeared in an ISIS beheading video. He claimed the victim fought the terror group and as a result "received the death penalty."

Another man in the video explains in Arabic that the victims were members of Syria's al-Sheitaat tribe, a group of about 70,000 Sunnis who are fighting ISIS.

According to some newspaper reports, Cuspert is the subject of a dossier compiled by German security services, which quotes him as saying, "My duty is to use my voice for telling people the truth and the truth is jihad is a duty."

The lyrics in his song "Who's Afraid of the Black Man" roils with his hatred for the West and his tendency towards violence. "Doing time in my skin like Tookie Williams in San Quentin. No identity, where will this end?

"In a white world full of hate and illusion. The last option was only violence and emotion."

Terrorism expert Raphael Perl of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) told reporters that Cuspert gained fame "with music and now he brings his fans in contact with a radical ideology."
