Ringo Starr said of the ISIS Beatles: “What they are doing out there is against everything The Beatles stood for….If we stood for anything we never stood for that. The four of us absolutely stood for peace and love. But we are not in control.”
Yes, and it isn’t just you. The world is out of control, and the UK is racing into barbarism, when young men like these four can grow up walking the streets of Britain and choose the bloodlust and savagery of the Islamic State (ISIS). It’s a disquieting sign of our times.
“Beheadings, electrocutions, crucifixions…the reign of the west London Jihadists who grew up listening to the Spice Girls and watching Queen’s Park Rangers FC who became known as the ‘Beatles,’” Daily Mail, February 9, 2018:
Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh, the remaining members of the notorious execution group nicknamed ‘The Beatles’ were detained by US-allied Kurdish militia fighters in January.
Along with Mohammed Emwazi – the killer nicknamed Jihadi John – and Aine Davis, they were part of a group named after the ’60s band because of their English accents.
The four Londoners were linked to a string of hostage murders in Iraq and Syria during the bloody Islamist uprising.
The British ISIS militant, whose real name was Mohammed Emwazi, carried out a number of beheadings of Western hostages in Syria. He was killed in a U.S drone strike in 2015.
The son of a Kuwaiti minicab driver, young Emwazi arrived in Britain speaking only a few words of English, and appeared more interested in football than in Islam.
His role as Islamic State’s sadistic butcher was a far cry from the football-mad schoolboy who moved to Britain from Kuwait with his parents in 1993.
He became the face of British terrorism after beheading American video journalist James Foley and Steven Sotloff, as well as RAF aircraft engineer David Haines. Alan Henning was second Briton and the fourth Westerner to be beheaded on video by the terrorists.
Alexanda Kotey, 32, from Shepherds Bush, is said to have been part of a Gaza aid convoy organised by former MP George Galloway.
Kotey’s family today said they were ‘deeply distressed’ at claims he was part of Emwazi’s murderous group – and confirmed they have not seen him ‘for a number of years’. There are unconfirmed reports that he was killed in Syria last summer.
Father of two Kotey, a QPR fan, is believed to have been one of the terror group’s key recruiters and helped them radicalise young men from London.
He used to be a member of the Greek Orthodox Church but is said to have converted to Islam in his teens.
El Shafee Elsheikh, 29, was detained in January by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces alongside Alexanda Kotey, 34, a fellow member of the brutal execution squad.
Elsheikh other brother, Mahmoud, also adopted a fundamentalist version of Islam and was killed in 2015 fighting near Tikrit in Iraq. Both Elsheikh’s parents fled the civil war in Sudan in the 1990s – where they were members of the Communist Party – but the father, poet Rashid Sidahmed Elsheikh, left the family when Elsheikh was just seven years old
As a young man, Elsheikh enjoyed working on bikes and motorcycles in the family’s garden, and went on to study mechanical engineering at Acton College.
The Former child refugee Elsheikh was a big Spice Girls fan from White City in west London, where he supported the local team QPR.
The fourth so called ‘Beatle’, Aine Davis, originally from Hammersmith, travelled to Syria to become an ISIS guard….
