Video: ISIS “Beatle” El Shafee Elsheikh in Interview from Captivity: I Don’t Denounce Slavery


No one should be surprised that this devout Muslim thinks this way. Slavery is sanctioned in Islam. The word for a black person in Arabic is abid, or slave. Yet this telling fact is hardly known by anyone in the U.S.

This speaks to the power of disinformation and propaganda, and the effects of the brutal enforcement of the blasphemy laws under Islam (do not criticize Islam, under penalty of death). The truth remains hidden. Unfathomable human rights abuses and shocking war crimes remain largely unknown to the masses — not to the millions of victims, but they have been silenced.

El Shafee Elsheikh, a member of the British ISIS cell known as the “Beatles,” which became notorious for its beheading videos of foreign hostages, gave an interview to journalist Jenan Moussa of Alaan TV from his cell. Elsheikh, who refused to answer questions regarding the charges against him, citing the “ongoing legal process,” said that he did not agree with everything ISIS did. When pressed by Moussa as to what things he opposed, he responded: “Traffic tickets… such things that have no basis in the law of Allah. ” With regard to the enslavement of Yazidi women, Elsheikh said: “I don’t denounce slavery. … Just because America decided to abolish something… It does not mean that every person has to run behind America and say: This is now an abominable act.” He further said that he decided to travel to Syria because of the oppression of Muslims worldwide. “Every environment has corruption, but nothing beats the West,” he said. The Sudanese-born Elsheikh, who was raised in London, is being held by the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces since his capture in January in eastern Syria, along with another member of the ISIS cell.
