Jihad and the Heir to the British Throne
by David Abbott
Prince Charles’s undignified sucking up to Muslims is so extreme it is widely rumoured he is a secret convert to Islam.
The idea of him lugging around a prayer mat and turning to face Mecca five times a day seems incongruous, and the rumours may well be false, but he has made so many speeches endorsing Islam as the solution to the spiritual and cultural ills of Britain and the West that people are naturally suspicious.
In 2001 a beaming Prince Charles opened a London mosque. As he was shown around the prayer hall in the new Al Manaar Mosque in west London he praised the modern building.
This mosque became a breeding ground for Islamic State killers, with two of them, Alexanda Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh, making the news on February 8 when it was announced they had been captured by Syrian Kurdish forces.
Security experts had long suspected it was a hub for young Muslims subsequently involved in the Syrian war, and on February 8th 2016 the Mirror had revealed that at least nine members of the Islamic State had regularly attended it, including Kotey, Elsheikh, Mohammed Emwazi (‘Jihadi John’) and Aine Davis, who were together called ‘the Beatles’ because of their English accents by the captives they tortured in Syria.
The purpose-built mosque was where Emwazi got to know Kotey, who also went by the name Big Sid from his Islamic name Sidique, and who was probably ‘Ringo’. In the quiet street outside the building Kotey talked openly of suicide bombing. Emwazi, Kotey and Davis had formed a close bond at the Al Manaar Mosque long before their reign of terror began in the IS stronghold of Raqqa, where Emwazi appeared in several gruesome IS videos beheading hostages, including British aid workers David Haines and Alan Henning and US journalist James Foley.
The ‘Beatles’ group kept their hostages in a state of permanent fear, forcing them to fight each other in boxing matches as they watched and then torturing the losers. Their torture techniques included electric shocks from Taser guns, waterboarding and mock executions, including a staged crucifixion. Their ‘execution cell’ beheaded more than 27 Western hostages and at least 18 Syrian soldiers and tortured many more captives.
A Danish hostage, Daniel Rye, who was released in June 2014, recalled in a book published the following year how ‘Ringo’ kicked him 25 times in his ribs on his 25th birthday, telling him it was a gift. In his chilling book, Rye wrote that ‘George’ dominated the group of jailers and was the most violent and unpredictable. Rye also described being taken to an open grave where a suspected spy was shot by Emwazi on the instructions of ‘George’. The scene was filmed by ‘Ringo’. Rye said these terrorists forced him and other hostages to climb into the grave, where they were photographed.
In social media posts Kotey stated he was ‘as British as they come’, adding he was ‘born and raised in Shepherd’s Bush, was a big QPR fan, love a good old fry up in the mornings’.
