A recent ISIS propaganda execution video featured five children killing 5 Kurdish YPG militants. The children in the video are from Britain, Uzbekistan, Tunisia, Egypt and one child Kurdish himself.
A blue-eyed British boy identified as Abu Abdullah al-Britani is claimed to be Jojo by his father who he says was once “just a normal kid.”
“He was brilliant, just a normal boy – always chasing bugs, going down the park,” said his father. “I have had to block it out. It’s been hard, we just have to carry on. It’s disgusting he’s been brainwashed.”
The father has not seen his son for three years after the boys mother Sally Jones, a former punk rocker turned Wahhabist convert, moved with her son to Syria.
A friend of the father said: “Sally would send him texts that were disgusting. She would threaten to take JoJo to Islamic rallies and leave him there. It was awful.
‘He was a happy boy, loving, caring, sensitive and a pleasure to be around. I’m angry at Sally for taking an innocent child who doesn’t know right or wrong. Children can be easily manipulated. He’s an innocent party and I want to know what makes a mother put her child in such a dangerous position,” he said.
