Captured ‘Jihadi John’ Cell Members Complain About Losing UK Citizenship
[BREITBART] Two men from Britannia and alleged members of ’the Beatles’ Islamic State
...formerly ISIS or ISIL, depending on your preference. Before that al-Qaeda in Iraq, as shaped by Abu Musab Zarqawi. They're very devout, committing every atrocity they can find in the Koran and inventing a few more. They fling Allah around with every other sentence, but to hear the pols talk they're not really Moslems....
execution cell have complained about being stripped of their UK citizenship, claiming they have been denied the right to a fair trial.

The U.S.-backed Syrian Democratic Forces captured Alexanda Amon Kotey and El Shafee Elsheikh in January in eastern Syria, and they are currently being held in the north of the country by Kurdish forces.

Their cell became notorious for capturing, torturing, and murdering Western hostages, including American journalists and aid workers, and was seemingly led by the infamous ’Jihad John’ ‐ real name Mohammed Emwazi.

Now, in an interview with the News Agency that Dare Not be Named from captivity, they spoke of their membership of Islamic State, but denied membership of the brutal execution cell.

Elsheikh, from White City in west London, called the allegations "propaganda" and another called the killings "regrettable".

They argued that press stories about ’the Beatles’ were fabricated and used as a pretext to have them killed ‐ as ’Jihadi John’ was in a dronezap. "No fair trial, when I am ’the Beatle’ in the media. No fair trial," Elsheikh said.

He claimed the British government’s decision in February to strip them of citizenship was "illegal", exposing them to "rendition and torture", Elsheikh said, "being taken to any foreign land and treated in anyway and having nobody to vouch for you".

"When you have these two guys who don’t even have any citizenship... if we just disappear one day, where is my mom going to go and say where is my son," he added.

Asked about the beheadings of American journalist James Foley and other victims, Kotey said many in Islamic State "would have disagreed" with the killings "on the grounds that there is probably more benefit in them being political prisoners".

"As for my position, I didn’t see any benefit. It was something that was regrettable," he added, before blaming Western governments for failing to negotiate and offer ransoms.

Pity that Britain is a small island and you can't just drive out into the desert and dig a hole.
