‘Beatle’ terrorist told daughter of ISIS victim her dad begged 'make it quick'

Islamic State has been told in person by one of his killers that her dad pleaded "please make it quick".David Haines made the desperate appeal as he waited to be put to death by Jihadi John - one of four IS militants, nicknamed the "Beatles" because of their British accents, who had abducted him.His body was never found but Mr Haines' daughter Bethany who, ever since her father's murder in 2014 has always wanted more information about his death, has now also learned that he was captured "by chance" after she courageously met with another "Beatle" Alexanda Kotey in Virginia for a two-hour chat.

'Fanatical terrorist' Ali Harbi Ali found guilty of murdering MP Sir David Amess at surgery
stabbing Southend West MP Sir David Amess, has been found guilty of murder at the Old Bailey after a judge said he had no legal defence.Ali, 26, said in evidence on Thursday that he stabbed the long-serving Conservative MP at his regular surgery in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, on 15 October 2021 as "retribution for airstrikes" in Syria.The Islamic State fanatic carried out the “cold and calculating” murder at the veteran MP’s constituency surgery in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, on October 15 last year.He told the Old Bailey trial he had no regrets about the murder, defending his actions by saying Sir David deserved to die as a result of voting in Parliament for air strikes on Syria in 2014 and 2015.A jury deliberated for just 18 minutes to find Ali guilty of murder and preparing for terrorist acts.Ali sent a manifesto on WhatsApp to family and friends seeking to justify his actions around the time of the attack, telling Sir David he was “sorry” before plunging the knife into him, causing the politician to scream.He died at the scene.Knife-wielding Ali was later apprehended by two police officers armed only with batons and spray.Essex Police Chief Superintendent Simon Anslow praised his officers’ “astounding bravery” in tackling Ali.He said: “They’ve basically gone in armed with a stick – something that appears smaller than a deodorant can – to deal with a man that has just committed an absolutely heinous act, still armed with that knife.“I think it’s an astounding act of bravery.”Director of Public Prosecutions Max Hill QC said the murder was “the most appalling tragedy”, particularly for the Amess family, and an “attack on democracy”.He said: “I’m obviously pleased that at the end of what must have been a very difficult trial for Sir

Shamima Begum.The documentary maker, 51, wants to grill her on her time with the terrorist group and her regrets.He told the Daily Star Sunday: “ISIS is the story I missed when that was going on.“I’d like to interview a bigot who is still signed up to it. Or a regretful Jihadi like Shamima Begum.”Louis has been keen to make a show about ISIS for years.He added: “I tried to get out there in the hope I would be able to interview some of the repentant jihadis and that’s never happened.“I would have interviewed anyone in a position of authority there.”Louis also wants to quiz Hollywood icon Tom Cruise about his involvement with controversial religion Scientology.He said: “I’d love to interview Tom Cruise – only because of my history with Scientology.“I feel as though people are either scared to ask him about it or they feel like it would create an awkward mood.“I just think someone talking to him about what’s really going on in Scientology would be really valid.”This comes weeks after Shamima Begum offered to help Boris Johnson fight terrorism so kids do not repeat her mistakes.Shamima left her family in the UK with two of her friends to join Islamic State in Syria when she was just 15.Three weeks after leaving England and arriving in Syria, Shamima married an IS fighter.Years later, she says that she is reformed and remains hopeful of forgiveness and the chance to return home to London from Syria.In her latest interview with GB News, the now 22-year-old said she thinks she has what it takes to stop others being radicalised by ISIS.When asked if she would share her story, Begum told filmmaker Andrew Drury: "Of course.

Shamima Begum could 'return to UK' after another Brit teen's terrorism charges dropped
Shamima Begum could mount a new bid to return to the UK after a landmark court ruling.The young woman who notoriously traveled to Syria after an online grooming campaign by Islamic State [ISIS] was stripped of her British citizenship after she left the UK to join them and now, aged 22, is living in a detention camp in Syria.But this week a 16-year-old schoolgirl from Derbyshire had charges against her dropped after the Home Office ruled she had been exploited online.The teen had been accused of downloading instructions for making bombs but the case was dropped after officials accepted she had been the victim of sexual exploitation.Ms Begum has complained that it’s difficult for her to communicate with her legal team while she’s in the chaotic environment of the al-Roj camp, which was set on fire by women loyal to IS at the end of last year.Ms Begum has said she was groomed online before leaving the UK with friends Amira Abase and Kadiza Sultana when she was just 15.She denies that she was directly involved in any acts of terror. Begum insists that her motivation for joining IS was simply to “get married, have children and live a pure Islamic life”.She insists: “I did not do anything in Isis apart from be a mother and a wife … the government don’t actually have anything on me.”Intelligence sources say that some 900 Britons travelled to Syria or Iraq to join Isis.
