Jihadi John’s father has disowned his ISIS executioner son, labelling him a ‘dog’ and an ‘animal’ in an emotional outburst.
Jaseem Emwazi blasted his son, Mohammed Emwazi, who was recently revealed as infamous ISIS executioner Jihadi John, which sent shockwaves around the world.
Abu Meshaal, 40, works with Mohammed’s father in a Kuwait supermarket. According to Abu, the Emwazi family disowned their son in 2013 after he telephoned them to beg their forgiveness after fleeing to Syria.
Mr Meshaal told the Telegraph:
Mohammed called his father and said ‘I’m going to Syria to fight jihad, please release me and forgive me for everything’. Jassem said, ‘F*** you. I hope you die before you arrive in Syria’.
However, his father isn’t the only appalled relative. Others have come out to condemn his actions and welcome his death.
A Kuwaiti cousin, who would not give his name said: ‘We hate him. We hope he will be killed soon. This will be good news for our family.’
Reports also came out this week that Emwazi’s mother, Ghania, cried out when she first saw her son as Jihadi John in the execution video of James Foley. Reports say that she instantly recognised him, even behind the outfit.
