Jihadi John’s father ‘a bully and a collaborator with Saddam’

The father of Jihadi John moved his family to Britain from their native Kuwait after being accused of collaborating with Saddam Hussein’s forces during Iraq’s invasion of the country, it was claimed yesterday.

A picture of Jasem Emwazi has emerged which suggests he is a conservative Muslim who shielded his children from Western culture.

Meanwhile his daughter’s former boss revealed how he had been aggressively confronted by Mr Emwazi after he was forced to sack her.

Mr Emwazi is now believed to be in hiding in Kuwait after his 26-year-old son Mohammed was last week identified as the masked Islamic State butcher who has fronted horrific hostage execution videos.

    It looks like Linda1000 was mostly right after all.

    • Yup.

      Not really, I just thought the family was unlikely to be native Kuwaiti nationals. The DM still gets it wrong when it refers to the family’s native Kuwait at the above linked article. The family are Bedouin native to a tribe in southern Iraq so that is why they will never get Kuwaiti citizenship. I’m surprised Kuwait has let him return but maybe he’s on his way back to Iraq. I wonder if he has Iraqi citizenship or maybe the Bedouin tribes are not granted citizenship anywhere. I think of wandering Arab Bedouin being mostly in Saudi, Jordan and Sinai desert area but there’s not as much reference to them in Iraq. Tribal instincts – people can move anywhere but can’t get rid of them. It’s not so surprising that Jihadi John ended up being the chief head chopper for ISIS given his dysfunctional family as described in the DM.
