From the UK Sun

The British boy forced to star in a sick ISIS video has been identified by his family as Isa Dare, 4, whose mum used to be a Christian.
The child, dubbed Jihadi Junior, had begged his grandad days before: “Please save me.”
Isa made the heartbreaking plea over the phone to Sunday, 59, who then wept after seeing him paraded in front of the warped fanatics’ cameras.
His grandson, dressed in military gear and wearing an ISIS bandana, says in the vile propaganda video: “We will kill the kuffar (non-believers) over there.”
Part-time law student Sunday told how he was shocked when he saw the video at the weekend. He said: “That is my grandson, I’d know him anywhere. I couldn’t believe it when I saw the pictures. I felt sick.
“They are pure evil for doing this to that child — pure evil. I burst into tears when I saw it was him. He doesn’t like it there.
“I spoke to him on the phone and he just said, ‘Grandad, come and get me’.
“I am devastated they have used my grandson like that — they are using him as a pawn.
“Just imagine that little boy saying they are going to kill all the non-believers. He can’t know what he is saying — they have brainwashed him.”
Sunday is now appealing to his daughter — jihadi bride Khadijah Dare — to come home from Syria and “face the music”.
He said: “She must have been forced to make her son do that.”
Isa was born in South London’s King’s College Hospital in 2011, and enjoyed a normal western upbringing for the first few months of his life.
Sunday said he took him to see Arsenal play at the Emirates when he was just six months old.
Choking back tears, he added: “I used to see him every day.
“He would put his head on to my chest as I hugged him. That has been stolen from me these past four years.”
His daughter — who fled to Syria with Isa in 2012 — was brought up as a Christian by Sunday and his wife Victoria.
She was christened Grace at a church in Lewisham, South East London, and developed a love of gospel, country and pop music. Her favourite artists included Johnny Cash, Elton John and Queen and she harboured dreams of becoming a psychologist.
However, she converted to Islam in 2010 — and Sunday says she began to change dramatically.
