Jihadi John Tango: Odd ISIS Demand

Jihadi John Tango: Odd ISIS Demand, It was a dance with a devil.

Jihadi John, the ISIS executioner who beheaded a series of western hostages on camera, once forced one of his prisoners to dance with him in a Syrian prison and talked about twisted torture tactics after the waltz.

“He picked me up and I had to dance the tango, John and I,” Daniel Rye told Danish broadcaster DR, according to CNN. “My head was down and afraid of being beaten. He led me around the prison.”

Rye, a 26-year-old Danish photographer who was held hostage in Syria between May 2013 and June 2014, said the ruthless fighter turned violent midway through the dance.

“Suddenly, he changed and just pushed me down. They kicked and hit me. They finished by threatening to cut my nose off with pliers and things like that,” he said.

Rye said the tangoing terrorist was Jihadi John, who Western officials identified as London native Mohammed Emwazi earlier this year. He was introduced to the world last August when ISIS released a video of him severing the head of American freelance journalist James Foley.

Foley’s execution was followed by a series of equally gruesome videos of the same masked man beheading five other hostages, including Americans Steven Sotloff, 31, and Peter Kassig, 26.

He has not appeared in a beheading video since January. His whereabouts are unknown.

Rye was released last year after his family forked over a massive ransom.

Experts said the twisted tango shows the terrorists’ ” ‘(A) Clockwork Orange’ sense of sinister humor about torturing.
