It is a shame that the four members of ISIS (now down to two) that we keep seeing on the news and that carried out a number of be headings, keep being referred to as the Beatles; something the four came up with themselves I believe. I noticed one BBC newsreader raised a half smile at this !. There is nothing remotely funny about those charactyers..or ISIS as a whole….

This was mentioned on the forum last February. https://www.beatlesbible.com/f…..4/#p207722
They were called The Beatles by the people they held captive, etc. https://www.google.com/amp/s/a…..is-cruelty
They were dubbed “the Beatles” by their victims, in reference to their British accents – though they were from London, rather than Merseyside.
Interesting that the dialect difference between London and Liverpool is mentioned.
All of the four in the group have been killed or taken into custody.
I will lock this thread for now and let @Joe decide if he wants to unlock or delete it.

I’m going to keep this thread locked. It’s obviously a horrific situation for anyone on the wrong side of these people, and I don’t want to give ISIS any further attention. It has nothing to do with the Beatles beyond a misappropriation of their names.
Also, the Beatles were about peace and love, which is about as far away from this ideology as one could get.
