A new Iraqi TV show is in hot water after tricking celebs into believing they’ve been kidnapped by ISIS wackos.

In the prank show — called Tanneb Rislan — terrified stars are kidnapped, have fake suicide vests strapped onto them and are warned of their impending deaths.


“Troops” eventually come to their rescue and put an end to their ordeal.

In one episode, a comic actress named Nessma passed out from fear after she was fitted for a suicide vest.

International Iraqi soccer star Alaa Mhawi was also a victim of the pranksters and was shown blindfolded and begging for his life.

Now this is going to be funny. An Iraqi TV show is under fire for pranking celebs into believing they have been kidnapped by ISIS.

He pleaded with the jokester jihadis: “I’m your brother, I’m Iraqi and I represent the whole nation.”

Participants typically believe they were signing up for a charity show.

But what sounds like a riot to us is sparking outrage and accusations of bad taste in Iraq.


With sleeper cells of Islamic State jihadis still hovering in the background after their caliphate was pulverized following a bloody civil war, the wounds remain raw.

“This isn’t entertainment,” Bilal al-Mosuli, a resident of Mosul, wrote on Twitter.

Another added bitterly on Facebook: “Next year, we’ll have Saddam. Or we can throw guests into a river like the victims of Speicher (the 2014 Camp Speicher massacre, when IS executed 1,700 Shiite conscripts and dumped their bodies in the Tigris).”

Now, that is hilarious. OSAMA BIN LADEN. FBI

One person added: “I don’t see what pleasure you could get watching these people being tortured in this way.”

Show writer, Dargham Abu Rghif, came to its defence.

“The scenes are harsh but … if IS had won, artists would have had a far harder life, and all Iraqis too,” he wrote on Facebook.

Former porn star Mia Khalifa has unveiled her new tattoo and it takes aim at the ISIS death cult which threatened her life.

Khalifa — who was born in Lebanon — came under fire from the jihadist jerks when she performed a three-way sex scene while wearing a hijab.


While the action propelled her to the top of the porn charts, ISIS took umbrage, and threatened to rape, torture and murder the star.

Three months later she retired from porn.

Now, the 28-year-old beauty has been tattooed with the image of Asia Ramazan, who was killed fighting the terror group.

She wrote on Instagram: “Such an honour to have @jouseffdaniel draw this piece for me. It’s meaning will inspire me every day. Asia Ramazan was a Kurdish Women’s Protective Unit member fighting to defend Syria against ISIS. She died at 19 freeing the city of Manbij from Islamic extremists.”

Khalifa added: “Humbled that @jouseffdaniel considered me for the piece, and so thankful to @ivanatattooart for continuing the tradition of tattooing forces of change and hope on my body! Read up on Asia Ramazan Antar if you have a minute and need to feel inspired.”

Khalifa said the decision to wear the hijab in the sexy scene wasn’t hers.


“(The producers) gave me the script and told me what I would be wearing and I said: ‘You are going to get me f***ing killed,'” she told BBC’s Radio 5 Live. “Not even a week later the death threats were racking up. The entire Middle East was after me.”

She is now married and offers exclusive photos and videos on her OnlyFans page. Last year, she donated $200,000 to charity from her earnings.

NEW YORK — A Brooklyn woman who will be resentenced for supporting Islamic State after a court threw out her “shockingly low” four-year prison term did not attend a Wednesday court hearing, and a prosecutor suggested she may have cut her monitoring bracelet.

U.S. District Judge Kiyo Matsumoto in Brooklyn said she will issue a bench warrant for Sinmyah Amera Ceasar, 26, who prosecutors have said used the name “Umm Nutella” in her role as a “committed recruiter” for Islamic State.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Ian Richardson said Ceasar was not responding to calls and the government believed her GPS tracking bracket had been “tampered with” and perhaps cut. He said the FBI and probation officials are looking for it.

Samuel Jacobson, a federal public defender representing Ceasar, said he believed his client knew she had a court date. “I can’t say for sure that she understood the specifics,” he said.

Ceasar received her four-year term from late U.S. District Judge Jack Weinstein, who cited her need for educational and mental health support after a lifetime of abuse.

But the federal appeals court in Manhattan threw out the sentence on Aug. 18, saying it was too short relative to “similar terrorism crimes” and failed to properly address the needs to ensure just punishment.

Prosecutors want Ceasar detained, saying she is a flight risk and danger to the community, and has repeatedly violated probation conditions since being freed from prison in July 2020 after being sentenced about a year earlier. She had received credit for time served.


Matsumoto said she was “concerned that additional violations … have occurred as recently as July.”

Ceasar was arrested in November 2016 at New York’s Kennedy Airport while preparing to leave the country. She began cooperating with prosecutors and pleaded guilty to conspiring to provide material support to a foreign terrorist organization.

Akhtar admitted he bludgeoned innocent bystander “Annie” Hang-Kam Chiu, 64, to death with a hammer on Feb. 21, 2020, on a Scarborough street near Sheppard Ave. E. and Havenview Rd.


The guilty plea made the 31-year-old the first person to be convicted under this section of the Criminal Code.

Crown attorney Andrew Pilla — speaking on behalf of federal Crowns Jason Wakely and Howard Piafsky — described the grisly slaying as he read the agreed statement of facts before Justice Maureen Forestell.

Three hours after murdering the complete stranger, Akhtar, covered in blood and carrying a homemade bomb in a bag, surrendered at 42 Division and confessed he had executed the killing that he’d been planning since September 2019.

“The murder was a terrorist attack done in the name of the Islamic State and other attackers have targeted random people all over the world,” Pilla quoted Akhtar as telling cops.

“There is a war on Islam and there must be retaliation for what is being done on Muslim lands,” Akhtar told detectives.

He selected the victim because she was alone, not strong, and was the appropriate height to be attacked with a hammer.

He knocked Chiu to the ground with a punch, then fractured her skull with the hammer as she lay helpless on the ground.

“He wanted to kill as many people as possible, but the sight of the injuries that he inflicted on Ms. Chiu upset him and he decided to turn himself in.”


The victim’s sister, Winnie Chiu, said in her victim impact statement that “Annie” was a “wonderful, caring woman” who eagerly anticipated her retirement weeks before her unspeakable slaying.

“Annie mentioned on Jan. 24, 2020 at a family gathering, with excitement that this was the year, after working hard for over 40 years, at the age of 65, she could finally retire and enjoy her life,” wrote Winnie Chiu.

“I would never have imagined, within less than a month, she would be a victim of such a violent and lethal act, that abruptly ended her life,” she wrote. “I am devastated and heartbroken, at the same time.”

Another sister, Jenny Yuet-Sim Wai, called Annie “a guiding angel and a pillar of strength.”

“She took charge and looked after the family in all aspects as my parents had to work to make a living,” Wai wrote.

Annie encouraged the rest of her family to emigrate from Hong Kong and, despite a limited education, “was super positive in life.

Akhtar left one of two pre-written notes under the victim’s body. He was hoping police would kill him, court heard.

The note read, “Islamic State Baqiya.”

RCMP Const. Tarek Mokdad, an ISIS terrorist expert, explained Baqiya is a derivative term for the official motto of the Islamic State, “Baquiya wa Tatamaddad,” which is Arabic for “Remaining and Expanding.”

Islamic supporters shorten that expression to simply “Baqiya,” which expresses their desire to maintain the Islamic State caliphate in Syria (“remaining”) and continue their territorial expansion until Judgment Day, court heard.

Forestell automatically sentenced Akhtar, a loner and social outcast, to life imprisonment with no chance of parole for 25 years.

As weird and horrifying as the story is, that's a stereotypically Canadian end to a planned terrorism attack.

WASHINGTON — A British-born man who was a member of a team of Islamic State militants in Syria nicknamed “The Beatles” and accused of beheading American hostages pleaded guilty on Thursday to eight U.S. criminal charges including lethal hostage taking and conspiracy to support terrorists.

Article content
London-born Alexanda Kotey is one of two Islamic State members who were held in Iraq by the U.S. military before being flown to the United States to face trial on terrorism charges.


Appearing before U.S. District Judge T.S. Ellis at a hearing in Alexandria, Virginia, Kotey pleaded guilty to the murders of U.S. journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff and aid workers Kayla Mueller and Peter Kassig.

The charges carried potential death sentences, but U.S. authorities have advised British officials that American prosecutors will not seek the death penalty against Kotey.

Ellis said that under a tentative arrangement between U.S. and British authorities, Kotey could be transferred to Britain after 15 years’ imprisonment. The Justice Department said in a statement that given that Kotey agreed to life imprisonment without parole, if the sentence he serves in the U.K. is less than life for any reason, Kotey agreed “to be transferred back to the United States to serve the remainder of his sentence.”

Ellis added that as part of the plea, Kotey had agreed to “full complete and truthful” cooperation with U.S. and foreign government investigators and to supervised meetings with members of the families of hostage victims.

Kotey was a citizen of the U.K., but the British government withdrew his citizenship. He belonged to a four-member Islamic State cell nicknamed “The Beatles” because of their British accents.

The cell was suspected of taking part in graphic Islamic State videos posted online showing beheadings of foreign hostages.

A 24-page indictment includes a lengthy list of acts of torture that Kotey is accused of inflicting on hostages, including electric shocks with a taser, forcing hostages to fight each other and beatings with sticks and waterboarding.
