Meanwhile, Yoko Ono recently commented on alleged ISIS terrorist Mohammed Emwazi, who has been dubbed ‘Jihadi John’ after acquiring his nickname from late Beatle John Lennon.
In February, intelligence forces revealed that the Kuwait-born Emwazi is the man behind the Jihadi John guise, who is thought to be responsible for the beheadings of many Westerners. Emwazi and a group of fellow Islamic State members are said to have been nicknamed John, Paul, George and Ringo by prisoners.
Speaking to The Observer about the use of her late husband’s name, Ono said: “I thought that was very distasteful… I’m not going to let them destroy [the memory of] John Lennon or The Beatles.”
The activist, musician and artist added that she still remains hopeful about the possibility of world peace. She commented: “I think you can be cynical about these things. It’s going to work although it might take some time.
“I don’t like to use the word optimistic because that sounds like it’s not really true, but I think we’re actually on the road to world peace.”
Previously, Beatles drummer Ringo Starr said: “It’s bullshit. What [ISIS] are doing out there is against everything The Beatles stood for. If we stood for anything we never stood for that. The four of us absolutely stood for peace and love.”
