Convicted ISIS Fighter

Exclusive Clarion Interview With Convicted ISIS Fighter

Speaking about the “right of revenge” and what he deems the Islamic philosophy of a literal interpretation of an “eye for an eye,” Delefortrie describes why ISIS decided to cage the “captured” Jordanian pilot and “burn” him alive.

Delefortrie, who is from Belgium and close to 29 years old, grew up as a Christian. A former altar boy, he converted to Islam at age 16 and changed his name to Younnes, which means “Jonah” in Arabic.

He later become part of the “radical” extremist group ”Sharia4Belgium” whose leader, 32-year old Fouad Belkacem, was the prime “recruiter” of young Belgians for ISIS and other Jihadi groups in Syria.

At the end of 2013, Delefortrie went to Syria to fight for ISIS. After five weeks, he returned to Belgium, ostensibly to bring his wife and children with him to the caliphate.”

He was subsequently arrested in Belgium along with 45 other members of “Sharia4Belgium.” In the largest terror trial of its kind, the court found all members of the group guilty on terror-related charges and meted out sentences ranging from probation to 12 years in prison.

Only nine of the 46 defendants were present for the trial, as most of the others were either abroad fighting or had already been killed in battle.

Delefortrie walked away with three years’ probation and wasn’t sent to any De-radicalization or counseling program.

Married three times with multiple children, one of whom he named after Osama bin Laden, Delefortrie was arrested in 2017 for domestic violence and sentenced to 18 months in jail. His current wife is serving a 17-year sentence for facilitating the murder of her ex-boyfriend.

The following exclusive interview was given to Clarion Project just before his sentencing and imprisonment.

In part one of this exclusive interview, Delefortrie recounts the terror organization’s justification for subjecting its prisoners to the horrific deaths we have seen published through the group’s sophisticated media productions

In part two of this exclusive interview, ISIS fighter Michael “Younnes” Delefortrie, who is featured in Clarion’s upcoming film, justifies the group’s use of children. “If you kill us…it doesn’t matter because there’s a next generation,” he says. This powerful clip highlights the cynical “abuse” of kids by Jihadi groups.

In part three of this exclusive interview with Michael “Younnes” Delefortrie, he shares ISIS’ “twisted logic” about committing cruel “acts of terror” in Western capitals. He contends that these acts are “revenge” for the West’s bombings in Syria.

He ironically “decries” how countries of the world are “interfering” in Syria, failing to acknowledge that his own terror group is doing the same thing. Instead, it reiterates ISIS’ goal of a “world dominated by Islam.”

From Belgium to Syria and Back
I’D Kill for Islam
I regret coming back
