The British boy dubbed 'Jihadi Junior' begged his grandfather to save him just days before he was forced to appear in a sickening ISIS execution video.
Isa Dare, 4, was paraded in military fatigues and an ISIS bandanna while being made to declare: 'We are going to kill the kaffir (non-believers) over there.'
He was brainwashed by ISIS fanatics after being taken to Syria three years ago by his mother, the Muslim convert Grace 'Khadija' Dare, 24, who had links to the killers of Lee Rigby.
His grandfather, Henry Dare, 59, said Isa made a desperate plea for help during a heartbreaking phone call just days before he featured in the barbaric stunt, saying: 'Please save me.'
Mr Dare, who is also known as Sunday, told The Sun: 'I am devastated they have used my grandson like that — they are using him as a pawn.'
But in an earlier interview, he said of Isa: 'He's my grandson. I can't disown him.' He also urged his daughter to return to Britain to 'face the music'.
He told Channel 4 she had called him from Syria 'weeks ago', having 'brought shame' on the family.
His daughter had told him she was going to Egypt to study and when he found out she was in Syria, 'I dropped the phone on her because I was annoyed'.
Asked if he thought his grandson had any idea what he was saying in the video, Mr Dare – of Deptford, South-East London – said: 'No – he's a kid.
