Shaggy is the man with a plan to save gays from ISIS

The reggae-pop legend has come with a unique approach to stopping extremists killing gay people, torturing innocents and destroying whole towns.

Forget air strikes. Forget peace talks. Who needs Obama, Clinton, Cameron or Merkel when the solution to the world’s biggest terrorist threat has been staring us in the face all this time?

Yes, you guessed it – Shaggy and his smooth lyrical beats are apparently all the world needs to end extremist group ISIS’ reign of seemingly never-ending horror – well, according to the man himself, anyway.

The No Angels singer has divided his seemingly well thought out plan into two parts.

Firstly, get as much Jamaican marijuana over to the Syria and Iraq as possible.

“They need to bag some Jamaican weed and distribute it amongst ISIS,” Shaggy told the New Miami Times recently.

“I guarantee there won’t be any more wars out there. High people don’t want to kill nothing; they want to love.”

Secondly – and here is the clever part – rather than let a bunch of drug addled former terrorists roam around the Middle East with nothing to do, Shaggy has a great idea on how to keep them distracted.

“If you’re able to cut a man’s head off, you’re sick.

“But right, music evokes emotion. So if they’re listening to Shaggy music or reggae music, they’re not going to want to cut somebody’s head off.”

In years to come we may ask ourselves who was responsible for defeating Isis and for once, Shaggy will say it was him.

Many may criticise his approach, but some argue he may have a point – Mr Lover, a.k.a Orville Burrell, is well known for his charitable efforts and he is famed for his positive approach to life.

The musician’s charitable efforts have seen homes built and hospitals renovated in some of the world’s poorest areas and he insists that he has little time to hate.

Either way, it may be worth a try – the extremists show no sign of slowing in their horrific acts of violence, after executing four men suspected of being gay last month, shortly after the US legalised same-sex marriage.

The terrorist group, which has published a number of graphic videos featuring the murder of supposed gay men, currently holds power across parts of Iraq, Syria and Libya.
