SYRIA. ISIS bride Shamima Begum made headlines in February when she pleaded to be let back into the UK. And now she’s at it again.
Since I left Baghuz I really regretted everything I did and I feel like I want to go back to the UK for a second chance to start my life over again. I was brainwashed. I came here believing everything that I had been told, while knowing little about the truths of my religion. I do regret having children in the caliphate.
I just wonder what “everything I did” entails. But it doesn’t really matter as all of this is lies. In February she said that the Manchester bombings were justified and that she didn’t regret joining ISIS. She had expected to find “the good life” in Syria and claimed she lived it. The war, the beheadings and the slaves didn’t faze her. In fact it was only when ISIS lost Raqqa and she had to flee from her home (which was probably stolen from the rightful owners) that the fun started to evaporate.
People should have sympathy towards me and everything I’ve been through. I didn’t know what I was getting into when I left. They don’t have any evidence against me doing anything dangerous.
Evidence? Quite a strange thing to bring up.
Her dutch husband, who is currently held in Syria by the Kurds and who claim to reject ISIS after fighting for them for 4,5 years, want them to return to the Netherlands to live their happily ever after. Maybe because he has been banned from entering the UK. But if he’s let into the Netherlands he will have to serve 6 years in jail for planning a terror attack against a rock festival. But I’m sure that they will fit right in considering how things are developing in the country.
