Thread Name: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
Subject: RE: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
Thought I'd posted this - hpe it wasn't deleted - that would be censorship
In my opinion the fact that this young woman was a child and was almost certainly groomed should be a major consideration in this case
The terms 'Jihadist' and 'terrorist' are long overdue for examination - it has been admitted that they are being misused   
Britain shares a large responsibility for the rise of Assad and his thugs - selling riot equipment to suppress the Arab Spring protests, selling chemicals capable of manufacturing weapons, then voting not to become involved in the atrocities of the Civil War that ensued
Young people, possibly this young woman, became =involved, not out of religious fervour bu to fill the gap the West left when they allowed Assad to do what he is still doing
It little behooved them to punish one of his possible victims
