Everybody seems to be assuming that she must be guilty of some criminal activity. That seems highly questionable. Even if it is correct that she still holds the most extreme and abhorrent views, that isn't in itself criminal. She didn't fight for Isis, and she has no kind of official status within the caliphate "State".

In fact it is far from clear what her actual attitudes are, even if that was particularly relevant. Being hardened against the sight dead bodies or parts of dead bodies in the street - "not being fazed" - is quite a common reaction in some circumstances. We can't undo our past mistakes. When Edith Piaf sang "non regrette risen" she wasn't saying she was happy about things that had happened and things that she'd done, but that they were a fixed part of her.

This shouldn’t whole affair shouldn’t be treated as a big deal.
