Subject: RE: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
I agree wholeheartedly that this country has humanitarian and measured attitudes, and an impartial justice system which would guarantee a fair investigation and/or trial if necessary for Shamima. We don't flog or stone 'bad women' or implement the death penalty, lynch people or put them in Guantanamo-type 'facilities'.

I think she should be repatriated as soon as possible, but must be prepared to 'face the music'.

When I try to remember what I was like at the age of fifteen, I can't imagine what I'd have got up to if I'd been brought up as she had in the 21st Century, a daughter of immigrant muslim parents in E London. I might well have gone for the 'adventure' of idealistically 'serving my faith' and being the 'wife' of some hopefully attractive and romantic 'warrior'. The three girls probably egged each other on and found the whole thing tremendously exciting and 'worthy'.

The discussion on here has been very interesting and compassionate.
Let's hope it all turns out for the best for the young woman.
