Thread Name: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
Subject: RE: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
The refugee camp is several hours away from the last-ditch fighting and is heavily guarded. Conditions in the camp are next to intolerable, with factions forming among the refugees leading to bullying and beatings up. We don't know what this young woman has done but so far she has not been tried for any offence, and she and her child are in harm's way. She is a citizen of our supposedly civilised country and it is an outrage that she can't come home. We should be flexing every muscle to get her back and I simply won't accept that it isn't possible. I suppose that with confounded bigoted thickheads such as Javid at the helm there's no political will to get her back, so we'll keep hearing the cod excuses as to how getting her home would be "too dangerous" and that having her here "would pose too much of a risk." Bullshit. Islamophobic bullshit too, and we're hearing it in this thread as well.
