Subject: RE: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
"It is not a crime, in the UK, to marry an Isis fighter, or travel to the caliphate. The Australians have made it a crime to travel to certain regions, but a similar provision in the UK is only just about to become law. It is a crime to have aided and abetted a proscribed terrorist organisation. But sentences for that have been far too short to reflect what is arguably Ms Begumís betrayal of her country by helping its enemies. Those enemies seek to destroy our democracy, our human rights and our people."

You could perhaps argue the jihadi bride was a victim when first departing Britain but that argument falls apart when after 4 years the "victim" cries help only because as a hardened jihadist her caliphate is evaporating around her ears and turning into piles of rubble.
Forgiveness starts with remorse!
