UKIP Leader Gerard Batten has said that an ISIS convert who left the UK to join so-called Islamic State, should NOT be allowed to return home.
Shamima Begum from Bethnal Green, married a Dutch convert to Islam in Syria and spoke of being “unfazed” when seeing severed heads in a bin for the first time.
UKIP Leader Gerard Batten said, “By her actions, Ms Begum has rejected British and Western cultural standards by joining Islamic State. It is unclear whether she took part in fighting herself; however, she displays no remorse or regrets for her actions.
“Britain must send a zero-tolerance message to anyone who leaves the country to join criminal terrorist organisations like Islamic State. Ms Begum should remain in Syria to face justice because that is where Islamic State have committed their crimes.”
Speaking to The Times of London, Begum who was aged 15 when she fled Britain to back ISIS, along with two others to join the ‘fight’ against the West and our values by marrying an ISIS fighter.
She has been found in a refugee camp in Syria and now wants to return so that her unborn child can be saved, despite showing not a single shred of remorse.
Begum even admitted that she is ‘weak’ for wanting to return to the West, and added that “seeing a severed head” in a bin in the ISIS stronghold “did not faze her at all”.
In a sinister statement, Begum said: “I am not the same silly little school girl who ran away from Bethnal Green four years ago.” and admitted that “I don’t regret coming here”
She described her life as “normal” in former ISIS capital, Raqqa despite “bombing and stuff.”
The only reason she wants to return is so she can use Britain’s National Health Service to “save her unborn child.” after two of her ISIS children died in Syria.
