Just two days ago (a day before the hostage taking that is still on-going as of this writing) Australians learned that two more Muslim young women, wannabe jihadi brides successfully left Australia to join ISIS. An earlier Australian jihadist was killed in Syria and her father now blames the Australian government for not being able to stop her!
I say let them go, and never let them back in to any civilized country.
From the Daily Telegraph (hat tip: ‘Pungentpeppers’):
A TEENAGER and her 20-year-old friend have become the first Australian women to “go it alone” to join terrorists in Syria and offer themselves as potential jihadi brides, intelligence agencies believe.
The girls, Hodan, 18 and Hafsa, 20, who are believed to have links with the Somali community, flew out of Sydney in the past fortnight to go overseas and are believed to have lied to their families about why they were travelling. The Sunday Telegraph has chosen not to publish their last names.
While there have been numerous cases of young Australian men being radicalised by Islamic State recruiters and women joining their husbands or boyfriends in the Syrian war zone, this is the first case of young women travelling independently to travel to the war zone.
If they travel to Islamic State’s stronghold in northern Syria, the province of al-Raqqa, the pair will face a jail term of up to 10 years if they ever return to Australia. [Don’t let them in and save the taxpayers the cost of a trial and incarceration.—ed]
Foreign Minister Julie Bishop said fresh reports of teenagers travelling to the region was of great concern.
Islamic State has issued a worldwide recruitment drive to secure brides for jihadists fighters.
Murdered Australian woman Amira Karroum, who grew up in Brisbane, died after she travelled to Syria with her husband.
Adding insult to Australia’s injury, the father of Amira Karroum wants to sue the government of Australia for letting her leave the country! It’s just as I said about Sweden yesterday, let them in out of humanitarian zeal and then get kicked in the teeth—when will leaders of first world countries get it? Here is the recent story at the Daily Telegraph. Then watch the obnoxious father, Mohamed Karroum, on A Current Affair.
Come on! We must stop the Hijra (migration) jihad!
