The outrage is justified. The enemedia in the West never saw a traitor or an enemy of freedom that it didn’t like. They have been publishing sob story after sob story about Shamima Begum, trying to shame the UK into allowing her back into the country. She left to fight with a savage, brutal enemy against the USA. There is no way she should be allowed to return. She gave up her hopes of citizenship when she turned traitor and joined up with the Islamic State in their war to destroy America in the cause of Islam. If the Islamic State had prevailed, she’d be happily lopping off infidel heads.
“Outrage in Syria, Iraq as ISIS members treated as celebrities in west,” by Seth J. Frantzman, Jerusalem Post, February 19, 2019 (thanks to Christian):
Mahmoud Sheikh Ibrahim has seen the worst of ISIS crimes over his years working with journalists covering the conflict in Syria and Iraq.
Shocked to see the numerous interviews by Western publications with ISIS members in Syria and the sympathy some have garnered in the West, he emphasizes that these people don’t regret joining ISIS.
Ibrahim is one of many in Iraq and Syria expressing bewilderment at the sudden attention “ISIS brides” and other ISIS members are getting in the media.
Last week, The Times of London published an interview with Shemima Begum, a British woman who traveled to Syria in 2015 to join ISIS and married a Dutch convert. After her first interview she has become a celebrity in UK media, with Sky News and the BBC sitting down with her in a displaced persons camp in Syria.
According to reports, she also gave birth to a child between giving her first interview and speaking to Sky News on Sunday. She said “it was nice” at first under ISIS. Executions were fine, “Islamically it was allowed,” she said….
As Western media asks if the ISIS members should be allowed to come home, locals are responding.
“Why? So her Salafist buddies back home can start carrying out attacks because they’re emboldened by someone who is in ISIS and will tell them stories about her time in Syria?” one asks on Twitter.
“ISIS members will get away with it because the victims are not Westerners, live in a far away land and don’t speak English,” writes Jenan Moussa of Araba Al Aan TV.
Ali Y. Al-Baroodi, who survived the ISIS occupation of Mosul, was shocked to see how ISIS members described their enjoyable life over the last few years before they were defeated.
“It was hell on Earth and every single one of them made it so,” he said.
Treated like “second-class humans” by the foreigners who came to occupy Iraq and Syria, he sarcastically wonders whether the ISIS members now pretending to be victims want the locals to “apologize for disturbing their stay here.” He tweets that the ISIS members are not innocent and seeks to remind the world of the missing Yazidi women, “demolished cities and hundreds of mass graves, [and] thousands of orphans and widows.”
