All over the free world governments are bracing themselves for the return of jihad warriors from Syria: the prospect of hardened, trained jihadis coming back to their “homelands” and resuming jihad there has been raised all over Europe and in the U.S. And now a Dutch political party is calling for revocation of the passports not only of jihad terrorists who have gone from the Netherlands to Syria, but of the women who went there to be their consorts. This is a matter of societal survival. Will it be derided as “racism”?
“PVV: revoke ‘jihad brides’ passports,” by Maxime Zech for NL Times, March 5:
The PVV wants “jihad brides” from Gouda to lose their passports, and that they be apprehended and questioned upon their return from Syria.
MP for the PVV, Joram van Klaveren posed Parliamentary questions to Ministers Asscher, of Social affairs, and Opstelten, of Security and Justuce, about the muslim women who are traveling to war-torn Syria to support male fighters, the AD reports.
According to the AD, the women concerned include one Dutch, a Bosnian and three Moroccan women. The “jihad brides” frequently use social media to maintain contact with the Syrian fighters. Critics say that these women don’t understand that they often serve as mere lust object.
Van Klaveren wants to ban the phenomenon of jihad brides. If the women have two passports, then the Dutch one should be confiscated, the PVV urge.
In February, ten Dutch youths were denied passports as they were suspected of wanting to travel to Syria to join the Jihadist struggle. An initiative by National Coordinator Terrorism Suppression and Security (NCTV).
The first time the preventative measure of denying passports was used on suspected Jihadists was in January, when eight Syria-bound travelers were refused travel documents.
