“She was crying and wants to get back to Britain but ISIS is preventing her because she is now a military wife. She told me she wish to go to her country.”
The Islamic State may be preventing her, but the British authorities are unlikely to do so. While I am banned from the country for opposing jihad terror, Britain has a steadily lengthening record of admitting jihad preachers without a moment of hesitation. Syed Muzaffar Shah Qadri’s preaching of hatred and jihad violence was so hardline that he was banned from preaching in Pakistan, but the UK Home Office welcomed him into Britain.
The UK Home Office recently admitted Shaykh Hamza Sodagar into the country, despite the fact that he has said: “If there’s homosexual men, the punishment is one of five things. One – the easiest one maybe – chop their head off, that’s the easiest. Second – burn them to death. Third – throw ’em off a cliff. Fourth – tear down a wall on them so they die under that. Fifth – a combination of the above.”
Meanwhile, the UK banned three bishops from areas of Iraq and Syria where Christians are persecuted from entering the country.
In light of all this, Sally Jones can probably return with no problem and is likely not even to face a prison sentence: 400 Islamic State jihadis have returned to UK, only 54 have been prosecuted.
“IS recruiter Sally Jones ‘wants to return to Britain’ from Raqqa,” by Sam Kiley, Sky News, July 3, 2017:
Sally Jones – the former punk rocker who became the leading female recruitment officer for IS, married a now-dead jihadist and took her son to Raqqa – wants to come home to Britain, it is been claimed.
That is, at least, the view of ‘Aisha’, the wife of another immigrant to the so-called Islamic caliphate now under Kurdish guard in a refugee camp in Syria.
In an exclusive interview with Sky News, Aisha (her real name is being withheld) insisted that very few immigrants to the ‘caliphate’ wanted to join the war. And that includes Sally Jones.
I asked her: “Did you meet many British people?”
She replied: “I know one – Umma Hussain al Britani”.
She used Jones’ nom de guerre. Junaid Hussain, was IS’ chief of digital jihad. He was killed by a US drone in 2015 while planning terror plots against the West.
Aisha went on: “She lost her husband in a battle battle last year. She has one boy.”
Jones’ British-born son is now about 12. He is believed to have been forced to execute prisoners.
This does not appear to have registered with Aisha, who said that Jones was “about 50 years and she’s very cute”.
And then the remarkable assertion that Jones – a woman the international coalition dropping bombs on IS, also known as ISIS, would gladly see in their sights – wants to go back to the UK.
“She was crying and wants to get back to Britain but ISIS is preventing her because she is now a military wife. She told me she wish to go to her country,” Aisha said.
This, of course, is a ludicrous claim – unless Jones has given up on her jihadi campaign and is now prepared to swap martyrdom for a lifetime in prison….
