A glimpse into the mindset that leads to Islamic honor killing. This woman is striving to be obedient to Allah: hence her niqab and her presence in the Islamic State. The idea of slitting her daughter’s throat if she discovers her daughter has a boyfriend is not inconsistent with her understanding of obedience to Allah, which includes violence toward unbelievers and believers who get out of line.
“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….
Aisha revealed that her Moroccan husband had travelled to IS before the caliphate was even declared by Abu Bakr al Baghdadi in June 2015. She said that he had been a dealer in ruins and antiquities in Europe and had been told by a friend that he could buy them cheaply in the caliphate.
The extremist regime drew heavily for funding on the sale of stolen antiquities and taxed criminal gangs who omitted the landscape under its control with illegal digs.
Aisha insisted she was not among the violent supporters of IS. But when I told her my adult daughter “has a boyfriend”, she said: “If she was my daughter I would cut her throat.”
Then added: “I’m only joking.”
One can only hope so.
