British female jihadists could return from Syria and attack UK, experts warn

British women who travel to Syria but are barred from fighting in the conflict, could be tempted to return home and carry out terror attacks, experts have warned.

Around 550 Western women have joined Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isil) but are prevented from engaging in acts of violence by the group’s strict religious code.

However researchers have found evidence that some of the women are keen to become active jihadists and may seek to return to the UK and other western countries in order to carry out terror outrages.

A study by the London-based Institute for Strategic Dialogue, found many of those who had travelled to the region were becoming increasingly desensitised to the violence around them.

    It is always that way…you are desensitized when you are the one perpetrating the outrages, but just wait…you will wake up pretty damn fast when you have armed, trained men looking to end your life.

  • Nothing to worry about here. Diversity is our strength.

    And Islam is a religion of peace.

    A ten year stint in an internment camp on a cold wet island somewhere north of Scotland should be enough to correct their muslamic “mistaken assumptions”.

    “but are prevented from engaging in acts of violence by the group’s strict religious code”

    but ISIS has no issue with issuing them explosive belts and having them blow themselves up.
