Stop pitying British schoolgirls joining Islamic State – they’re not victims

The latest British teen girls to join Islamic State are not ‘missing’ – they’ve joined a murderous cult of their own volition, argues Emma Barnett

All weekend a triptych of British girls’ faces have been staring out at the nation from newspapers and TV screens.
Shamima Begum (15), Amira Abase (15) and Kadiza Sultana (16) have legged it to join Islamic State in Syria. They eloped last week and by now are probably shacked up with a hipster jihadi, locked in their homes and expected to crack on with popping out a few kids to populate the Caliphate.


Amen Sister!
