UK: Family of 12 suspected of decamping to Syria

“…According to Balaal Khan, a lawyer acting for the fathers of the missing children, sisters Khadija Dawood, 30, Sugra Dawood, 34, and Zohra Dawood, 33, left Britain on May 28 to go on an Islamic pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia.

It is feared 12 members of the Dawood family, from Bradford in West Yorkshire, travelled to Syria where it is understood one of their relatives is fighting for extremists.

    “It is feared…” Isn’t the words I’d have chosen…

    • Petey

      That was precisely what I noticed too. How about the more rational “It is hoped” or, if one insists on being ornery, “It is believed”?

      • Alain

        I had the same reaction.

        • DVult

          Or we are happy to announce that …

    • Clausewitz

      Yeah I’m pretty happy about it myself. Bonne Chance targets.

    • Paulla

      Me neither. It’s actually like a dream come true.

    • Rosenmops

      The only thing I’m afraid of is that they will be allowed to return to the UK.

  • tom_billesley

    Encore, encore …

    • Alain

      Yes, let them go by the boat and plane loads and the sooner the better.

    • Clausewitz

      Let’s hope this sets a trend.

  • Allan

    And the downside is……??

    • Seneca III

      There are some as far as I can determine as I tend first to look on the bright side. Thus from my perspective it’s nine less amounts of child benefit to be taxed for and it’s twelve less feral, consanguineous breeding units to produce even more of the same genetically retarded spawn for me to have to support,

      However I must admit that this scenario does suggest that the bearded, head banging retards they have left behind will, now that they have none of their own to physically and sexually abuse on a daily basis, have to either bang their heads harder, indulge in more goat sex or, as is most likely, start raping yet even more white female children.

      Bit of a hard call, this one, when one thinks about it, but if we could convince them to depart en masse and sort of de-enrich us that is something I would most happily pay for. Indeed I would be quite prepared to also fund the the repatriation every one of them to whatever third world hell hole they or their immediate ancestors came from.

      They’re still on British welfare.

    That’s 200 postal votes !

      I’m going to borrow that one for the next federal election.

    With any luck they can start a trend and all their neighbours can follow them.

  • Drunk_by_Noon

    I bet their welfare checks are still clearing.
    Who is now living in their subsidized council flat?

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      The other four families they lived with?

  • Waffle

    Mamma, don’t let your babies grow up to be . . . Oh dammit. Forget it!!

  • FactsWillOut

    ISIS is now a state. I suggest we open relations with them, like we have with the Saudis. Beheaders are really great folk, once you get to know them.
    Also, why is it a crime to go to Syria now? Are we the new USSR?

  • Hard Little Machine

    Awesome. Half can be raped and the other half can be detonated.

  • simus1

    Given the number of “useless muslim girl children” involved in the “pilgrimage”, a cynic might tend to suspect that they will all be “married as per accepted sharia islamic custom to suitable jihadi spouses if and when they finally resurface back in Blighty months or years from now.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      The families could be selling their girls.

  • Canadian

    We, in Canada, aren`t so lucky. Our animals stay.
