Some Muslim parents would NOT report their children if they travelled to Syria to join ISIS because they don’t trust the police, claims new study

More than 800 young British Muslims have travelled to Syria and Iraq to fight with ISIS jihadists who have carried out beheadings, massacres and rapes.

The study of 20 parents by academics at Birmingham City University adds fresh weight to mounting concerns that large numbers of Muslim families are turning a blind eye when their children are radicalised.

It follows a poll in April which found two in three would not tell police if they knew that someone was involved in supporting terrorism in Syria – equating to around 2million of the nearly 3million British Muslims.

    It’s a BS excuse that parents “don’t trust police” — most of them support ISIS, There’s always an excuse for not assimilating to western values.

    Presumably, these parents can be charged with obstruction of justice if they cover up for their offspring.

      We need the “Family Accountability Act of 2017” whereas noncitizen family members can be summarily removed from the U.S. for the criminal acts of their children and siblings.
      Just get rid of them.

    Then why are we condemned when we don’t trust Muslums?

    • Alain

      Don’t trust them and don’t care if some are unhappy about it. Trust is earned by the person’s behaviour, and based on Muslim behaviour only a fool would trust them.

    “…large numbers of Muslim families are turning a blind eye…”

    They’re not blind, they see Islam very clearly.
