‘We didn’t come here to kill’: Hundreds of ISIS wives, scarred kids stranded in UN-backed Iraqi camp

The constant fear of revenge and bleak hopes of returning home are the factors that shape the lives of former wives of Islamic State militants with whom RT met at an Iraqi army camp. Many claim they only followed their terrorist husbands along an ill-fated route.

Hundreds of women, mostly of Turkish, central Asian, Russian and European origin, and the children they bore to Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS,ISIL) fighters that were killed, captured or forced to flee after government forces liberated the city of Tal Afar have been housed in a UN-sponsored camp in Iraq.

    Thank goodness the Toronto Star and Crescent is too busy worried about the Rohingya in Burma or readers would be treated to a daily barrage of articles and Op Ed’s lobbying for the importation of these illiterate women and children. Does Canada Goose make kid’s sizes?

    You know that hypothetical situation where if you could go back in time to kill Hitler as a child, would you do it?

    Well here you are, there’s hundreds of little Hitlers and what are you going to do?

    Some decisions and actions you cannot recover from. Jumping from an airplane, overdosing on medications, turning left….
    ISIS is Islamic terrorism, you were part of it. You want sympathy? I’m all out.

  • Leave. Them. There.

      ‘ wives of Islamic State ‘…….that would make great reality TV ….

      • That would be haram because women on TV is as bad as having a TV.
