Families of British ISIS fighters launch new group to beat stigma & trauma

Families of British jihadists say they are victims who suffer social isolation and trauma. Now they are launching their own support group to help cope with losing loved ones who have fled to the Middle East to fight for Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS).

Fighters like Thomas Evans, 25, left their families to join the ranks of IS, exposing their relatives to the scrutiny of police and intelligence services, as well as the stress of dealing with being related to a terrorist. Evans was killed in 2015.

    Fake news: “I’m traumatised by being unable to kill infidels at any time like I could in Syria, at least until I get reestablished again here in Canada. My family is traumatised by the stigma of me being a wicked cold blooded murderer and rapist while I was in Syria. They are going to continue to be unfairly traumatised by their association with me once I have reestablished myself again here in Canada and continue on my behaviour first practised in Syria. Both my family and myself each deserve a C$10.5 million ‘Standard Jihadi Kkadr Payment’ which will undoubtedly help me become reestablished in Canada.”

    maybe if you had beaten little Thomas more maybe he wouldn’t have joined a death cult and gone on a murderous rapefest in Syria.

    Poor isis … beheading, raping and torturing is hard. Every single western progressive – actively or passively – thought criminal that supports the war criminals should be hanging from a streetlamp.
