Father of unrepentant ISIS jihadi bride blames UK for letting her go to Syria without a passport

It is no surprise that Ahmed Ali, despite his magnificent corona of wise old white hair, is blaming British authorities: for Islamic supremacists, it is always the infidel’s fault, no matter what. But the inevitable question is this: how did young Shamima get the idea that it would be great to join the Islamic State? It is unlikely in the extreme that Ahmed Ali raised her to believe in that unicorn on which the West has placed so much hope, that mythical moderate, peaceful Islam. And even in the unlikely event that he did, why was Shamima’s moderate, peaceful Islam unable to withstand challenge from the twisted, hijacked version of Islam that Shamima presumably encountered on the Internet?

Anyway, whatever responsibility Ahmed Ali bears for Shamima’s attachment to jihad terror, which is likely to be considerable, the British government is still at fault for letting her board an international flight without a passport. Why was that allowed? What on earth were the officials who let her go thinking? It’s likely that they thought that stopping her would be “Islamophobic,” the worst offense any British official can commit these days.

“ISIS bride Shamima Begum’s father blames Britain for letting her flee to Syria without a passport as he calls for a U-turn on decision to scrap her citizenship,”MailOnline, March 6, 2019 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

The father of British ISIS bride Shamima Begum has blamed Britain for letting her flee to Syria when she did not even have a passport.

Begum, now 19, left East London’s Bethnal Green with two friends to travel to Syria to join ISIS in 2015, and has now resurfaced at a refugee camp in Syria saying she wants to go home with her newborn son.

Her apparent lack of remorse for ISIS atrocities, including the Manchester Arena bombing in 2017, has triggered criticism in Britain and Home Secretary Sajid Javid scrapped her citizenship.

But her father, Ahmed Ali, has called for a u-turn on the decision so she can return to the UK and be punished if it was determined she had committed a crime.

The 60-year-old also questioned how his daughter had been able to flee from the country without a passport despite British immigration having ‘the most informed system in the world’.

Mr Javid had previously said he would not make a decision that would render a person stateless while Begum’s family has insisted she is not a dual citizen. The case is pending in the courts.

Mr Ali, told The Associated Press in an interview in his Bangladeshi village that he would still request that the British government allow his daughter to come back.

‘My child was only 15 years old when she fled, she was immature,’ said Ali, who lives in the northeastern Bangladeshi district of Sunamganj with his second wife. The area is 112 miles northeast of Dhaka, the capital.

‘I would ask the British government not to cancel her citizenship, to return her citizenship, and if she is guilty, bring her back to Britain and give her punishment there,’ he said.

Mr Ali said he moved to England in 1975 and returned to his village in Bangladesh in 1990 to marry his first wife, Asma Begum.

The couple, who returned to England, has four daughters, with Shamima the youngest.

Mr Ali later returned to Bangladesh and got married for a second time. Most recently, he came to Bangladesh two months ago to escape the U.K. winter.

He criticised the British authorities for failing to properly deal with the issue of students who have fled to join the ISIS.

‘One girl went there a month ago, most likely a month ago. The British government should have been alarmed about the matter, and they should have also inquired at the school to find out how she fled, since she was a student,’ he said.

‘Then a month later, three more students fled. The authorities should investigate at the school why these students fled. They were not adults.’

‘The British immigration system is very informed, the most informed system in the world. I always say how did (Shamima) get there using another one’s passport? She doesn’t even have her own passport. These matters should be investigated as well,’ Mr Ali said.

He had initially told the Mail on Sunday in an interview last month that he agreed with the Home Secretary, saying: I know she is stuck there but that’s because she has done actions that made her get stuck like this.’

Mr Ali then recanted, and claimed Britain is ‘duty-bound’ to allow the 19-year-old to return to the UK….
