Ultimately, Begum is a distraction. The main issue is not terrorists’ brides, but terrorists themselves. Where are they? | Conservative Home


There are three main takes on Sajid Javid’s recent decision to revoke Shamima Begum’s British citizenship.  The first is tabloid. (Good on yer, Saj!)  The second is broadsheet.  (Frightful! Uncivilised!)  The third is merely cynical.  The Home Secretary, this view has it, wins either way.  If the courts uphold his decision, he gets the credit.  And if they don’t, those limp-wristed, bleeding-heart, liberal elite judges get the blame.  Either way, he wins – and up go his ratings in the ConservativeHome Cabinet League Table.

We are as world-weary as the next media outlet.  So we suspect that the impact of this decision on his future leadership prospects will have floated across Javid’s mind.  But one soon grasps, on trying to think it all through, that there is much more to his decision than that.

Let’s start by focusing on Begum herself – this exploited, warped, unrepentant, atypical and seemingly not-very-bright teenager who is evidently as much of a stranger to British norms as she is to the traditional, classical Islam.  She fled Britain when she was 15, married a Dutch jihadi, and reportedly now has a baby, two of her children already being dead.

  1. Is Begum really a distraction, she maybe or she maybe not, but who wishes to take that chance, for all terrorists are not male and not all are active.

    What better way to import terrorism into the UK or any country, by way of a seemingly innocent, unaware convert to Islam, a Jihadist Bride with a new born child. For who knows her true feelings or intentions.

    There are also many forms of Islam and many persons who are Islamic will never, ever become a terrorist or even a terrorisy sympathiser.

    Lets face it there are many forms of terrorists from all religions, but that does not mean that everyone who worships these many religions are terrorists or even fanatics.

    We should encompass all religions and only deal with the fanatics and/or terrorists when they arise.
