Ah, young love. If you think 15 is too early to get married, you don’t know much about the background of Islam. Now, a couple of silly little Austrian girls are getting a very harsh history lesson.
The teenage girls who abandoned their families in Austria to become jihadis for ISIS feel they’ve made a terrible mistake by joining the barbaric lifestyle and they want to come home.
Samra Kesinovic, 17, and Sabina Selimovic, 15, are believed to be married, pregnant and living in the Islamic State-controlled city of Raqqa in northern Syria, Central European News reports…
The change of heart is a much different tune than the note they left behind for their parents when they fled back in April, which read: “Don’t look for us. We will serve Allah — and we will die for him…”
They have contacted their loved ones and told them they are sick of living with the Islamic State jihadis, but they also said they don’t feel they can flee from their unwanted new life because too many people now associate them with ISIS.
Getting the cold shoulder back home really isn’t the main problem, is it? The main problem is keeping their heads on their shoulders. But then, if they understood that, they wouldn’t have done such a stupid thing in the first place.
If they try to leave, they won’t have to worry about getting the stink-eye in the streets of Vienna, because they’ll be killed in the name of Allah. After they produce another generation of jihadists, of course. If they’re lucky, their beheadings won’t be put online for propaganda purposes.
It’s sad that they made this decision, but they did. There are no takebacks in radical Islam. Once you’re in it, you’re in it for life. However long that may be.
