Quick Hits – Episode 215: Why Canada’s decision to repatriate ISIS women jihadis is a bad idea

Canada is not alone in having seen its citizens go abroad to join ISIS.  Several dozen did so and a number died for the group.  A number were rounded up and housed in refugee camps like Al Hol and there have been calls on governments to bring them home.  After dragging its feet for years, Canada has announced it is bringing home 19 ISIS women and their children.  This is wrong and here’s why.

Phil, I would argue that In spite of the role these Canadian woman played with ISIS, they need to be repatriated and face Justice. Their children are innocent and collateral damage of their parents actions. Failing to bring the kids home and ensure they’re educated to respect our values and democratic system, are we risking that they may as young adults become terrorist and resent Canada for abandoning them?
Food for thought!

I am sure you read (or even Tweeted) this already, if not:

“Recently 400 ISIS operatives with European citizenship, were chosen to return to Europe on a secret mission. The operation started three and a half years ago (mid 2019) with the goal to return to Europe without their real documents and to lead new terror cells on the continent. They were chosen due to their loyalty to ISIS, leadership, achievements in battlefield, and radical perspectives.”
