ISIS Wants Women

Black Widows of ISIS

I do admire how President Obama FINALLY came on and spoke strongly against Russia and ISIS. It was long overdue. I liked Joe Biden even spoke with more anger and how America will follow ISIS to the "Gates of Hell". The US just needs to have a constant bombing on Raqqa inside Syria to destroy their base.

The only problem is that if the USA is unwilling to bomb ISIS inside Syria where their base is, how can we follow them to Hell, because Syria IS hell. Meanwhile, the ISIS propaganda machine uses Internet and print material to attract English speakers, whether from the US, England, Australia and so on. Yes, they want discontented 15-30 yr. old. men and women with foreign passports. There are a lot of discontented young people that are gullible in thinking the ISIS way will make their life mean more. When they arrive, ISIS welcomes them, uses them as propaganda, train them, yet, they do not fully trust them. So, these foreign idiots are used as "cannon fodder" in attacks in the Syria and Iraq by ISIS in the name of Allah!

Now, comes the story of a sweet and happy Scottish girl, who up until age 15, was by all accounts, a normal teen girl who liked Cold Play, boys, makeup etc. Her name is Aqsa Mahmood, a girl who grew up in Glasgow, Scotland. But, ironically, ISIS does not use the female sex as suicide bombers, but as brides who marry into ISIS and then become pregnant to further the jihad cause. This is the role of women in ISIS.

For Aqsa, who left home at age 20 to go to Syria to join ISIS, she quickly married a holy warrior. She uses social media to promote ISIS and how women in it are treated with honor and respect under Sharia law. She encourages her 2000 followers to come join and marry a warrior.

What is most bothersome is that she was not a unhappy, discontented teen. She came from a well-off Pakistani family and lived in a $800,000 home and went to private schools costing $6000 a year. Her parents gave her everything (perhaps she did not feel loved, though). According to her friends, the conversion began at 15. Her parents noticed she secluded herself in her room and constantly online in forums. Of course, they were not aware they were jihadist forums. After High School, she started studying diagnostic radiotherapy but told her friends she wanted to go to Syria to remove President Assad.

Then she vanished without notice. At first, her parents waited and then finally called the police, thinking the worse happened (that she was dead). Then, they got a message from her-her last communication to them.

According to British intelligence, there are at least 50 British women who have been recruited by ISIS. Most are married and pregnant. Maybe some will be used a suicide bombers. ISIS is the new Hitler-like organization. Hitler tried to create the master race also. He brainwashed many German women to become pregnant by blonde haired-blue eye men selected for this purpose. By creating content specifically targeting female jihadi supporters, the Islamic State is able to establish a pipeline to assist Western women in traveling to Syria to marry jihadi fighters and contribute to the formation of their new society. Crazy!

Regardless, the Islamic State has opened a “marriage bureau” in the northern Syrian town of Al Bab for women who want to wed jihadist fighters in territory they control, The foreign women travel to Turkey and migrate into Syria to join ISIS and start a new generation.

Memories are so short. This Scottish woman may have it good, but for the vast majority of women it is hell. It seems so many have forgotten that women are stoned, burned, stabbed and shot to death for even looking at another man or for expressing an opinion other than her husband's opinion. The immutable truth is that, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” (George Santayana, The Life of Reason, 1905")
