British IS teen calls for ‘mercy’

British IS teen calls for'mercy

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said Mr Javid's decision was "extreme" and she had "a right to return to Britain".

"I would like them to re-evaluate my case with a bit more mercy in their heart, you know".

Ms Begum, who has had her British citizenship revoked, was one of three schoolgirls to leave Bethnal Green to join the terror cult in 2015 and resurfaced heavily pregnant at a Syrian refugee camp last week.

Begum was 15 when she fled east London with two other friends to travel to Syria to marry IS fighters in 2015 at a time when the group's online recruitment program lured many impressionable young people to its self-proclaimed caliphate.

Speaking to The Sunday Telegraph from the al-Hol camp in Syria, Ms Begum said: "They are making an example of me".

The family said they have had no contact with Begum and had only learned she had given birth to a boy through media reports.

"I have watched Shamima on our televisions open her mouth and set fire to our nation's emotions", said her sister's letter.

In any case, Javid confirmed to the Commons that the rights of baby - he has been named Jarrah after one of the two children Shamima has lost because of malnutrition and lack of medical attention - would not be affected: "If a parent does lose their British citizenship, it does not affect the rights of their child".

The appeal for help in bringing Shamima Begum's baby son back to the United Kingdom will be one of the hardest parts of the letter politically for the Home Secretary Sajid Javid.

Trump publicly attacked Russian Federation probe over 1,100 times
As several experts have pointed out, that's tantamount to obstruction of justice, and perhaps the clearest example to date. The former official was asked on CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360" if he believes Trump may still be a Russian asset.

Her family's letter said they had made "every fathomable effort" to block her from entering IS territory.

Although it's unclear if Begum has committed a crime, her comments throw into sharp relief larger questions about how Western societies will deal with others who joined IS, but want to return to their home countries now that the extremist group is on the verge of collapse.

Since then, she's given several interviews with media in a bid to return to Britain with her newborn baby son.

Renu, the eldest sister of Shamima Begum, holds her sister's photo during a media interview at New Scotland Yard in London, on February 22, 2015.

Begum was blocked from re-entry into Britain by a Home Office decision to revoke her citizenship.

It had been implied that the United Kingdom government move was based on the presumption that Begum has the automatic right to dual Bangladeshi citizenship until the age of 21 by virtue of her parents' Bangladeshi heritage. "She went to Syria as a colonizer, several months after ISIS beheaded journalists and aid workers". "I don't think they are allowed to do that". Asked whether she could change or be rehabilitated, she said: "I am willing to change".

Begum also insisted that during her time with ISIS she was "just a housewife" and there was no evidence of her "doing anything risky".

"We would really like to know from Sajid Javid what practical steps he would take to assist a four- or five-day-old British citizen in hard circumstances to come back to the United Kingdom", said Akunjee.

The home secretary said he would not leave an individual stateless, which is illegal under global law.
