After ISIS collapsed (and by the way, where is the widespread celebration of that fact?), many of the ISIS women and their children remained trapped in refugee camps in Syria because, understandably, nobody wants them.
A widespread position among these women seems to be the following:
“We made a mistake, but everyone in the world makes mistakes,” she said. “How long can we pay the price for a mistake? For our whole lives?”
The statement comes not from a pouty teenager but from a 44-year-old woman. Nobody expects great adjustment from a woman whose idea of fun is to join ISIS, yet the sense of entitlement is quite striking. Not only doesn’t everybody in the world make “mistakes” of this caliber but everybody who is an adult is, indeed, aware of having to live with the consequences of their actions for their whole lives. Usually, people get the message by their early teenage years.
