BEIRUT, LEBANON (9:15 A.M.) – A U.S. national that joined the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) at the age of 19 wants to return home from Syria, CNN reported on Wednesday morning.

According to CNN, Hoda Muthana of Alabama is asking to return to the United States after joining the Islamic State approximately five years ago.

Muthana, in a handwritten note obtained by CNN, said that she was married to three men and lost two of her husbands during the Syrian conflict.

“When I left to Syria I was a naive, angry, and arrogant young woman. I thought that I understood my religious beliefs,” she said.

But after witnessing the devastation of war, including the death of two husbands, Muthana said she became disillusioned.

“During my years in Syria, I would see and experience a way of life and the terrible effects of war which changed me. Seeing bloodshed up close changed me. Motherhood changed me. Seeing friends, children, and the men I married dying changed me,” she continued.

“Seeing how different a society could be compared to the beloved America I was born and raised into changed me. Being where I was and seeing the (people) around me scared me because I realized I didn’t want to be a part of this. My beliefs weren’t the same as theirs,” Muthana added.

The U.S. government has not publicly commented on this case.

Aw..such a sad sob story.. to h**l with it..I hope america doesn’t take her back. She is part of an organization that slaughtered 10000s people in Iraq, Iran, Syria, Afganistan etc. She wants to live now after 3 times marriage and wants to go back and settle down as if nothing has happened. Send he to the iraqi judge. He will sentence her as per sharia law that she believes in, hanged to death.

Sharia should be banned at worldwide level, same for any religious “laws”. Fück the bigots.
Well, I think she could be recycled in a brothel on condition to become an apostate…

Yet Jews demand the US (and the world)does as they demand by twisting religion and Gods proclamation to curse Jews who disobey him. ‘The wages of sin is death’ has been turned into dualistic kabalistic t**d worship ‘do evil as if it’s good’. We are constantly lied to by people who pretend to not be religious but are in fact preaching hate to please there daemon worship belief structure. You imedietly go to s*x from violence as if it’s in your dna of the fallen ’Sanhedrin Calls on President Trump to Uphold Seven Noahide https://www.breakingisraelnews.com/82693/sanhedrin-blesses-trump-calls-president-uphold-seven-noahide-laws/ ‘Government Leaders Encourage Adherence to… Read more »

@Long Live Syria, @realDonaldTrump I have instructed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, and he fully agrees, not to allow Hoda Muthana back into the Country! 10:05 PM – Feb 20, 2019

“Hoda Muthana is not a US citizen and will not be admitted into the United States,” Mike Pompeo said in a statement on Wednesday.

p.s. The US have double standards. EU must take Jihadi the US say. But: “The United States announced it would refuse to take back the US-born woman, saying that she is no longer a citizen.”

Does anyone find it odd that saudis have not said anything about their ISIS citizens?

They’d better not go back to KSA : they may lose their heads… ISIS is banned in KSA and you don’t even need this to end a Chop-Chop-Square…

‘Shocked’ Shamima Begum says losing UK citizenship is ‘hard to swallow’ as ITV News shows her Home Office letter.

Good decision from the Britons!
Let’s hope all the IS creeps end with their citizenships revoked, any way, their “book” says they shall not live in the middle of the infidels, good, we agree! So… Buzz-off!

@ DBS I read that Article too in another news site. She has no remorse about the UK bombing, Iraq & Syria beheading and she was in fact attracted with the beheading videos and other good promotional stuff she saw & got attracted to join Daesh. She fully knew what was happening beheading rape torture etc and still believes that it is OK. Its good that the Britian Government stripped her citizenship. Let her rot in the refugee camp.

@ DBS, She is a mentally sick woman. “My family made it sound like it would be a lot easier for me to come back to the UK when I was speaking to them”

@Daeshbags-Sux, US and UK are Island monkeys with double standards. They want the EU to take Jihadi.

@Daeshbags-Sux, she’s only Bangladeshi.

“She does not have any legal basis, no valid US passport, no right to a passport, nor any visa to travel to the United States,” Mr Pompeo said.

And her lawyer says the opposite.

I think there is no point keep her in Syria since she admitted her mistakes. First and foremost it’s better to treat her as she is,woman and mother. I think if she was European descent they would have already allow her in.

Give the baby to a kafîr family that can’t have kids and let the Iraqis or Assad punish her.
And I’m not to let those of European descent back.

Then you can go soft on the male daesh members too after all they are also same as per your logic a Man and Father. Ignore their atrocities as they did what Abu Bakr asked them to do so. Common..no daesh group member whether male or female should be shown any mercy. Every one will now come up with a story that they were just cooks, drivers, janitors cleaning the toilets and no way committed any crimes.

@Long Live Syria, yes. I think that also.

They all gave their body to the Caliphate and swore fealty.

Yes US double standards all the way. But not discriminating against non Europeans.

The US are demanding that other countries take Jiahdi. And in most cases they are also only citizens or children of recent immigrants and not natives. Plus they swore fealty to the caliphate.
