A German woman who allegedly took her young daughter to watch a woman being stoned while in Islamic State-held territory in Syria has been charged with membership in the extremist group and other offenses, according to Breitbart News.
The woman was arrested at Frankfurt airport when she arrived on Oct. 7 among a group of women and children repatriated from a camp in northeastern Syria where suspected IS members were held. She was charged with membership in a foreign terrorist organization, recruiting members for the group, a crime against humanity, the abduction of a minor, violating her duties of care and education, and approving of crimes.
The suspect traveled to Syria in late 2014 along with a 16-year-old girl she had persuaded to join her. They said she took her 4-year-old daughter, against the wishes of the child’s father.
In Syria, she married several IS members and brought up her daughter and two sons born in Syria in line with IS ideology. At one point she took the girl – then age 6 – to the stoning of a woman and showed her execution videos.
It’s incomprehensible that a woman would subject her child to such evils of Islamic fundamentalism — but it’s no doubt “Islamophobic” to point that out.
