A British mother who left to join ISIS with her four children has pleaded for return from Syria, claiming that he had never seen his beheaded.
West London’s Nicole Jack and her daughters aged seven, nine and 12 are being held at Camp Rose along with thousands of families of ISIS fighters.
talking to BBCMs Jack said her family was “out of sight, out of mind” from the British public and that the UK government should not erase them “under the carpet”.
However, the Home Office told the BBC that its priority was to ensure Britain’s security.
Ms Jack claims she does not pose a security risk, despite being under ISIS rule for three years from 2015 to 2018.
By 2015, ISIS was already publicly known for its brutal methods including beheading and, unlike other UK jihadist brides, she was an adult when she visited.
Asked if he was aware of the brutality of the terrorist group, he said, “I have never seen beheading in my life.”
In October 2015, the mother of three left her home in London to join ISIS in Iraq with her husband and then four children.
Ms. Jack told her family that she was returning to Somalia to start a new life.
She told the BBC that her husband Hussein Ali threatened to leave the family if she did not accompany him.
The following year, he died fighting for ISIS.
The 34-year-old mother married another ISIS soldier and they moved to Syria in 2017.
She became pregnant with triplets and is said to have miscarried the first before the second stillborn and the third child survived only three weeks.
Six weeks later, Ms. Jack’s ten-year-old son and her new husband were playing in the garden when an air raid took place – killing them both.
Ms Jack told the BBC she faced the loss of her son with the thought that he was “in a better place”.
Meanwhile, in London, Ms. Jack’s mother, Charlene Jack Henry, wants her grandchildren to be allowed back to the UK as it is “not fair” for them to “stay in this place”.
‘face the consequences’
Nurse Charlene believes her daughter should be allowed back so that she can face the consequences in the UK.
Ms. Jack was brought up Christian, but converted to Islam after meeting her first husband while they both worked at Pizza Hut in Hammersmith, London.
The mother told the BBC she does not know whether she now has British citizenship, but will not let her children go without them as they will not be “in a stable condition”.
Ms Jack is in the same camp as Shamima Begum – a fellow Londoner who left Bethnal Green when she was just 15 for Syria.
In February, the Begum lost her legal battle to return to the UK to appeal in court to have her British citizenship removed.
The Supreme Court unanimously ruled in favor of the government, saying the Begum could return to the UK for a court case to retrieve her British passport to protect the public.
In pronouncing the verdict, Lord Reid defended the previous decision of the Court of Appeal and stated that he had made his own assessment of the requirements of the Court of Appeal. [national] Security’ without any ‘relative evidence’.
He said: “The right to a fair trial does not override all other considerations such as the safety of the public.
“If there is an important public interest that makes a fair trial of a case impossible, the courts cannot hear it normally.”
In 2019, the then Home Secretary Sajid Javid revoked her citizenship on national security grounds after she was found pregnant in a refugee camp and announced she wanted to return to the UK.
She has since been stuck in northern Syria.
