A British mother and former Pizza Hut activist who moved to join Islamic State has urged Britain to allow her to return from Syria with her daughters aged seven, nine and 12.
Nicole Jack of Shepherd’s Bush, west London, and her children are being detained at Camp Rose, where relatives of Isis suspects are held.
Ms Jack, 34, is being held in the same camp as Isis bride Shamima Begum – a fellow Londoner whose UK citizenship was revoked by Sajid Javid in 2019 and will not be allowed to return – but He insisted that he was not a security threat. to Britain.
He said BBC News That his family was ‘out of sight, out of mind’ and should not be swept ‘under the carpet’ by Britain, adding: ‘I have never seen a head to head in my life.’
However, the Home Office told MailOnline today that ISIS “committed brutal crimes including killing and beheading innocent civilians”.
The mother left London to join Isis in Iraq in October 2015 with her husband and then four children, telling her family that she was moving to Somalia to start a new life.
She claimed that her husband Hussain Ali threatened to break up the family if she did not travel with her, but he died fighting for the terrorist group the next year.
Ms Jack then married another foreign ISIS recruit, Adil de Montrichard of Trinidad and Tobago, also known as Adil Roberts, and they moved to Syria in 2017.
She then became pregnant with three children, but the first child is said to have been aborted, before the second was stillborn and the third lived for only three weeks.
Six weeks later, Mr. de Montrichard was in the garden with Ms. Jack’s ten-year-old son Isaac when they were both killed in a suspected coalition air raid.

She told BBC News she knew her son was in a ‘better place’ now, but added: ‘Anything else can put us on the verge of breaking up and that’s what I can’t risk’.
Ms. Jack was brought up as a Christian, but converted to Islam after meeting Mr. Ali while they were both working at a Pizza Hut outlet in Hammersmith, West London.
She doesn’t know if she still has British citizenship, but she won’t let her children go to Britain without her because they ‘won’t be in a stable condition’.
In London, the children’s grandmother Charlene Jack Henry, a nurse, wants the three girls to return because it is “not fair” for them to ‘torture in this place’.
Ms Henry additionally believes Ms Jack, who also has Trinidadian nationality, should be allowed to return to the UK to ‘face the consequences’.

The girls attend a makeshift school run by Save the Children, and are among 60 British youth detained in Syrian camps, along with an estimated 16 UK women.
The camp is near Al-Malikiyah in Hasaka Province. A government spokesman told MailOnline today: ‘Our priority is to ensure the safety and security of the UK.
‘Those in Syria include dangerous individuals who chose to stop fighting or otherwise support a group that has committed heinous crimes, including killing and beheading innocent civilians.
‘It is important that we do not make decisions about national security risks based on one’s gender or age.’
It comes a day after Germany inducted eight women into ISIS and repatriated 23 children from the Rose camp, which is in Kurdish-controlled northeastern Syria.

Germany said it was the biggest such transfer since 2019, with Foreign Minister Heiko Maas insisting that the children are ‘not responsible for their condition’
He said the returning “mothers would have to answer for their acts” and that “many of them were detained upon their arrival in Germany”.
Denmark also brought three women and 14 children into its territory under the same operation, which was carried out with US military assistance.
State Department and police officers landed in the area on a US military plane that brought the group to Kuwait before boarding a flight to Frankfurt.
European countries have been at loggerheads over how to treat IS-linked detainees since the fall of ISIS in March 2019, with much of the repatriation done on a case-by-case basis.
Ms Jack, 34, is being held in the same camp as Isis bride Shamima Begum (speaking to ITV’s Good Morning Britain last month) and has been under Isis rule for three years.
Last month the former Isis-bride Begum, 22, apologized to the British public, saying there was “no evidence” that she was a key player in preparing the terrorist acts.
The Begum, who fled her east London home for Syria as a 15-year-old schoolgirl, said she wanted to return to the UK and face terror charges to prove her innocence.
She told ITV’s Good Morning Britain that she would ‘die rather than go back to IS’ and added: ‘The crime I committed was dumb enough to join IS.’
The self-proclaimed ISIS ‘caliphate’ once covered large parts of Syria and Iraq, but lost the last of its territory in March 2019 after a series of defeats.
