    UK - Shamima Begum, 15, Amira Abase, 15, & Kadiza Sultana, 16, Feb 2015

    Shamima Begum, Kadiza Sultana & Unnamed Teen Girl

    Scotland Yard said Friday it fears that three missing teenage girls are en route to Syria through Turkey to join the terrorist group Islamic State. It appealed through social media to try to convince them to return home before they cross the border. Shamima Begum, 15, Kadiza Sultana, 16, and an unnamed 15 year old, all from London's Bethnal Green Academy, flew during their mid-term break from London's Gatwick Airport to Istanbul on Tuesday, according to London Metro Police.

    The third girl is not being named at the request of her family. Shamima is possibly traveling under the name of Aklima Begum, police said. The girls, shown on airport surveillance video, are friends with a fourth student who went to Syria in December.

    Police commander Richard Walton, of Scotland Yard's counter terrorism unit, said the three — described as "straight-A students" and "normal girls" — were last seen on Tuesday when they gave their families "plausible reasons" to be out for the day.

    They then boarded a Turkish Airlines flight, which landed in Turkey that evening.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    U.K. missing teenagers likely ‘out of reach’ in Islamic State territory
    http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/...sultana-islam/
    U.K. officials say that three missing teenage girls who flew to Turkey to join up with the Islamic State group are likely in Syria. Shamima Begum, 15, Amira Abase, 15, and Kadiza Sultana, 16, disappeared on Feb. 17. The girls flew boarded a Turkish Airlines flight out of Gatwick Airport south of London and have not been seen since.
    The Metropolitan Police said in a statement on Tuesday that officials “now had reason to believe that they are no longer in Turkey and have crossed into Syria. Officers continue to work closely with the Turkish authorities on this investigation,” BBC reported.

    They have been captured on CCTV at a bus station in Turkey for 18 hours calmly waiting to board a bus for Syria:

    They are definitely now in Syria.

    I was was hoping for more conversation here about these girls (and others like them). It fascinates anger and disgusts me that young, Western born women are feeling this is a good plan. What kind of kids are these that see beheadings and burning people alive in cages and crucifixions and heads on stakes and think, "Yeah. This sounds fun! I want to go marry on of those guys. And never be free to return. And never see my family again. Sleep in my bed. Listen to pop music. Watch western tv. Go to the movies."

    There was actually a good article recently on the motivation of young western girls and women who join these groups. It doesn't fully explain things to me but it's interesting. Let me see if I can find it.

    At least two of three of the girls are already married and widowed within the space of a year. If they still reside in Raqqa, the capital of the 'islamic state', all i have to say is a huge US-Coalition-Russia offensive is in the works to take Raqqa back. They have leaflet dropped telling people to get out of the city (which, people cant actually do). As much as i feel bad for them (bright teenage girls blindly falling for propaganda, going off to hell on earth), I feel even worse for their families. They are never making it out of Syria alive. They might have been killed already, as contact was lost with their family in England in mid December 2015.

    Kadiza Sultana is believed to have died in May, in an airstrike on a building in Raqqa. She apparently had become disillusioned and was planning on fleeing

    Sadly for her, if IS found out she was trying to leave she would likely have met with a much worse fate.
    Justice for Jennifer
