“Dutch” Wives Returning From the Jihad in Syria

Speaking of returning mujahideen — what about their wives?

A lot of jihad fighters who left Europe for Syria took their molls with them, and the latter were often accompanied by their children. Additional children were sometimes born to those wives while they were in Syria.

Och, the puir wee bairns!

The Netherlands is grappling with the issue of jihadis’ wives who are stranded in refugee camps in Syria. Now it looks like the government will arrange the return of six “Dutch” wives and their children — at state expense, of course.

The Netherlands Looking Into Repatriation of Six Wives and Their Children From Syria

An arrest warrant has been issued against the women. In a letter to the Chamber, Minister Grapperhaus writes that the policy remains unchanged.

The Netherlands is looking into how, together with the Kurdish authorities, six women who went to Syria, along with their eleven children, can be repatriated. The women are suspected of belonging to a terrorist organization. That is what Minister Ferdinand Grapperhaus (Justice and Security, CDA) said Friday to NOS. An arrest warrant has been issued against the six.

This active repatriation does not apply to other females [who went to Syria] and their children. On Thursday, Minister Grapperhaus informed the Chamber that the policy, with the exception of the six women, has not changed. That was confirmed by a spokesman for the minister this Friday to NRC. The government maintains that the others must make their own way to the consulate in Erbil. This is actually not possible because the women are in Kurdish camps as prisoners.

Detailed Arrest Warrant

In a January 8 decision, the court in Rotterdam demanded that the authorities make every effort to get the women out of the Al-Hol camp on the Syrian-Iraqi border. Detailed instructions on this were given. The women and their children should be brought from northeastern Syria to the border with Iraq and from there transferred to the Kurdish Autonomous Region. In Erbil, the capital of the Iraqi-Kurdish region, there is a Dutch consulate. From there, their repatriation should be arranged.

Grapperhaus told NOS:

“We have spoken with the organizations that manage the camps. We have established that if they actually transfer them to a safe area, and then to a consulate of the Netherlands, then we can take them. Mothers will then, naturally, be arrested by the Marechaussee [police] and the children can be received by Child Protection.”

Poor Conditions

On Thursday the World Health Organization reported that 29 children and babies had died from hypothermia in the Al-Hol refugee camp. The population in the camp has tripled in recent weeks. This has led to a shortage of tents, toilets, and medical supplies, and there is no heating. Also, there are dozens of Dutch people.

This week France announced that French jihadis who are stuck in Syria are going to be actively repatriated. This is due to the fact that the US is withdrawing, which makes the situation in the region unstable. Under pressure from judges, Belgium is preparing to bring children of IS-fighters to Belgium. For the time being, Belgium is refusing to repatriate their mothers.

  1. “Under pressure from judges…”

    I see the US is not the only place where rogue judges make their own policy regardless of laws and elected officials. Fortunately, in the US, there is a Constitutional mechanism to limit the ability of the courts to interfere with legislation. The Congress can simply exempt any law specifically from judicial review. Unfortunately, in the presently-split Congress, you’ll never get a provision like that. One of the benefits of diversity.

    On the other hand, it was the US Supreme Court that invalidated the fascist NRA and stopped Roosevelt’s leap into totalitarianism, not to mention allowed a slow recovery. So, judicial review can have its upside as well.

    But, I want to note how odd it is that the targeted country is supposed to care for non-citizen children more than their actual “parents”. Drag a child across a thousand miles of desert with disease, lack of food and water, and the US government is supposed to take responsibility for medical treatment of the child. Drag your Muslim child to a jihad war zone, so you can have the delight of blowing up infidels, and the Dutch government is supposed to exert itself to rescue the jihad wives and their children.

    • Don’t let them return………..why would any sane person let them back in?
      Make Syria great again!

      • If other countries can “refuse to cooperate” and not let their own nationals back into the country after their asylum applications have been rejected, I don’t see why we couldn’t do the same.

        I do know of one case where a dual passport holding dirtbag was stripped of his Dutch nationality, but whether that has any serious consequences remains yet to be seen.

        Under Dutch law it is impossible to strip people of their Dutch citizenship if that makes them stateless persons.

    • In this context, it should be noted that in the Netherlands, judges are not elected, but appointed by the government. For life. Which suggests that Dutch judges are part of the elite. Especially since there is no way for the people to dispose of these unelected judges.
      Some argue, that as a consequence of this practise, the majority of Dutch judges are babyboomers who have been instilled with “summer of love” values from the sixties and apply outdated concepts from the early seventies that are no longer relevant in society today.
      This would perhaps explain the unbelievably soft sentences being handed by them, the systematical reversal of perpetrator and victim, and the stern belief that a criminal should be HELPED, rather than punished. Fact of the matter is that the Dutch justice system is NOT punitive. Instead it focuses on prevention of recidivism.

      Most Americans will have a seriously hard time trying to wrap their brains around this, but in Holland, the effect that punishment may have on the convict, influences the verdict itself. For instance, a judge may argue that sending a criminal to prison will result in them losing their job. And after losing their job, they won’t be able to pay the rent, and will consequently lose their home and become homeless. And that “doesn’t help”.

      “And ? So what ?” You say.

      Yeah. I know.

      But in the mindset of many a Dutch judge, this “only makes matters worse”, and it would be grossly unfair if a criminal were to be “punished double” with homelessness after serving time in prison, so this must be prevented. By not sending them to jail.

      Another mindboggling example : Consider a career criminal with a rap sheet that’s a mile long. He’s found a girl, started a family, has a job now, and tries to be good. Two years later : relapse, and he is back to his old criminal tricks again.
      A Dutch judge will typically argue that he “unfortunately made a foolish mistake” but deserves another chance, because he has proven that he is capable of staying out of trouble for a long period of time. In addition, not having committed any crimes over the past two years counts as mitigating circumstances and may well be reason for a judge to reduce a sentence.

      • I understand this concept as a Canadian.

        Our courts don’t like to take away the cars or driving licences of drunk drivers. It is believed that this produces punishment on the family and makes it more difficult to keep a job.

  2. Kadyrov took them out by air from the Islamic State. But then the FSB intervened. Garbage bags no longer take out, but only their bastards.

    They are now called “Russian women” and their moms in hijabs write tearful letters to Putin.
    By the way, not a single garbage bag took off the black hijab. So, it makes no sense to talk about their re-education.

  3. One of their attorneys found loopholes to exploit and got lucky. More or less like this :

    1) “Since my client is being charged with criminal offenses, she has the right to be present during her own court case.” (GRANTED)
    2) “Under international law, the state of the Netherlands loses its right to persecute if my client is not returned to the Netherlands” (DISMISSED)
    3) “If the prosecution wishes to put my client on trial, the prosecution must first issue a warrant of arrest. It is then the prosecution’s responsibility to bring her to justice, starting with her repatriation to the Netherlands so she can stand trial. (GRANTED)
