Earlier today I posted a video made by the ISIS Gals begging to be rescued from a prison camp in Syria. The clip below from Dutch TV news serves as interesting follow-up to the appeal by the Ladies’ Auxiliary of the Islamic State.
It seems that the Kurds have been given the short end of the stick: they are required to maintain a prison camp system for ISIS captives at enormous expense in both money and lives. In addition to the Kurds themselves, the American government is pressuring European governments to accept the return of “their” fighters from Syria, along with their jihad molls and their puir wee bairns.
If the Trump administration is successful, a substantial portion of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant will be dispersed among various Western European countries.
Many thanks to C for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling:
|00:00||With us is war correspondent Hans-Jaap Melissen. Hans-Jaap,|
|00:03||you’ve been in one of these camps recently, where Dutch women and children|
|00:06||associated with the Islamic State are held. The rumors that the grandfather talks about,|
|00:12||what seems like preparations for a possible repatriation, are you aware of those?|
|00:16||Yes, I saw such apps two weeks ago.|
|00:20||These women themselves claim they’re being prepared for release.|
|00:25||and they pose with their children; documents have been prepared, which have been passed on|
|00:30||to another camp, they would possibly be moved to another camp,|
|00:33||and from there possibly to Iraq, where the Dutch consulate is,|
|00:37||and as was stated before, once they’re at a consulate, they can return to the Netherlands.|
|00:41||So that’s what these women assume.|
|00:44||The official government standpoint is: we’re not going to repatriate these women and children.|
|00:50||Government institutions that would possibly deal with these people have made|
|00:53||the proper arrangements. Is that premature, is that how|
|00:57||I should think of this? —I don’t think it is premature. The pressure from the US is increasing.|
|01:00||But the Kurds are applying pressure as well. We shouldn’t discount the Kurds.|
|01:03||They’re running a huge camp that holds thousands of ISIS members. It costs them $700,000 per day.|
|01:09||There are stabbings. When I was there, an ISIS woman stabbed a Kurdish guard.|
|01:14||That happened later as well. They’re still making ISIS propaganda videos.|
|01:18||It’s really a mini-Islamic State, only there’s a fence around it.|
|01:21||The Kurds would really like to get rid of [these people].|
|01:24||They expect gratitude, because they fought. Against ISIS, for us, is what they say.|
|01:28||So pressure from their side too, on the Dutch government for example. We’ll discuss this shortly.
