UK Official Vows to Prevent Return  of Britons Who Backed ISIS

LONDON – Britain’s home secretary issued an explicit warning Friday, saying he would move to block the return of a pregnant British teenager who left the country to join ISIS.
Sajid Javid said he “will not hesitate” to bar the entry of those Britons who traveled to the Middle East to join the Islamic State, saying those people were “full of hate for our country”.
The warning is aimed at 19-year-old Shamima Begum, a nine-month pregnant woman who now seeks to return home to Britain and have a jihadist’s baby after she infamously fled to the Middle East when she was 15 years old.
“My message is clear – if you have supported terrorist organizations abroad I will not hesitate to prevent your return,” Javid told The London Times.
He added that if Begum does return to the country, she will be prosecuted. “If you do manage to return you should be ready to be questioned, investigated and potentially prosecuted,” he said.
The teen’s family appealed for mercy from the government, saying she was underage when she left for Syria in 2015 – at the peak of the IS recruitment campaign.
She’s currently at a Syrian refugee camp together with other family members and jihadist fighters. (Fox News)
