Yusra Hussein: Islamic State Paedophiles ‘Groom’ British Teens
THE papers lead with Yusra Hussein. She’s left the UK to join ISIS. Well, so they say. Yusra travelled to Turkey with a 17-year-old. And then we don’t know what she did.
The Sun uses the language of paedophilia to discuss her defection:
Youngest I.S. recruit, 15, groomed online to become jihadi bride – Schoolgirl runs off to join fanatics in Syria
It is believed the schoolgirl may have been groomed to become the bride of one of Islamic State’s jihadi fighters in Syria — despite her age.
The message is clear: ISIS is a haven for peados. If you didn’t hate them before, you surely do now.
Dad Mohammed only realised she was missing when he arrived at her school at 3.15pm on Wednesday to pick her up. Yusra’s family say she had no cash to pay for her flight so the air ticket must have been provided by whoever recruited her to the IS cause.
Whereas the Sun pixelates the young woman’s face…
…the Mirror just slap her face on the cover.
The Mirror looks at the teenage runaway:
In an emotional message to their daughter – who hopes to be a dentist – parents Mohammed and Safiya said: “Please come back, we miss you very much. You’re not in any trouble, we just want you to be safe and come home as soon as possible.”
The paper introduces party politics:
Family spokesman Hibaq Jama said Mohammed, Safiya, their younger daughter and three sons are “devastated”. The Labour councillor added: “They are distraught. Yusra was very aspirational, wanting to go on and become a dentist…
“So it has come as a complete shock to the parents. But it has also come as a shock to the community who are now understandably asking questions about the fact that if she, as a 15-year-old girl, very articulate, has disappeared, then there are understandably concerns for others.
“I think it is really important to understand that at the heart of it is a grieving mother and a grieving father who as of yet have no idea where their 15-year-old daughter is. They have not been able to make contact with her since she went missing.”
“IS are a menace to the whole of society. They have nothing to do with the Muslim faith whatsoever.”
The teenager has not been seen since 7am last Wednesday when she left home in the Easton area of Bristol…
We don’t know if she’s a jihadi or not.
Up to 50 British girls and young women are feared to have gone to the Middle East to join the jihadis. It is claimed that Yusra was introduced to the London-based radical – who is also from a Somalian family – by a third girl, who is now being sought in Bristol.
