Dagestani woman surrenders to SDF, says ISIS is ‘all a lie’

By Rudaw 2/10/2018
.
A woman from the Russian Republic of Dagestan who joined ISIS with her husband in 2014 now says “This isn’t an Islamic state. There is nothing Islamic in it… This is all a lie.”

Emnei Imrakhanova and her first husband traveled to Syria through Turkey. Her first and second husbands were killed in fighting. Her third is currently being investigated. 

Imrakhanova turned herself over to the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) in the town of al-Susa, near Hajin, where the Kurdish-led forces are fighting ISIS in their last stronghold in the Euphrates River valley in Deir ez-Zor province. 

The self-administration authorities in northern Syria are currently holding nearly 400 wives of ISIS fighters. They have asked their home countries to take the women back, but most nations don’t want to take back these women or the foreign fighters. 

In September, the Kurdish authorities handed a female Sudanese ISIS member and her one-month-old child over to a Sudanese diplomat. 

“I would like to return to the camps where my sisters speak in Russian. Then later let them decide for themselves. For me, it makes no difference whether I return to Russia or not,” said Imrakhanova.

VERY interesting. ... ISIS grew out of Al Qaida In Iraq ... Its leadership wasn't "jihadi", but rather Ba'athist military officers like al-Douri who'd gone underground after the Coalition invasion ... al-Baghdadi was a street-preacher who was brought in to give a "religious sheen" ... ISIS could survive as "Islamic State" because killing in the name of God has become very stylish in certain quarters (such as those the woman runs in) ... ISIS is merely vile murderous filth which knows nothing of the Divine.

Excuses excuses. It's amazing what happens when Muslims see the true face of their religion. They are scared by it. To compensate, it suddenly becomes that 'ISIS is not Islamic'. Yeah right....I don't know what Quran these people are reading, but they are highly misinformed or just plain ignorant.

Al-Douri openly fought against isis later on. Maybe at the beginning he had a hand to play, but after the fall of Mosul and when ISIS started killing his support base and tribal shiekhs. He tried to use the animals(ISIS) to push back against the iranian shills in baghdad and the dogs he unleashed bit back. And no the AQ and Islamic state fighters were not baathists(syria was a baathist gov fyi) they purely were sunni jihadists

Kurds are brothers as long as they accept to obey and live as 2nd. and 3rd. class citizens and they do not demand their free Kurdistan.
