BBC claims to separate fact from fiction in glam presentation of infamous Islamic State bride Shamima Begum



The BBC Media Center announcement is here: Shamima Begum Story podcast to launch on BBC Sounds. This announcement should sicken anyone who has knowledge of this woman. The BBC further states: “The series seeks to separate fact from fiction as it explores who is Shamima Begum? How did she get to Syria? And what did she do when she got there?” But how can it possibly deliver this promise honestly when the title of the series as a whole is “I’m Not a Monster”? The series stars a carefully presented Begum, minus the gruesome testimony of those whose loved ones were subjected to the most heinous human rights abuses by Begum and her husband.

The BBC isn’t presenting survivors of the Islamic State, such as 2018 Nobel Peace Prize laureate Nadia Murad, a Yazidi victim of the Islamic State who again became a victim again, this time of cancel culture. The Jerusalem Post wrote:

Nadia Murad was the latest victim of the West’s cancel culture, as she was disinvited from a book event by Canada’s Toronto District School Board. This may sound trivial, but it’s a big deal.

It is indeed a big deal, and it’s also a big deal that Shamima Begum, a jihadi, is being featured in a full glam series on the taxpayer-funded BBC. A few facts need to be understood about Begum. There isn’t any hint of a genuine indication that the infamous Islamic State bride poses no threat to Britain. Nothing proves that she isn’t just as dangerous as her male jihadi counterparts. Many Islamic State brides view infidel countries as enemy states, and many of them will likely continue their work of destroying those countries from within if given the opportunity. Some continue their missions in jail, joining the ongoing effort to turn prisons in the West into jihad training camps. Some Islamic State brides also indoctrinate their children to commit extreme violence in the cause of jihad. The understanding of the dangers these women pose was influential in Begum losing her appeal to return home to Britain after the fall of the Islamic State.

Begum reportedly “told her friends that she will never name other Brits who joined ISIS – despite claiming she wanted to help fight terrorism.” Before she left Britain, she wore an ISIS badge on her school blazer as she tried to recruit classmates for jihad. She also stated that the Manchester jihad massacre was “justified,” but apologized to help save her own skin. After ISIS’s fall, she suddenly (and conveniently) wanted Britons to believe that she was just “a dumb kid who made one mistake.” She even claimed that she joined ISIS because she didn’t feel loved as a kid. There are countless people who didn’t feel loved as a kid who did not commit indescribable human rights abuses as a result. Her reasoning would justify the freeing of every dangerous offender from maximum security prisons.

What makes her even worse than dangerous offenders in the West is her thorough indoctrination into the jihad ideology, which includes the tactic of taqiyya (dissimulation); jihadis have employed this tactic throughout history. There is a reason why deradicalization programs have been abject failures.

The majority of mainstream leaders in the West are clueless about anything relating to jihad, and they avoid acquiring any useful knowledge for fear of being beaten down by charges of “Islamophobia” from Islamic supremacist lobbies posing as “anti-racism” advocates. And they are backed by foreign interests. Open discussion about Islam and jihad is heavily censored in Western societies, and so knowledge is severely lacking. So why would anyone expect the BBC to do justice to Shamima Begum’s story?

Begum was stripped of her British citizenship, and for good reason: the safety of the British public. But Begum has not given up. Her team’s latest stunt is the exploitation of anti-slavery laws. Keeping in mind Begum’s willingness to join the Islamic State and her dedication to it long before embarking on her trip to Syria, shocking news broke in September that Canadian Security Intelligence Service (CSIS) was accused of smuggling teens from Britain, including Shamima Begum, to the Islamic State. The story remains shrouded in mystery, but it posed an opportunity for Begum and her lawyer. They will now present her yet again as an innocent victim, this time as one who was trafficked by Canadian spy Mohammed Al Rashed, who was working with CSIS. The BBC podcast series will assuredly assist in this. British counterterrorism legal expert Jonathan Hall has “warned that the UK’s anti-slavery laws could pose a threat to national security.”

Begum and her lawyer have nothing to lose in fighting for Begum to return to Britain.  She has plenty of time on her hands, and he seeks victory in her prominent case, which will help him soar to fame. The BBC is helping as well.

To Begum’s advantage, there are those who generally believe that a woman is a victim no matter what, especially once she looks innocent and speaks softly, with just the right tone of sadness. The bleeding heart, useful idiots do the rest. Even the UK’s allegedly “conservative” Telegraph published a glamor photo shoot of Begum in 2021, portraying her as a reformed Western gal. These bleeding hearts, however, ignore the agony of the real victims.

The question necessarily arises: What kind of morally repugnant publication would present poison as if it were safe? The Telegraph, for one, and now comes a deadlier poison: the BBC’s presentation of Begum. The BBC’s lavish ten-part podcast paints a rosy picture of Begum, even while insisting that it will take a critical look at her. The BBC’s Josh Baker states:

As Shamima challenges the removal of her British citizenship by the UK government, I’ve examined her accounts to give listeners a definitive narrative on this complex, nuanced and shocking story.

The title of the series tells it all. The presentation is anything but fair. The families and loved ones of victims of the Islamic State, particularly Christians and Yazidis, are missing. They are now being traumatized further by the morally void BBC. Robert Spencer, who had a bitter experience with the UK and the BBC, writes:

The contrast should be clear. The BBC loves Shamima Begum and is doing everything it can for her. But those who oppose jihad terror the BBC doesn’t love so much.

The BBC series will not only generate a sizable audience in showcasing its media darling Begum as an unfortunate Western gal who was victimized, the series may well help her attain her long sought-after goal: permission to return to Britain, a country she now calls home.

To jihadis, however, home is only where Islam has conquered, where Sharia is the law of the land. The BBC is once again playing the role of the useful idiot.
