British Woman Jailed for Joining Islamic State With Child
« on: February 02, 2016, 01:44:28 PM »
A British woman who took her child to Syria and joined the Islamic State has been sentenced to six years in prison.

Tareena Shakil, 26, was convicted by a Birmingham court of being an IS member and encouraging acts of terrorism.

In October 2014, she and her one-year-old son boarded a plane to Turkey, having told her family she was going on a beach vacation.  She crossed the border into Syria, making her way to the IS stronghold of Raqqa.

But after three months, she fled and turned herself in to the Turkish military.  She was arrested in February 2015 by police at Heathrow Airport upon her return home.

During the trial, Shakil denied charges of joining the Islamist group saying that she wanted to live under strict Islamic law and not support terrorism.

But prosecutors said photos on her phone showed her posing with weapons and her son wearing a hat with an Islamic State symbol.

Judge Melbourne Inman said during sentencing Monday Shakil had embraced the Islamic State group.

"You were well aware that the future, which you had subjected your son to was very likely to be indoctrination and thereafter life as a terrorist fighter,'' he said.
