British Mom Reportedly Dumped Her Children, Joined ISIS

| by Lisa Fogarty

A British mom, who was once the lead singer in an all-girl rock band, has reportedly become the latest ISIS recruit, according to UK Metro.

Sally Jones is a mother of two in her forties who is married to British hacker-turned-Islamic-extremist Junaid Hussain. She reportedly converted to Islam and both she and Hussain have made separate trips to Syria.

Jones reportedly changed her name to Umm Hussain al-Britani and uses Twitter to post messages like, “You Christians all need beheading with a nice blunt knife and stuck on the railings at raqqa … Come here I’ll do it for you!”

Jones, who spent most of her life receiving government assistance, is said to have abandoned her two young sons in order to join ISIS, reports Daily Mail. Although her Twitter account has since been deleted, the news source reports that a tweet from Aug. 10 reveals she and Hussain may have ended up in the “Caliphate.” She reportedly wrote, “Alhamdulillah me and my husband made it to the Islamic State after being stuck in Idlib for 7 mnths & are now living in the khilafah #isis.” A second post reportedly read, “My husband is away at training camp at the moment refreshing his ‘kaafir killing skills’ …Don’t all cry though he’ll be back soon :)”

This judge looked an inmate square in the eyes and did something that left the entire courtroom in tears:

Jones’ brother, Patrick, who reportedly owns a paving company, said his family is upset about the news that his sister is working with ISIS.

“This is a very upsetting and distressing time for my family and I just don’t want them to be a part of it,” he said. “She fell in love and went away.”
