Just like other western European nations, Belgium also has a lot of women and children staying in refugee camps in Syria who were once part of the death cult of ISIS but, as their husbands have now perished in battle, are alone and keen to return to the countries they fled in 2014-2015, when the Syrian war started.

According to European law, citizens who hold a valid passport should be aided during a repatriation effort when in danger abroad. The issue came into the spotlight in Belgium this weekend when the national broadcaster VRT showed a documentary by Mr. Rudi Vranckx who had visited some of the refugee camps in Syria and Iraq where European nationals are being held.

He had found some 15 women with Belgian or double nationality in these camps who had fled around 2014-2015 to Syria alongside their husbands to fight with ISIS.

Now they are alone with their children and speak perfect Dutch or French still, and stated on national TV that just for the sake of the children, they should be allowed to return.

In the camp, there was Dutch and Swedish diplomatic personnel present, but no Belgians.

Member of parliament Mr Peter De Roover of the largest government party NVA (National Flemish Alliance) appeared therefore in an interview on the national broadcaster yesterday and was quite clear about the view of most western European nations when he stated that: “We will not actively be repatriating ISIS children or women with Belgian nationality from these areas. Whatever happens to those children is firstly the responsibility of the parents.”

According to Mr. De Roover, the parents who took their children to Syria in 2014 knew full well what they were getting into even though the women stated that they were ‘simply following their husbands’.

Mr. De Roover: “That we would endanger our security personnel to repatriate people who have willingly left to Syria, is a bridge too far.”

They should stay in the camps for natural life or become fertilizer

Any politician in Europe that would help can forget about his / her career if any of those kids becomes a terrorist

They are all ruined, they knew what they were getting into. The kids are being told that daddy was a war hero and groomed for their turn. I agree with the first poster kinda. Put them all on some commercial plane that has too many hours and was slated to be scrapped get out over the pacific with no fuel remaining. The navy pilots abandon the plane and a predetermined time and place so they can get picked up by their buds and watch the plane run out of fuel and belly land hard in the ocean.
