American Woman Whose Husband Died Fighting For ISIS Speaks About Her Life

From the Daily Mail:
An American woman whose husband died fighting for ISIS has spoken about life in the ‘caliphate capital’ in Syria for the first time.

Sam El Hassani claims her husband Moussa tricked her into crossing the Syrian border during a holiday to Turkey in 2015, where he joined ISIS as a jihadist fighter.

She reveals she found herself living with their children in Raqqa, along with two Yazidi girls her husband kept as slaves in their home, which he ‘repeatedly raped’.

In a documentary for PBS Frontline and BBC Panorama, Mrs El Hassani details how she went from happily married in Indiana to a widow with four children in a Kurdish prison in Syria.

The couple had been married for five years and were living ‘a great life’ in Indiana with their two children.

But – she claims – she did not see that her husband, a Moroccan national, was becoming radicalized, and in 2015 he lured her and the children into Syria and to ISIS’s now-defeated ‘capital’.

When asked why she did not take her children and run, she says; ‘You have to understand, I was afraid for our lives.’

During their time in Raqqa, Mrs El Hassani had two more children, and was forced to watch her oldest son used in an ISIS propaganda video that shocked the world.

Last July, ten-year-old Matthew could be seen calling U.S. President Donald Trump ‘a puppet of the Jews’ in a video which saw him threaten terrorist attacks on the West.

‘Allah has promised us victory and promised you defeat,’ Matthew is seen saying while standing on the rubble of bombed buildings in Raqqa.

‘The battle is not going to end in Raqqa or Mosul, its going in your lands. By the will of Allah, we will have victory, so get ready for the fighting has just begun.’ …
