In mid-September, Mad World News reported on two teens that had been brainwashed to the extent of running away and joining members of ISIS. As it turns out, the lifestyle promised to them wasn’t exactly accurate and the girls have now realized they’ve made a terrible mistake – go figure.
Samra Kesinovic, 17, and Sabina Selimovic, 15, left their homes in Austria back in April with nothing more than a note reading, “Don’t look for us. We will serve Allah — and we will die for him.” After being rumored to be married to Muslim Jihadists and getting pregnant, they’ve effectively become the poster children for ISIS recruitment.
Mad World News previously reported that one of the two may have died. This was nothing more than speculation from various sources, since they were unconfirmed rumors.
After several months of living with their new-found families, it turns out everything was not what it was cracked up to be. It appears the two have grown to hate the same people that progressively brainwashed them and realized that their former life may not have been so bad.
According to the New York Post:
For weeks, social media accounts believed to belong to the girls have been posting pictures and information leading many to feel they enjoyed living a life of terror.
Now, the Austrian media is reporting that the girls are ready to come home. Apparently the two have spoken with families and loved ones saying they’re ready to leave the company of Islamic State Jihadists, but they fear returning home on account of their new-found reputation.
Austrian Interior Ministry spokesman Karl-Heinz Grundboeck further echoed this concern saying, “The main problem is about people coming back to Austria. Once they leave, it is almost impossible.”
One would think that the realization by these two teens that the Islamic State is bad news would be nothing more than common sense.
