Mrs. B has brought this up before, but while most of the thinking given by these splitters is eye-rolling centrist nonsense, the issue with anti-semitism seems salient. I've sort of kept myself out of discourse since I'm neither British or Jewish, but I'd be curious if folks here thought there was some truth to that particular allegation. I do feel like I've heard enough from Corbyn, and know his positions, to say that accusations of anti-semitism targeting him personally are off base, but the Left hasn't always been great about cleaning its own house on Israel/Palestine issues when they find themselves with repulsive fellow travelers in their midst.

Most of what I read is filtered through fairly mainstream American news outlets though, so I don't really get a sense of what people are really thinking locally.

I choose to believe Cornyn is not an anti-semite. But as I've said before on these pages he could've and should've cleared the air and put this issue to bed much sooner. The fact the he didn't is very disappointing.

It's a complicated one for me. I'm all for second chances but she knew who was joining and has shown no remorse. If she wasn't a young woman with a child would people feel differently. I personally don't know what to think on this.

Yes it is which is why I wanted the views of some ‘reasonably :mrgreen: ‘ rational Limeys. I think if she is a British citizen ( which I understand she is) then she has every right to return to Britain. However I also think she should face the consequences of her actions / crimes just like any other person would.
Wouldn’t the spooks want to talk to her to get as much information as possible to help keep the troops safe over there?

I have no idea regards the tactical side of things. She doesn't seem to know very much about anything. I'm finding it difficult to feel sympathy towards her as she has stated she had no problems regards the beheadings that took place. The real problem for me is I do feel genuinely sorry for her child as every child should have it's mother close. Like I said it's really complex.

She would know a lot albeit inadvertently.
Agreed it is tough for the child who is innocent plus she has aleady lost two but not sure if that was illness, disease or injury? For that reason alone she should be allowed home for the child’s sake.

Yes but what if she is then jailed?
