Woman Dropped Out Of College To Fight ISIS, Has Passport Confiscated
One woman has seen her passport confiscated in her homeland after returning from fighting ISIS.
Joanna Palani dropped out of college to go and join the fight against the terrorist group at only 22-years-old, and after returning to Denmark during some downtime, saw officials seize her passport.
She has been in the Syrian city of Kobane, and had joined the many western people already trying to fight back against the terrorist organisation.
After seeing her passport taken, Joanna, of Kurdish descent, said:
They have forbidden me from leaving Denmark. That puts me in the dilemma that I cannot continue my service down there as a soldier.
How can I pose a threat to Denmark and other countries by being a soldier in an official army that Denmark trains and supports directly in the fight against the Islamic State?
Joanna arrived in Denmark aged three, and had lived there while growing up, before leaving to fight the war on terror.
Yet new ‘foreign fighter’ rules, which are intended to stop people from Denmark joining terror groups, have seen her passport taken.
She is planning to appeal the decision, and added:
I love Denmark. I grew up here and I love the freedom of our society.
If Denmark should ever be attacked, I will go to the front-line with a Danish flag around my shoulders.
But I have Kurdish family, and right now it is the Kurds who are being attacked by brainwashed Islamists.
