A medical student who joined Isis has become the first British female recruit to be killed after she was caught in an air strike in Iraq, reports claim.

Rowan Kamal Zine El Abidine was 1 of 9 medical students from the U.K. who all left their university to join Isis in 2015.

The students, who were born and raised in England, but had been studying medicine in Khartoum, flew to Turkey in March last year before crossing over the border into the Isis-controlled town of Tal Abyad, Syria.

Why are so many British Muslims giving up their high standards of living to go fight for Isis?

Because they have bought into their religion.

They truly believe that this 80ish years of corporeal existence is nothing compared to eternity in paradise. They are auditioning for a higher place in heaven than that granted to mere believers who have never put their lives on the line to fight "fee sabil allah" (in the path of God).

One of the students reportedly told her parents via Whatsapp that they had gone to Syria to “help, not to fight” by treating victims of war.

Waal, I'll be dawgawn, what a disgusting thing for a medical student to contemplate.

News agencies in Sudan – where the student’s family are from - did not specify where in Iraq the strike took place, but it is believed Ms El Abidine was in Mosul, where foreign recruits often live in the terror group’s main base.

There are now more than twice as many British Muslims fighting for Islamic State than there are serving in the British armed forces, according to a British Member of Parliament (MP).
'Twice as Many' British Muslims Fighting for ISIS Than in UK Armed Forces

One person out of the nine that went to join Isis told their mom & dad that they weren't going to do anything bad, yeah that's rock solid Chagos. :lamo

We all know what an opinion is, and what every else has. If there was something positive for Islam in all of this I would like to know. There will be NO answer.

Ignoring a problem does nothing but give it time to grow. Being part of the problem, by enabling it, does nothing but increase and speed the growth.

Yes, I understand your need to ignore these facts-
News agencies in Sudan – where the student’s family are from - did not specify where in Iraq the strike took place, but it is believed Ms El Abidine was in Mosul, where foreign recruits often live in the terror group’s main base.
