The al-Hol camp in north eastern Syria is a flooding vessel of outrage and unanswered inquiries. Inside are the lost ladies and offspring of the jihadist bunch Islamic State (IS), deserted by their men, their horrible caliphate and their legislatures.
Some stick to their detest fuelled belief system: “We are undefeated!” they shout at you. Others ask for an exit plan – a way home.
While western governments equivocate, their kids pass on.
Umm Usma, a Moroccan-Belgian lady, sticks to a dream that she helped the ladies and offspring of Syria in her six years here, the greater part of it with IS.
The previous medical caretaker gets her niqab with a dark gloved hand, “This is my decision,” she says. “In Belgium I was unable to wear my niqab – this is my decision.”
“Each religion accomplished something incorrectly,” she said. “Show us the great.”

As she yells with a gathering of other dark clad ladies, a severely consumed youngster is pushed in a cart through the mud by his mom. “Take a gander at what they did,” her mom yells, alluding to US-upheld powers.
Al-Hol is a bad dream, a camp that has developed from 11,000 individuals, to more than 70,000. It is swollen with the dull consequence of the fallen pseudo-caliphate. It is prepared to blast.

Umm Usma says she has no compelling reason to apologize for the 2016 IS assault in Brussels in which 32 individuals – excluding the planes – were executed. In her psyche, an assault against her nation by the gathering she joined shouldn’t be replied. She has shrouded herself in victimhood. She accepts the West and its air strikes against the latter IS hold-out of Baghouz are at fault for their hopelessness. The detest and viciousness executed by IS are overlooked.
