JIHADI bride Shamima Begum says the murder of 22 music fans in the Manchester Arena suicide bombing was “fair justification” for air raids on IS in Syria.
Begum, 19, who is pleading to be allowed back into the UK with her newborn baby, dismissed the atrocity at the 2017 Ariana Grande concert as “retaliation.”

Manchester Evening News Charlotte Campbell, whose daughter Olivia, 15, above, was among 22 killed in the 2017 suicide bombing, said: ‘I can’t stand the thought of her being allowed back’
The mum of a Manchester Arena victim said yesterday she was horrified that jihadi bride Shamima Begum may be let back into the UK.
Charlotte Campbell, whose daughter Olivia, 15, was among 22 killed in the 2017 suicide bombing, said: “I can’t stand the thought of her being allowed back.
“It’s making me ill. She’s such high risk.”
Charlotte spoke out after Begum, 19, suggested the bombing of the Ariane Grande concert was “justified” because of air strikes against IS in Syria.
Begum, speaking from a Syrian refugee camp, said of the Manchester atrocity: “It’s a two-way thing because women and children are being killed back in the Islamic State right now.
“It’s kind of retaliation. Their justification was that it was retaliation so I thought, OK, that is a fair justification.”

Suicide bombing survivor Phil Dick, 56, said he was stunned by Begum’s comments.
He added: “This shows the depravity of IS supporters and why none should ever be allowed back into this country.”
Begum, who was 15 when she fled her home in Bethnal Green, East London, to join IS, is pleading to be allowed to return to Britain from a Syrian refugee camp with her newborn baby.
In the latest of a series of interviews, Begum yesterday insisted she was ready to “rehabilitate” if allowed to return.
She said: “I just want forgiveness really, from the UK. Everything I’ve been through, I didn’t expect I would go through that.”
Begum, who wed an IS fighter and had two previous children who died, added: “I don’t want to lose this baby as well.”
Asked if she would say sorry to British terror victims, she said: “OK yeah, I am sorry for all the families who’ve lost husbands and sons and brothers.
“I’m sorry for all the men who have lost women and children because of attacks in the UK.
