Shamima Begum boasts she's got a plush tent in refugee camp because she's ‘famous now’ but jealous hardline ISIS brides 'want to burn it down'

SHAMIMA Begum has boasted about being given a plush tent because she’s “famous now” – but angry neighbours in her refugee camp “want to burn it down”.
The ISIS bride told how her “fame” led her to being given the new makeshift home in the squalid Al-Hawl camp in northern Syria.

But she admitted it has led to anger among jealous jihadi wives – and Islamist hardliners.
They’ve scorned her for appearing in multiple TV interviews without covering her face in line with extreme Islamic law.
The 19-year-old told the Daily Mail that she even heard “talk” of plans to burn down the tent where she lives with her week-old son Jerah – named after a 7th century Islamic warlord.
She said: “Now a lot of women hate me, I’m afraid of a lot of people.”
Begum, who was last week stripped of her British citizenship, also finally claimed she was truly sorry for ditching East London at 15 to join up with the brutal ISIS death cult.
She said: “‘I am hoping to be given a second chance.
“I’d like to be an example of how someone can change.
“I want to help, encourage other young British people to think before they make life- changing decisions like this and not to make the same mistake as me.
“I can’t do that if I am sitting here in a camp. I can’t do that for you.”
It comes after her family told how they were appalled at what she has said since being tracked down at the camp earlier this month.
Her father condemned her lack of remorse for what ISIS has done –  saying he is “on the side of the Government” for banning her from re-entering the country.
Ahmed Ali, 60, said: “I know they (the British Government) don’t want to take her back, and in this I don’t have a problem.
“I know she is stuck there but that’s because she has done actions that made her get stuck like this.
“I can’t say whether it is right or wrong, but if the law of the land says that it is correct to cancel her citizenship, then I agree.”
But Shamima – who married jailed Dutch terror nut Yago Riedijk, 23, in Syria – insists she’s been “discriminated against” by British authorities.
That is despite admitting she never planned come back to the UK when she travelled to war-torn Syria with two school friends in February 2015.
Again describing herself as “famous”, she said: “I feel like I’ve been discriminated against because everyone was saying I was a poster girl for ISIS.
“I’m being made an example of. I’m being punished right now because I’m famous.”

She added: “(ISIS) took my passport but I thought to myself ‘what am I going to do with it? I don’t really have any use for it.'”
The government argues it is legal to strip her of UK citizenship because she is eligible for Bangladeshi citizenship – although Bangladesh has said it will not accept her.
Home Secretary Sajid Javid’s decision has met with opposition from critics who argue she should be potentially trialled in Britain.
