A teenager ‘jihadi bride’ who fled Britain to join Islamic State terrorists has callously mocked the victims of the Tunisian massacre – as she tried to lure another schoolgirl to join her in Syria.
Amira Abase, 16, wrote that she was laughing out loud – ‘Lol’ in text language – as Britain mourned the 30 citizens murdered on the Sousse beach.
The sickening remark came in an extraordinary series of exchanges with an undercover Mail on Sunday reporter, who Abase believed to be another British teenager planning to run away to join barbaric IS. Abase encouraged her to make the dangerous trip to marry a frontline jihadi fighter
Their online conversation reveals for the first time the full extent of the indoctrination to which Abase has been subjected since she and two school friends vanished from their East London homes to join IS in February.
The messages make clear that she now has an active role as a recruiter and ‘mentor’, planting the seeds of jihad in impressionable teenage minds.
In the most shocking messages, sent on Friday night, Abase is asked if she had heard about the Tunisian killings. She replies ‘
Yhh I have, trusst [me] man’ – but said she hadn’t seen the pictures of the gunman.
When told of the minute’s silence across Britain in memory of the victims, she simply said: ‘Looooool’.
And when the reporter said that some Muslim leaders were condemning the attack, she again replied ‘Looool’.
She appeared sceptical when asked if she agreed the tourists were innocent, replying simply: ‘research’, adding later, ‘like read about it.’
