FOLLOWING the imminent defeat of DAESH in Iraq, which is just around the corner, the next step will be to evacuate DAESH members from the land of Syria, which they have contaminated with their gruesome crimes. They took pride over these crimes and openly broadcasted them on social media with the aim of spreading fear and panic in the hearts of their antagonists.
After being away from their countries for a very long time, these human savages will have to return back and may commit more crimes there.
In Tunisia, discussions and demonstrations are ongoing in Al-Habeeb Borqebah Street in the Capital city of Tunis and in other cities and towns, demanding the government to ban the return of DAESH members, estimated to be about 6,000 individuals.
If the ban on their return to Tunisia is implemented, the DAESH members should be prosecuted for the horrific crimes they have been committing, and then sent to accredited rehabilitation centers for their rehabilitation in order to remove the destructive “takfiri” ideologies from their minds.
Regarding Kuwait, it seems our well-guided government appears to not be concerned about the citizens who are DAESH’s activists, supporters and financers.
In fact, our government seems to enjoy punishing itself. We all remember the millions that were spent, and the efforts rendered by our officials as well as the officials of the United States of America for the release of one of the Kuwaiti citizens who were incarcerated in Guantanamo Bay prison.
From time to time, we hear about the killing of high-ranking Kuwaiti members of DAESH, without even a blink of an eye from us. For sure, most of those who fought under the DAESH’s black flag are the ones who have been killed. Thus, the world has been safeguarded from their evil.
What then is the government’s plan for dealing with the returning ones? What is the plan of the Parliament especially that of the Negative Phenomenan Committee concerning these defeated individuals who will return to our beloved land?
I hope there is a plan in place. I hope this serious issue will not be handled based on selfish reactions similar to the way we have been dealing with many crises and problems.
I urge noble citizens and relevant civil society organizations to extend a hand of help, in terms of presenting ideas or using the experiences of other nations in this regard, to our wise government for dealing with this huge issue, which could bring a lot of damage to our country.
