Few will have sympathy for Shamima Begum.
Having turned her back on Britain to join the ISIS death cult she now wants to return to bring up her unborn baby.
You can understand why a young mother would prefer to bring up her child in the UK rather than a Syrian refugee camp.
Begum, who joined a terrorist outfit that declared war on Western values, now wants the security of a country which has the protection of the welfare state and free healthcare.
But her request would fall on more sympathetic ears if she had expressed any regret.
This is a barbaric organisation responsible for horrific acts of brutality, murder and torture.
Yet we should also remember Begum was 15 when she was groomed by IS operatives and persuaded to join their forces in Syria.
Were she to make it here, she should be investigated for possible terrorist offences and made to undertake a deradicalisation programme.
Begum is not the only Briton now seeking a return because the Caliphate they envisioned lies destroyed amid the rubble of war-torn Syria and Iraq.
If IS had not been defeated, they would not be asking to come back.
