Jihad isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, say disgruntled Isis recruits

It ain’t half cold here mum. My iPod has packed up. All I do is the washing-up.

Some of the messages sent home to France by disgruntled Isis volunteers sound like letters from homesick school-children. A number of young French men and women fighting or working for Isis in Iraq and Syria have appealed to relatives and lawyers to help them to come home.

A selection of their messages, leaked to the newspaper Le Figaro, contrast bizarrely with the image of implacable and hard-hearted jihad peddled by terror websites. “I’m fed up to the back teeth. My iPod no longer works out here. I have got to come home,” said a message from a French fighter in Syria.

Another disillusioned volunteer said: “I’m sick of it. They make me do the washing-up.” A third appealed for clemency from the French authorities, who have a policy of arresting returning jihadis. “I’ve done hardly anything but hand out clothes and food,” he said. “I’ve also cleaned weapons and moved the bodies of killed fighters . Winter is beginning. It’s starting to get tough.”

    Why did this go in first place if he didn’t want to fight? He thought maybe it was vacation resort?

    Some messages reveal a fear of death or injury. “They want to send me to the front but I don’t know how to fight,” one young man said. The reluctant jihadis find themselves trapped between fear of their comrades and what might happen if they return to France.

      If they could still kill infidels but just have a few more creature comforts like a working iPod, these a-holes would be all in.
      Let them die and rot in Syria and Iraq. To an individual, they are all psychopaths.

    Oh so sad, too bad. Stay there and rot. These messages should be posted in a “cry me a river” department.

    Clearly these eidiots thought they would be doing a bit of gentle sunbathing between atrocities. In reality the ISIS mob just needed a few dishwashers and dogsbodies and the occasional dickhead to sit in a carbomb.
    Want to come home now diddums? Tough titty. You made your bed, now lie in it.
    No sympathy whatsoever.

    “Hello Mudda, hello Fadda,
    Here I am at Camp Jihada ..”

    You fill in the rest.

    There are consequences in CHOOSING to join a gang of murderous thugs. They show no regret for their hatred – only regret for their discomfort. They will return to animal behavior as soon as they are warm again. Let them stay there and die miserably. Any who try to come back should be returned with identifying forehead tattoos so their dead bodies can serve as a caution to other fahkas.
