300-plus British ISIS jihadists have returned home: report

Around half the estimated 700 Britons who have gone to fight with Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in Syria have returned home, The Sunday Telegraph newspaper reported.

The weekly broadsheet’s figures, in a story about a leaked draft of the Home Office interior ministry’s new counter-extremism strategy, go further than previous estimates, of around 500 individuals leaving and 250 returning.

Around 320 “dangerous” jihadists have come back to Britain, the newspaper said.

The new estimate highlights the huge difficulty facing the security services and border agencies in trying to keep Britain safe.
The Telegraph has been told that about “two dozen” individuals who have come back have been involved in plots in the UK – so far thwarted.

    Oh goodey!
    I’m so relieved that they all made it home safely.

    7/7 will look like just a warm-up, and then the Home Office will just remove everyone’s freedoms, for their own safety.
    This is how it will play out.

    • And they’ll round up the EDL.

        And criminalize their perceived lack of diversity.

      The minions of evil in the Home Office should be rounded up for treason and given an invitation to a neck tie party.

    Treason. The government knows of them but has done nothing about rounding them up and exterminating them.

    This sounds bad

        You can’t put a price on good kabob takeout!
        And if you did, that would be racist.

        Halal-elujah! More shwarma and falafel for us all! Yippie! Yay!

    • We can expect the same. Our government was criminally negligent in opening the gates to Islam.

      When an attack occurs here, and it will, I hope the victims put the government on the stand.

  • Britain allowed this. They can clean up the inevitable bloody mess.

    And who are the dummies who let them back in?

  • Ho Hum

    300 jihadists return to the UK and NOT ONE of them has been arrested? What is wrong with the British police? They arrest people for quoting Winston Churchill but they will not arrest members of terrorist organizations involved in war crimes?

      lol I think you nailed it. From what I’ve been reading, you don’t just finish your tour and go home, or decide you’re bored with jihad and leave. My money is on these guys being back on a mission.

    Good news. When are they running for a seat in Commons?

    What a withered spineless puddle of jackanapes and popinjays the British have become.
