More than 6,000 have left Europe for Isis jihad: EU

EU Justice Commissioner Věra Jourová said Europeans who have gone to join jihadist Isis fighters in Syria may number more than 6,000.

The EU justice commissioner spoke of the number of jihadists being recruited in Europe on the eve of a Barcelona meeting of European and North African foreign ministers.

Representatives from 36 countries will meet in the Catalan capital to discuss ways to fight terrorism.

“At the European level, we estimate that 5,000 to 6,000 individuals have left for Syria,” Věra Jourová told Le Figaro in an interview, adding that the true number was likely to be far higher due to the difficulty of tracking foreign fighters in the conflict.

    Cancel their passports and Europe will have 6,000 less problems.

      How dare you suggest we impinge their human rights!
      They should of course be welcomed back, forgiven, and given houses and money. It was all our fault in the first place anyway.

        PS As they have only just started collected data of who is leaving the UK in the last week, and our borders are open doors; how the hell do they know there is only 6,000?
        There could be 60,000 and we would not have a clue

      Approximately 6,000,000 terrorist sympathizers are in Europe. They will be encouraged to replace the exiled jihadists.

      Given the birth rate it’s more like 6,000 x 2 x 5.5 = 66,000 fewer problems. There’s a silver lining in every cloud.

    6,000 more carcasses for the meat grinder.

  • Islam is nothing more than numbers gone bad.

    Look closely at this article’s information. The EU presently sends 6,000 jihadis to ISIS. And this is when Muslims make up about 5% of the total UE population.

    If or when, Muslims make up 50% of the EU population, will there be 60,000 willing jihadis in the Muslim population?

    What are the chances of having 60,000 jihadis inside of the EU not having these jihadis being willing to commit mass violence in the EU? Even today, the EU can’t stop the jihadis within the EU.

    EU elites are fools to ignore this reality. As the Muslim percentage of the population grows, the number of willing jihadis will grow.

    At some point the EU will succumb, like Afghanistan and Pakistan.

    It is only numbers.

    • We have to keep hammering away at our own politicians, each of us as individuals. Make Islamic immigration a political issue. Demand it be curtailed.

    There’s been a spell of good weather in the Mediterranean, so almost 6,000 new invaders have arrived in Italy in the last few days. Net gain for Europe, zero.

      I’ve already schedule it, but thanks for the info.

    The EU needs to declare ISIS to be a roach motel where you can get in but you can’t get out. Plus it would force kiddies to consider life without first-world amenities forever.

    If for every jihadist there are 1000 jihad supporters, there must be at least 6,000,000 jihad supporters in Europe who do not go on jihad, but approve of it.
    There are 44 million Muslims in all Europe. At least 15% support jihad. That’s a number of about 6,000,000 jihad supporters. One Muslim out of six is a jihad supporter. One Muslim out of 7,000 is a terrorist.
    Canada has about 200 – 300 jihad terrorists.
