Nearly 700 Germans leave country to join terror groups

Nearly 700 German citizens have left the country to join radical Islamist forces, German officials have said. Several have died in the Middle East, but many have returned, posing a threat to German security.

Around 680 Germans had left the country to join jihadi forces abroad as of March, the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV) revealed on Wednesday. In 2014, the number of people leaving to fight with jihadis was estimated to be around 550.

“Departures to war zones show no signs of abating,” said BfV President Hans-Georg Maassen. The BfV is Germany’s domestic intelligence agency.

    “Germans” should be in quotation marks. They’re not Germans! The photo looks like it could’ve been taken in Egypt or Libya or another muzzie utopia.

      You guys on this thread beat me to the remark I was going to post. Instead of “Germans”, perhaps “quisling Germans”, or “traitorous Germans” would be more on the mark.

        I think “residents of ____” is fair.

        I reject the phrase “Muslim-American” etc. because allah’s gangsters are not citizens of western nations in terms of belief and allegiance.
