Good News! Sixty Britons killed after joining Isil fighters in Syria and Iraq

MORE than 60 Britons have died while fighting for Islamic terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq, The Daily Telegraph can disclose.

The figure, confirmed by government sources, is twice that reported last year and suggests a sharp increase in the rate of British fighters killed in the service of Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.

Experts say the new death toll means that nearly one in 10 of the estimated 700 British jihadists who have gone to Syria has been killed or has killed themselves in suicide attacks since the conflict started drawing in British foreign fighters in 2012. The identities of many of those killed have emerged in social media reports emanating from Isil.

    Hardly good news. That’s not even 10%, yet. Glass more than half empty.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Military casualty figures are meaningless for a suicide death cult army.

    The casualty numbers are comparable to those civilians of the International Brigades who volunteered to fight in the Spanish Civil War…scads of untrained men, pretending to be soldiers, cut down in their thousands by modern weapons of war wielded by trained soldiers.

    The sixty Brits killed in “action” have apparently applied for visas to return to bonny old England.

    The Home Secretary has declared that, before they are allowed to return, they must renounce all ties to terrorism, be prepared to attend a course on how to live peacefully within a community and only apply for welfare if they can prove they are unable to work.

    When informed that the applicants were apparently dead, the Home Secretary issued a statement that the requirements for the dead Brits to attend a course would not be required. However, since they appear unable to work, welfare cheques would be issued to them, as per normal for muslims in England.
