Protect Isis defectors, western governments urged by Academics

Western governments have been urged by a terrorism thinktank to encourage fighters to defect from Islamic State with measures including offering them protection against reprisals.

In a report published on Monday, the British-based International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation and Political Violence (ICSR) said that global lawmakers need to remove legal “disincentives” to those wishing to speak publicly about their newfound hostility to Isis, whose reach spreads across Syria, Iraq and parts of other countries around the world.

Controversially, the King’s College London thinktank, which has been at the forefront of tracking the movement of jihadis from the UK and other countries to the Syrian civil war, also recommends that western governments encourage defectors to leave Isis-held territory and then protect them against reprisals.


Yes, lets be nice to people who Behead Christians.
