Hundreds of young men and women have left Kosovo to fight for ISIS in Syria

Hundreds of young Kosovar men and women are leaving their home country to join ISIS in Syria, leaving behind baffled parents.

Kosovo parents have told how ‘a generation’ of their teenage daughters have been seduced by radical Islam, following their husbands to Syria and the terrorist organisation.

Police say some 300 men and 36 women are known to have left the mainly Muslim country of just 1.8 million people to join ISIS – the highest per capita ratio in Europe, along with nearby Bosnia

      I knew a bunch of guys who spent time over there back in the 90’s. They pretty much all agreed we were on the wrong side.

        That should have been clear from the get-go.

  • Ed

    Can we deduce nothing from these “baffling” events beside the fact that they’re happening to “Kosovar youth”?

  • moraywatson

    “Baffled” muslim parents, yet again ! Perish the thought.

    I read somewhere that the Australians found that almost ALL jihadists found in OZ were second and THIRD generation mooslimes. surprise, SURPRISE – mooslimes doing what mooslimes do.

      Yes, that is the norm. I keep saying this and far too many refuse to accept it. My point is that it is Islam that is the problem, so even so-called moderate Muslims who flee to the West to escape this totalitarianism end up with either their children or grand children returning to the folds of authentic Islam. Also it is never a case of poverty that causes it, since they are far from poor and often “well educated” as doctors, lawyers, etc.

    So much for Imam Ben Afleck that told Bill Maher that ISIS couldn’t even fill a base ball stadium with their followers .

    “300 men and 36 women”
    That’s quite a few drone strikes.

    Their departure from Kosovo to the Islamic State raises the level of intelligence in both entities.

  • jack burns

    They all have this glazed over, smug, stoned look. Makes it all the funnier when they are caught and reality seeps in.

  • Hard Little Machine

    Good. Kosovo is a dump.

    • Justin St.Denis

      Genuinely, it is.

    Kosovo, wasn’t that another wonder work of Democrat nation building?

    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      That statue would be more apt if Bubba were dropping trou.
