More than 800 Islamists leave Germany to join ISIS in Syria and Iraq

German daily “Die Welt” reported on Tuesday that more than 800 Islamists have left Germany to join jihadi groups such as the so-called “Islamic State” (IS) in Syria and Iraq.

Around a third of Islamists who had joined up with the jihadi militants abroad had also returned to Germany, meaning the number of “jihadi travelers” has slightly increased since the beginning of the year, said a spokeswoman for the Federal Criminal Office (BKA). In January, BKA President Holger Münch said the criminal bureau had in fact seen a slight decline in travel by Islamists to the war zones.

    Simple solution: cancel passport, revoke citizenship so they can never return.

    • It is only common sense.

        Too much to expect from a Swede.

    Very interesting stuff.
    But when DW is involved my wise sayings brain file tends to offer up:
    “The more factual its truths today
    ..The bigger its lies tomorrow.”

    Multiculturalism is evil. If you support it, then you are evil, and must be destroyed.

    Good, more Islamic Sauerkrauts giving their lives for coalition bombing practice.
