Two German men sentenced for joining Islamist terrorists in Somalia and Syria

A court in the German city of Frankfurt on Friday separately found two German nationals guilty of joining foreign Islamist militant groups.

The court sentenced the first, Abshir A., to two years and ten months in prison for joining al-Shabab in Somalia, an Islamist terrorist group linked to al-Qaida. It sentenced the second, Ozkan C., to two years and eight months for being a member of Junud al-Sham in Syria, a Sunni militant group.

    Whereas in the U.S., they would be more likely to receive 20-year sentences.

      The European legal systems deal with terrorists as if they are common criminals, and operate on the premise that all may be reformed and redeemed. Myopic and dangerous.

        How can you possibly reform someone that is a Devout Muslim ?
        They are just following their Religion. They don’t see themselves as criminals. They are doing God’s WILL.
        We are so fucking stupid.
        When will our Politicians even begin to understand that our Western Values mean less than NOTHING to the fastest growing Religious Cult that the World has ever experienced.
        They are winning.

    Compared to where they have been, a German prison will be utter luxury. No doubt they will have free run of the place and be teaching terrorism 101 classes from day one to all who show the slightest interest.
