Instead of ISIS, The Hague is investigating US soldiers

The Hague is too busy to hunt ISIS butchers on the run. Instead it is investigating Afghanistan, including the US Armed Forces and the CIA.

Instead of hunting ISIS leaders fleeing in Syria and Iraq to orchestrate a Nuremberg style trial of the Islamic butchers, the Criminal Court in The Hague is investigating US forces alongside the Taliban.

The Public Prosecutor of the Court, Fatou Bensouda, has just started an investigation of Afghanistan. US military personnel, along with the Taliban, could be put on trial for committing “crimes against humanity.” This is the first time since 9/11.

Under investigation at The Hague are the Taliban of the Haqqani network, the Afghan security forces, the US Armed Forces and the CIA. The latter will also be held liable for acts committed in secret detention centers located in Lithuania, Poland and Romania, as well as in Afghanistan.

Conservative Shiite deputies on October 31 proposed an amendment to a 1959 law that set the minimum age for marriage at 18. The proposal, an amendment to Iraq’s personal status law, would allow clerics of Muslim sects to govern marriage contracts.

Families of British ISIS fighters launch new group to beat stigma & trauma

Families of British jihadists say they are victims who suffer social isolation and trauma. Now they are launching their own support group to help cope with losing loved ones who have fled to the Middle East to fight for Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS).

Fighters like Thomas Evans, 25, left their families to join the ranks of IS, exposing their relatives to the scrutiny of police and intelligence services, as well as the stress of dealing with being related to a terrorist. Evans was killed in 2015.

Justin’s Free Range Jihadis: Federal government not tracking interventions with returning ISIS fighters

Turning radicalized individuals away from extreme ideologies and helping them rejoin Canadian society is a key goal of the federal government, but it has little data on how well that fight is going.

The new Canada Centre for Community Engagement and Prevention of Violence is supposed to be on the front line of this fight. It funds research and programs that “aim to prevent and counter radicalization to violence at the individual level.”

But the government doesn’t know how many radicalized people are actually being spoken to, or who they are. Public Safety Canada says it can’t provide statistics because the Canada Centre does not directly intervene with radicalized individuals.
