What To Do About Returning European Jihadi’s

Ever since the rise of Islamic State (I.S.), young impressionable European Muslims have been drawn to join the fight in Iraq and Syria by the hundreds. Quite rightly, governments fear the return of these people, for it is well known they have been radicalized by this insurgent group. Some have died fighting the Iraqi army, but I.S. has bigger plans for them, the effects of which will possibly be felt soon.

Many have been trained in the making of car bombs, suicide vests and carrying out other forms of terrorist atrocities. It is clear the intention is for these people to return to their home country and begin carrying out attacks on the public and government institutions. This leaves the European governments with a problem that must be tackled, but how?

Reading comments placed on English news items on the internet, shows that the general public is in favour of revoking their passports and not allowing them back into the country.

Here are a few samples: “The answer to these idiots is simple. they should be sent back to Syria whether they are British born or not and their passports confiscated, end of problem!” “If they are not dealt with very harshly, it will be a disgrace. I think they should be deported back to live with the killers they were with.” “Just send them back to Syria. Why waste taxpayers money on these traitors. Whatever happened to “You made your bed now lie in it.”

Such actions as those suggested will be fraught with peril however because of the European Human Rights Laws (as usual). Australia can be very glad it is not in the E.U. for the draconian measures they have taken would never be allowed here under European Law. They have no qualms about deporting and revoking the passport of suspected terrorists.

Here in Europe experts are of the opinion that unscrupulous lawyers will defend such people by saying they have not committed any crimes in their home country, and therefore cannot be held or charged.

The Defence Secretary has revealed that at least 69 returning radicals have so far been arrested and prosecutions are being prepared. He said, “Going abroad and fighting with Isil, Isil is a proscribed organisation, so these people are guilty of a criminal offence. And if we can get them into the courts on their return that’s what we will do. We have to put evidence before the court and that’s what is going on now.”

The Home Secretary, Teresa May, is currently busy preparing legislation to tackle this problem which should come into force at the end of November. What form this legislation will take is unknown at this time, but may mean revoking the citizenship and passports of these people.

Last year only 25 such people were arrested, but in the first six months of 2014 the number has risen to 69 so it is clear that the propaganda used by the radical Muslim clerics is working. It is known that at least 500 young British Muslims have been persuaded to fight in Iraq and Syria, and the number from all European countries tops 3,000.

It should be clear that if all 3,000 of these radicalized youth return to their home country and begin a campaign of terror there will be massive casualties, be it from bomb attacks or direct assaults. The countries most affected will be France, the U.K., Holland, Germany and Denmark where the majority originate.

The problem is, there is no legislation to cover this type of event for it has not come up before. It has to be accepted that even terrorists have their rights under European law, even if the laws are wrong in my view. If you take a hard-hearted look at this situation and realize that these are cold-blooded killers with no remorse or pity, then you must surely come to the conclusion that they are not deserving of protection through our laws.

In my opinion, if it is known that certain individuals have attended terrorist training camps or have fought for the I.S. terrorists, then they should be refused entry at the border and their passports revoked. The only way we can protect the British people from terror attacks by I.S. is to stop their killers from re-entering the country.

It must be made known to all that going to Syria or Iraq for the express purpose of joining, or being trained by I.S., will mean they can never set foot in this country again. They all have families here, and the thought of not being able to see them again may be sufficient to stop, or at least slow the flow of  recruits from this country. Many people are of the opinion that once these people are refused entry their families should also be deported.

With the projected aim of I.S. to begin attacks in Europe due to various countries joining the USA in bombing them in Iraq and Syria, it becomes essential  to have some form of legislation in place to stop these people from re-entering the country. Not to do this invites atrocities, like the rumoured attack on the subway system in London and New York.

Tube Train London – An Ideal Target During Rush-Hour!

It is difficult to imagine a rush-hour subway train blowing up in a tunnel, which will maximise the blast and the damage. The casualties could be in the hundreds from just a single bomb. There are of course many other prime targets like the Houses of Parliament or Buckingham Palace for example. If attacked, both would be a huge propaganda coup for I.S.

It is clear the potential targets are wide and varied and to guard them all sufficiently is impossible. For this reason The British government, and those of other involved European countries, must think hard and come up with legislation that will put an end to this threat once and for all! I wish them luck!
