British Jihadis in Syria are a ‘concern’ ONLY when they return to the UK!
“… ’The question is when they return to the UK do they carry on their lives peacefully, happy to have done their bit for jihad, or do they bring jihad back to Britain?’ (This genius of a ‘source’ is brilliantly asking; “Will subject A go back to being a florist after he slaughtered, gutted and poke eyes in the name of Islam?”)
The source added: ‘Some have the will to carry out attacks and by the time they return they also have capacity to make bombs and fire guns. This is a concern that needs to be closely monitored.’Unlike the Libyan conflict, the Syria volunteers are not refugees from their home country and counter-terrorism agencies fear that once the war is over, these trained fighters will look for a new jihadist cause.There are up to 100 British fighters in Syria, and some of Pakistani origin have been identified in the forefront of foreign brigades. A team of MI6 officers working with GCHQ’s monitoring station in Cyprus is trying to trace the whereabouts of British fighters, including one who said he was a London hospital doctor.The man was one of a group of jihadists who kidnapped British journalist John Cantlie and Dutchman Jeroen Oerlemans.The pair were held for a week before being rescued and said many of the fighters appeared to be British Pakistanis with London accents.Cantlie said the man who treated him for wounds claimed to be an NHS doctor on sabbatical from A&E at a South London hospital.He added: ‘The doctor was one of the few guys who was half decent to us. But this was a group of kids on “jihad holidays” and he was an integral part.’…”
