Only 5000 Euro-Jahidis are fighting for ISIS


5000 people who are active Jihadis fighting for ISIS may return back to their home countries.

I’m sure that won’t cause any problems at all.

As many as 5,000 European nationals have traveled abroad to fight jihad and now pose a terror threat if they return home, according to Europol director Rob Wainwright.

Addressing British lawmakers on Tuesday, Wainwright said: “We’re talking about 3,000-5,000 EU nationals.”

“We’re dealing with a large body of mainly young men who have the potential to come back and have the potential or the intent and capability to carry out attacks we have seen in Paris in the last week,” he told the Home Affairs Select Committee.

Meanwhile, the head of MI5 said last week that about 600 Britons were thought to have gone to Syria to fight along Islamic state ranks.

Wainwright also warned MPs about a “security gap,” where extremists are able to evade security services and police forces online by using highly encrypted messages on the so-called “dark net.”This makes potential terrorists “effectively out of reach of the law.”

“The reality is that security authorities today don’t have the necessary capability to fully protect society from these kinds of threats,” he said.

Wainwright stressed that if people want to sleep soundly at night, there needs to be greater cooperation between security services and technology companies.

“I think we need to have the right legalization in place to allow the authorities to monitor suspected terrorist activity,” he said.

He also stressed that social media is being used by extremists as a propaganda tool, as well as a means of recruiting potential jihadists and organizing their activities.

Each and every one a lone wolf gunman, nothing to do with Islam, and we should stop making problems where there aren’t any.

No real reason to be concerned, and stop being so nasty about Islam when the real problem is just some gunmen.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
