“Around 700 French nationals are still in Syria, France’s top prosecutor said last week.”

Hope the French are not stupid enough to allow them back into the country, or if they do, arrest them and throw away the key. Or perhaps an airstrike to take them all out might be the way to go.

    That’s a nice peaceful solution Fred. Glad you haven’t got your finger on the red button. How do you propose keeping people out of their own country?

    Is the Irish government worried about our own returning jihadis?

    Well Iran manages to keep thousands of Iranians in exile since the Islamic revolution
    Perhaps the French could send a team to Iran and ask them how they manage to do it
    Beats me how they manage it.

    To Petr : I’ve seen first hand people being approached by “nice happy people just sick of the way things are” who sus out those that are harmless and susceptible. By no means is an easy nation to live in, and the at times callous nature of the French make being befriending and belonging somewhere a source of comfort be it at the hands of extremists. Things here need to change big time this wouldn’t worry me only for I saw it tonight and was pretty alarmed by what I saw and heard. Vulnerable people will get either walked over by the locals or recruited by the baddies when they’re down.

    French citizens, but also Muslim fundamentalists. And as such, they need killing.

    What is this irrational insistence that Islam in Ireland is uniquely free of fanaticism about?

    “A FORMER ISIS operative claims that there are around 40 Irish fighters with ISIS in the Middle East.”

    “The Irish fighters are perfect snipers; they use them sometimes with the Chechens, in any place they need snipers, they move the Irish,” he adds.

    “They are part of the Al Khalifa army (Caliphate army), and fought in Kobane.

    While Abu Omer says there are around 40 Irish fighters in Deir ez Zor, the Department of Justice’s official figure is that 30 Irish fighters have left here to fight in Syria and Iraq. Sources in the US State Department, however, say this number is closer to 70 in total.

    Of the Irish, Abu Omer came across, one was known as ‘Abu Omer al-Irlandi’, another, ‘Abu Yazid al-Irlandi’. They work alongside British jihadists, “you see them together” says Omer.

    We have the exact same problems as the rest of western Europe. We’re just about 20 years behind them in terms of being willing to talk about it because we’re so determined to prove how modern and progressive and tolerant we are these days compared to our backward, xenophobic past:

    “A PROMINIENT IRISH Muslim cleric has claimed that Muslim children are being taught “hatred of other communities” at unregulated weekend classes in Ireland…

    …Shaykh Umar earlier told Keelin Shanley on RTE’s Today with Seán O’Rourke that a member of his council was physically assaulted when trying to post anti-extremist flyers at a Dublin mosque.
    He claimed that up to 100 of the 50,000 Muslims in Ireland are silent supporters of Islamic State with radical ideologies.

    “These people have not been challenged or isolated. This does not mean they are violent extremists, but they are extremist in their ideology and thinking. We must stand against them,” he said.”
