300 ISIS fighters, after committing violence and jihad in Syria and Iraq, are now back in Britain. These were British Muslims who joined ISIS, and how they were able to get passed customs, is beyond me. According to one report:
More than 300 dangerous jihadists have returned to the UK after fighting with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) — far higher than previously thought, The Telegraph has learnt.
About 700 Islamists considered “dangerous” by the intelligence services have travelled to Syria and Iraq since the start of a conflict that has seen huge swathes of the region overrun by jihadists.
Of those, about 320 have now returned and are officially listed as “people of interest”.
A further 700 people –mainly British Muslims – who are not considered to be a threat to national security have also visited the region.
Previously the Government had estimated about 500 jihadists had fought with Isil and that 250 had come back.
The new estimate highlights the huge difficulty facing the security services and border agencies in trying to keep Britain safe.
The Telegraph has been told that about “two dozen” individuals who have come back have been involved in plots in the UK – so far thwarted.
