At least 50 French citizens ‘waging jihad in Syria’

A leading French anti-terror judge has told French media he is worried about the implication of large numbers of French Muslims heading to Syria to fight a holy war against the Damascus regime.

As many as 80 French citizens are fighting with rebel groups in Syria, according to a report in French daily Le Figaro published Wednesday.

The number is far higher than the “handful” said by French Interior Minister Manuel Valls to be operating alongside Islamists in Mali, or the estimated number of Frenchmen who went to Bosnia, Iraq or Afghanistan to wage “jihad”, or Muslim holy war.

  1. France signals it may break EU arms embargo on Syria with Britain

    France has joined Britain by indicating it may be ready to break ranks with the rest of the EU and question the utility of the arms embargo for the Free Syrian Army.

    Up against a Syrian army with access to Russian and Chinese weaponry the Free Syrian Army rebels are struggling to gain ground. Now France has said it may be ready to go it alone.

    “Lifting the arms embargo is one of the only ways left to politically influence the situation. Our position, which we share with the British, is to now ask Europe to lift the embargo so that the resistants can defend themselves,” said Foreign Minister Laurent Fabius on French radio.

    “And if the EU refuses, what will France do?” asked the interviewer;

    “France is a sovereign nation, madam,” was his reply.

    The one unknown is how many of the weapons that may eventually be supplied could fall into the hands of the Islamist groups fighting the Assad regime alongside the Free Army, an outcome that would be unwelcome in London and Paris.

  2. As long as their are leaving Western nations to hopefully die on the battlefield we all benefit.
    I don’t care who’s blowing up mosques of any kind it’s a small step in the right direction.

  3. Pigs if they were going to stay gone no one would care the problem is that they won’t stay gone, they will return and start waging jihad in the west.
