US President Donald Trump on Saturday urged “Britain, France, Germany and other European allies” to take back the Daesh militants captured by the US in Syria, hinting at the release of the fighters if Washington’s EU allies refuse to put them on trial.

In a Twitter post, Trump said that “the U.S. does not want to watch as these ISIS [Daesh] fighters permeate Europe, which is where they are expected to go”, hinting at the efforts made by the US troops in Syria on fighting Daesh and its associates.

According to The Sunday Telegraph, US administration officials fear that some of the 800 detained fighters could wreak havoc unless European governments put them on trial. Moreover, senior US officials have reportedly warned that the EU is running out of time to take back the jihadists captured in Syria.

The terror threat has remained high in the EU in recent years. European countries have faced a number of bloody terror acts, including a concert bombing in Manchester on 22 May 2017, which claimed lives of 23 people.

According to Scotland Yard, around 200 UK jihadists who went to Syria to fight alongside Daesh militants are thought to be alive and could decide to return, something that could pose a serious threat to European security.
Meanwhile, the Combined Joint Task Force-Operation Inherent Resolve (CJTF-OIR) announced in a press release on Thursday that some Daesh fighters and their associates are trying to escape the battlefield in Syria by hiding among civilians fleeing the fighting.
The United States has been operating in Syria at the helm of an international coalition since 2014, without securing approval from either Damascus or the United Nations Security Council.

While President Donald Trump declared in December that Daesh had been defeated, a report by the inspector general described the terror group as a potent force of battle-hardened and well-disciplined fighters that continues to be able to coordinate offensives and counter-offensives, as well as operate as a decentralized insurgency.

In January, the US Senate rebuked Trump’s plan to begin withdrawing US forces from Syria and Afghanistan, with lawmakers approving legislation sponsored by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell opposing a troop pull-out.
Certain members of the US Congress and Trump’s White House advisers have attempted to walk back the president’s announcement that some 2,000 US troops in Syria would come home within a month, stressing that Daesh is not yet defeated.

Let the US allied Bani Saud pay and take the care for the outcasts they created. They have sponsored the mosks and imams that radicalized the Jihadi to swear fealty to the fake caliph. They have caused the problem.

The EU countries cannot take the Daesh fighters back – they are part of the Ummah and Saudi Arabia is the motherland of these Muslim radicals.

There is a LOT of Qatari money : most of Salafi mosques in Europe are funded by Qatar and led by Muslim Brotherhood roaches while I have no knowledge about wahhabi mosques in my region, although I haven’t really investigated. I know of Salafi preacher who ended fired directly by the “users” of several mosques who actually reject radicals, which is a positive thing. Now, for those who joined the caliphate, since they adopted the “nationality” of an enemy “country”, they shall no more be granted ours. Since they committed crimes against Syria or Iraq, I think that these states… Read more »

@Daeshbags-Sux, Then let the MB Qatari take those that do not go to the Saudi motherland of the Muslim faith. They are part of the Ummah not the EU since they swore fealty to the Caliph. Just use Google to find a few Salafist mosks affiliation and sponsors.

“Brussels’ largest mosque is bankrolled by Saudi Arabia, a Salafist regime.” says Deutsche Welle. 😀

p.s. You must remember where the Paris murderers came from. Those abroad deserve justice – we pay their noose.
