The Syrian conflict has become a profound game changer and poses the biggest terror threat to the UK and Europe for a decade, the Home Offices terror chief has warned.
Charles Farr said there are thousands of al-Qaeda-inspired fighters now operating in the war torn country with many wanting to attack the UK and other Western nations.
He said there has never been so many groups and fanatics linked to the terror organisation so close to Europe...
He said foreign fighters are flocking to the country in numbers last seen in Iraq and warned they are likely to exceed such levels...
"Groups in Syria aspire to attack Europe and have both the capability and means to do so, including returning foreign fighters coming back to Europe."
...Intelligence officials believe at least 100 British jihadists are either fighting in Syria or have returned to the UK. [and haven't done anything about it]

IOW, “we surrender”.
I believe that if the West stood up to attacks by these “fighters,” they would run back to the desert and hide.
“I believe that if the West stood up to attacks by these fighters, they would run back to the desert and hide.”
If juan mclame and owebammy have their way the rebels will be attacking Europe with weapons provided by the U.S.
I call that 0bamaCAIR.
Wasnt that obvious right from the start that radical islamists sponsored by Saudies and Quataries would flock in thousands to Syria to kill those who resisted forceful introduction of Sharia laws? It had already happened in Iraq. No lessons learned?
Sure enough, Assad as well as Saddam are dictatores in the Westen sense of the word (name a Middle Eastern state, save Israel, which is not a dictatorship) but under their rule Christians and other non-muslims used to feel pretty comfortably, not fearing for their lives and ideals.
What goes around comes around. Europe sends it Islamic fighters to the Middle East, and guess what the Middle East sends back.
In Saudi Arabia women can’t drive, the government can’t be criticized, assemble and be arrested, no Christian churches, you can’t take a bible there, women are only 5% of the work force—the lowest in the world, women must be chauffeured/chaperoned around. God forbid one of those freaks suspect you are a witch— off with your head.
Civil rights are virtually non-existent in Saudi Arabia.
Look at Syria, is it nearly that bad? I don’t friggin’ think so. Assad is a jack-wad but he isn’t nearly the jack-wad that the Saudis are.
Is McCain is squawking about that? Nope. Our government officials would wash the feet of the Saudis. It is evil and hypocritical for us to go after Assad but not say a word or try and do anything about Saudi Arabia.
Yes, I know it is about money and oil but if we can live with evil for money and oil, I think we should shut our mouth about the rest of the tyrants around the world. We don’t REALLY care about human rights violations, nope, not really. Let’s just be honest for once.
To hell with the Muslims, let them kill one another. Maybe if they are busy killing each other, they may leave the Christians alone. Eff’em
Yeah, that’s why the jihadists spring up, because of something the UK or US did. Sure.
They have been here for 1400 years. Europe has fought numerous wars against them. They did not just spring up. Present day Europe however is currently committing cultural suicide. They invited the Islamists onto their territory. Supported them financially. And sent them off to terrorist training abroad. What is coming back now, is fully deserved.
I don’t think that we *should* permit Europe be destroyed by jihad — but I do think, with the Kenyan in charge, we *will* see it.
