Geert Wilders and other Dutch politicians are opposed to any efforts to keep “Dutch” mujahideen from traveling to Syria and Iraq to wage jihad. They’d be glad to see them go — provided that the Dutch government never, ever permits them to return to the Netherlands.

Geert Wilders: How We Can Help Our “Migrant Holy Warriors” and Ourselves as Well
Whether they are Hamas, Fatah, Al Qaida, Boko Haram. ISIS, Hizb ut-Tahir, Salafists or other, they are all part of the Islamic ummah, just as the Islamic organizations in Europe belong to the ummah. With every terror attack and death, the jihad activists confirm what they told us in the devastating attacks in Madrid in 2004: “You love life; we love death.” And the local representatives of Islam, in their mosques sponsored and ratified by dhimmi politicians, clergy and media, have not denied that, and they do not demonstrate against Islamic terror. They can’t — it is in accordance with the Koran. So how would it be possible to find agreement with these “wandering holy warriors,” or even find some way of mutually helping each other?
Almost all the countries or Europe are discussing how to deal with the danger from radicalized Muslims returning from Syria and Iraq. At the same time, according to the chief of state security with the Braunschweig criminal police, Klaus Buhlmann, thirty persons from the region of Braunschweig/Wolfsburg alone are sitting, waiting on packed luggage.
How many are there altogether in Europe? 400 to 500 fighters from Great Britain alone have been taken on by ISIS. Germany shares the problem with other European countries such as Denmark, Sweden, Great Britain and Ireland, Belgium, France, Spain and the Netherlands.
Now, a video from Aleppo, Syria has turned up in Holland, in which a couple of jihadists from the Netherlands offer a solution. They say it would be better to make it possible for those eager for war to go to jihad. Take their passports from them, as they themselves wish it: “Oh Aqsa, we are on our way! The monotheistic revolution has begun!”
In the video, Netherlands politicians are reacting positively. They are glad to take the passports. Geert Wilders welcomes the message, expanding the advice: “What we must do, for example, is not to prevent people from going to Syria. I would say, the more who go, the better. Best of all, they should take their families and friends along and make sure that they too never return to the Netherlands.”
The jihadists’ message to the Netherlands government is: “If you are so happy to be rid of Netherlands jihadists and radical youth, why try to stop them? Many of these young people have tried to travel to Turkey and are sent back again and again because the Netherlands government has given their names to Turkey. And you complain when they come back to the Netherlands. All these young people want to give up their Netherlands citizenship. They are ready to give up their Netherlands passport and nationality, if they can leave. Talk with them and the problems will disappear in a few days.”
It is wonderful when everyone’s interests coincide. Even our luggage-toting youngsters and the relevant politicians may take that to heart. It could still be ten to twenty years before the EU caliphate is declared. So, for now, off to the caliphate in Iraq!
The activities of recent researchers who want to investigate why young people in the West want to serve Allah, and what counter-measures can be deduced from that, would become superfluous. Maybe the London-based “International Centre for the Study of Radicalization and Political Violence” (ICSR) could take up the study of the Koran, and visit mosques with a candid camera.
