Around 300 Swedes Fighting With ISIS In Syria

It's estimated that around 300 Swedish citizens are now fighting with the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), and the numbers are increasing:

“A hundred cases of people who have left to join the fighting have been confirmed, then there are the presumed cases..., and then there are those that have not been counted, which brings the total to between 250 and 300,” said the head of the intelligence services, Anders Thornberg, on SR public radio.

Thornberg said the flow of youths leaving to become militants in Syria was rapidly rising.

“A certain number of young Swedish men are leaving and training in camps, learning to become terrorists to use explosives and weapons.” he said.

The fear is what happens when these radicalized jihadists return home.

There are around 3,000 European ISIS fighters.  That's a small but powerful army.

Europe should be scared.
