Terra Incognita: Europe exported ISIS jihadism as it once did Nazism

A 28-year-old German who joined ISIS returned to Germany and told investigators that although he joined the organization he had “stood on the side,” during executions. Investigators concluded he “credibly distanced himself from the terror organization.”

According to The Washington Post the man was one of more than 870 Germans who joined ISIS. He is also one of the 290 who returned from committing genocide in Iraq and Syria and have mostly gone back to living “normal” lives in Germany. Just like the Nazis who ran the gas chambers and then melted back into German society, the ISIS members have traveled a well-trodden trail from genocide to European life.
