To lure ISIS jihadists home Sweden is offering taxpayer-funded benefits. The ‘inclusion efforts’ includes: social services, income support, employment, cooperative housing, psychiatric services and drug units.
Sweden knows how to save the world from Islamic State (IS) terrorists as they tire of beheadings, crucifixions, murders and random acts of extrajudicial killing. Just be very, very nice to them.
According to WND news service, a programme to help jaded IS fighters rejoin society has started in Sweden’s Örebro Municipality, where jihadists can obtain “psychological help to overcome traumatic experiences they may have suffered while fighting in Iraq and Syria.”
The Swedish newspaper Expressen reports that councillor Rasmus Persson advocates offering terrorists jobs so they don’t “feel alienated” as they endure their post-battlefield existential funk. At the same time Stockholm has released a document outlining its “strategy against violent extremism.” BreitBart
Australia is taking the line that those who leave to fight alongside ISIS, they have broken the law and will go to prison.
Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott on Tuesday ruled out an amnesty for Australian citizens seeking to quit foreign militant groups and return home in the wake of media reports that his government was negotiating with potential defectors.
The Australian Broadcasting Corporation reported that Australian authorities in the Middle East were negotiating with three Australian fighters with the Islamic State radical group who wanted to leave but feared imprisonment at home.
Abbott seemed to confirm their fears on Tuesday, taking a hard line that includes prison time for those who have ignored Australian laws expressly barring them from participating in the conflicts in Syria and Iraq.
“If you go abroad to break Australian law, if you go abroad to kill innocent people in the name of misguided fundamentalism and extremism, if you go abroad to become an Islamist killer, well, we are hardly going to welcome you back into this country,” Abbott told reporters.
“If you go abroad to join a terrorist group and you seek to come back to Australia, you will be arrested, you will be prosecuted and jailed.”

Those who leave their country, especially a Western country, to fight alongside ISIS, an enemy of freedom, is turning their back on their country.
