Why not all these savages to travel to Syria? so long as we make sure they stop there permanently. What this case illustrates is the truly pathetic nature of the efforts to resist jihad in Europe.

Syria-bound jihadis arrested in Slovenia despite being under house arrest… in FRANCE
TWO radicalised Frenchmen were arrested by Slovenian authorities on their way to Syria, where they were planning to join up with members of the radical Islamic group ISIS, French officials have said.

By Romina McGuinness, The Express, February 9, 2017:

The men, who were both on the government’s terrorist watch list, known as the ‘S’ list, managed to escape from France in December and head towards ISIS-controlled territory despite being under heavy police surveillance, it has been revealedThe extremists fled the country while under house arrest in Bayonne, a town in southwestern France, prefect of the Pyrénées-Atlantiques region Éric Morvan said.

The men escaped France in December and were heading towards ISIS-controlled territory Mr Morvan said the men, whose names and identities are yet to be revealed, “violated the terms of their house arrest”.

The radicalised duo were not allowed to leave Bayonne and had to check in at the local police station several times a week, but somehow managed to slip under the radar.

They were eventually arrested in Slovenia, a stopover point for people going to Syria, after travelling more than 900 miles across Europe.

Mr Morvan added: “The fact that two radicalised men managed to escape while under house arrest does not mean that Bayonne is a hotbed of jihadism.”

But the news of their arrest has cast a harsh spotlight on France’s ‘new’ emergency rules.Earlier this year, lawmakers announced that France would be loosening its emergency laws, which give police greater search-and-arrest powers.From now on, officials must take into account the “personal and professional life” of suspected terrorists before setting out the terms of their house arrest and “respect their fundamental rights”.

Police are also only allowed to carry out unauthorised house raids at night “under certain conditions” and “depending on the urgency of the situation”.France has been under a nationwide state of emergency since November 2015, after an ISIS commando carried out a string of bloody bombings and shootings in Paris, killing 130 and wounding hundreds more.
