One Hundred Dutch Jihadists Now in Muslim Countries

NOS TV station has reported that about 100 Dutch Muslims are presently active as Jihadists in countries such as Afghanistan, Somalia and Syria. Most are in Syria and have joined the Al Nusra Movement which wants to establish an Islamic state once President Assad is driven out. This movement is considered a terrorist organization by the U.S. This makes the Netherlands one of the major European suppliers of fighting jihadists. Furthermore, this number is increasing rapidly. Not long ago, it was estimated at in the few tens. Terrorism experts are afraid that these people may radicalize even further when they return to the Netherlands.
