A shocking new report has found that just 12.5% or one in eight of 400 Brits who traveled overseas to fight in Syria on behalf of a terrorist organization have been prosecuted.

According to figures disclosed by the Home Office, only 54 fighters from the UK suspected of having fought in Syria and/or Iraq are convicted.

The Telegraph reports that security services estimate that since 2012, 400 British Muslims have joined ISIS, al-Qaeda or other terrorist groups and have since returned to the UK.

What's worse is that of those who have returned, those who poised a major risk are now “off the radar” making things incredibly dangerous.

Some security experts claim that the amount of terrorists who have returned to the UK could be as high as 1000 with some even faking their own deaths and coming back with new identities.

Chris Phillips, former head of the National Counter Terrorism Security Office told The Telegraph, “I don’t believe the UK knows how many people have left for Syria or indeed come back.”

“There are many ways of getting back into the UK avoiding checks, including bus routes and ferry crossings. What we have to avoid is a false sense of security just because we have a stretch of water between us and Europe,” he added.

David Cameron the so called Conservative PM, is in fact nothing more than a Marxist Puppet, working for the EU and ultimately the UN.

The Prime Idiot of Canada is no different.

Once a citizen leaves his country to fight the soldiers of his country (like a Brit fighting for ISIS against Brit forces), he is a traitor and the rules for such people should be applied like they were in the past.
Death either by firing squad or hanging!
