More importantly, why doesn't the media ever delve into that topic?

Because the culprits pay the bills. Cant bite the hand that feeds you.

One conspiracy at a time, Bush. Remember back when you were claiming Blackwater agents were slipping over the Iraqi border on foot each night to Homs until I helped you out with your geography? All I know is Iraq is on the mend by Iraqi's. Not Obama nor Trump. Bit of a difference with the your own Syrian debacle wouldn't you say?

IS fighters returning to home in Europe should be given the death penalty and their organs harvested for the blight that they are on humankind. The is no reforming these people and I do not want to contribute to keeping them alive or even as some insane lefties would have it with them free to roam the country once again....

There are two Islamic States. One is genuine people that just want a religious state like the Vatican etc. the other one is despicable and supported and supplied by certain (mainly three countries) with an agenda...

Yeah I figured out that it's hard to slip over the Iraq border on foot to sneak to Homs each night from the Iraq border. Unless you happen to own rocket pants. That was the conspiracy theory being peddled at the time by Burning Bush. You two should get along fine, if you're not in the same bot room ;)

I'm worried about the foreign fighters returning, but I'm even more worried about the 27% of 18-24 year old French Muslims who said 'yes' when asked if they support ISIS in a 2014 ICM opinion poll. These people have committed no crime but they live amongst us. In my old city, we now have soldiers with machine guns patrolling Jewish neighbourhoods 24/7 to protect them from attacks by people who are supposed to be their fellow citizens. The future does not look bright.

so sorry to hear that. I've seen videos of the French dindus on the sidewalks and also the slums.

Time for stricter immigration regulations now more than ever.

The question is, what should we do, if we suspect someone within our "community" as having been one ?

What happened ? What a stupid question, especially after the Raqqa operation it was pretty clear what happened.

It is not as hard as you thought:

Slipping over the border from Iraq to Homs and returning on foot is overnight is impossible.

The bottom line is that Assad's refusal to allow elections as per the will of the people and fired live rounds on peaceful protesters allowed Daesh to thrive in Syria. This conflict is over only if you believe in Santa claus.
