Dutch Vet Arrested for Killing Terrorists in Syria
The Netherlands may be officially opposed to ISIS, it may even participate in token airstrikes, but that doesn’t mean it will tolerate its citizens going to the Middle East to defend the last remnants of civilization there from maniacal terrorist butchers. Incredibly,
A veteran of the Dutch Army has been arrested on suspicion of murder, as it is thought that he killed Islamic State (IS) terrorists when fighting alongside Kurdish YPG forces in Syria.
Jitse Akse, 47, was arrested on Wednesday. …
The soldier argued that his actions had saved innocent lives. “When you see what they’ve done … by killing a member of [IS] I have probably saved dozens of lives”, Mr. Akse told a local newspaper from his northern Dutch village.
That argument isn’t likely to win over the progressive Islamophiles who run things in Holland. Dutch authorities intone that force is only justified in a case of self-defense.
Some have pointed out that since Islamic State have declared war on Western civilisation and all out war in Syria, Mr. Akse’s actions could reasonably be interpreted as self defence on the battlefield.
That won’t fly either, since the liberal establishment would not side with Western Civilization in such a war, as it confirms by refusing to acknowledge that the war is underway even as it allows the enemy to invade.
In contrast to Akse’s situation, Muslims bred in Denmark who travel to Islamic State territory to rape slaves and crucify children are greeted upon their return with special privileges:
[N]ot one returned fighter has been locked up. Instead, taking the view that discrimination at home is as criminal as Islamic State recruiting, officials here are providing free psychological counseling while finding returnees jobs and spots in schools and universities.
Like Holland, Denmark is technically part of Obama’s Potemkin coalition that is pretending to fight ISIS. But it is clear whose side the progressives running the government are on.
