Some of the British men who have traveled to the Middle East to fight on behalf of the extremist Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) have grown disillusioned and now they’d like to return to the more tranquil confines of the United Kingdom.
The Muslim fighters are afraid to go back, though, because they worry they’ll end up in prison, according to British television network ITV.
King’s College London professor Peter Neumann, an expert on terrorism and radicalization, indicated that a jihadist recently got in touch with King’s College researchers. The unidentified jihadi claimed to represent 30 other men. His message was that British Muslim extremists who ventured to the Middle East to join ISIS radicals have now grown disenchanted with their adventure.
“We came to fight the regime and instead we are involved in gang warfare,” the Islamic mercenary said, according to The Independent. “It’s not what we came for but if we go back we will go to jail.”
