Why Is the British Government Intervening FOR the Islamic State in Court?

Even as terrorists who fought on behalf of the Islamic State walk free, the British government is taking a very weird stand to defend the ISIS terrorists!


Meet Aidan James. He, like many civilized people in the west, saw what the Islamic State was doing, and found it to be barbaric. But some decided that they had the ability to do more than just Tweet about it, and so they went to Syria.

These folks who went to Syria, like Aidan James did, did not do anything wrong. They merely joined with fighters that the UK and US governments were aiding, arming, and sending troops and advisers to fight along side with. They were on the same side as their own governments.

And yet, even as the UK government fails to prosecute people who traveled to Syria to fight FOR the Islamic State, they are now prosecuting men like Aidan James for joining the Kurds against ISIS.

This is injustice in action. Theresa May needs to take immediate action to get these men released. Their crime is to fight for freedom against terror and tyranny.
