Danish Police and security service join together in massive operation to clamp down on terrorist recruits:

Danish police has carried out arrests of four suspected ISIS sympathizers thought to have joined ISIS while in Syria with the intention of committing terror attacks. The raids took place in the Copenhagen suburb of Ishøj, where both live ammunition and weapons were found, according to police sources.

In a press release, the Police of Copenhagen states that “The Police of Copenhagen has in close cooperation with PET (the Danish Security and Intelligence Service, red) conducted the arrest of four individuals” The courts have demanded that the proceedings take place behind closed doors.

A leaked cache of 22.000 ISIS documents, including so-called ‘registration forms’ with detailed information on individual members is thought to have played a role in the identification of the suspects.

Denmark is infamously known as a hotbed for ISIS recruitment. 60 ISIS warriors from the small country has already left to join fighting in Syria, a disproportionately large amount compared to other European states.

Partly as a response, a majority in the Danish parliament, led by the Minister of Justice, Søren Pind, has declared their support for a new wave of anti-terror legislation. This includes a travel ban to Syria and tougher sentences for ISIS recruits, up to 16 years under aggravated circumstances.

Peter Kofoed, a Danish Peoples’ Party MP, states that “The good thing is that we ensure that there are not terror tourism anymore, where people can just go down and fight for terror organizations”

This article needs to be rewritten to correct errors. The word “terror” is actually “Jihad”. A “terrorist” is an “Islamic Jihadists”. During WWII, we fought Nazis, not terrorists, not Nazi extremists and not radical Nazis….we fought Nazis. Lets call it what it is. Lets call it what THEY call it…Jihad
