One hundred foreign fighters who joined the Islamic State group were killed for attempting to flee the extremist group’s headquarters in the Syrian city of Raqqa, the Financial Times reported Friday.

    I’ve wondered about this… how do these ISIS fighters live with themselves?

    Yes, some are true psycopaths but I assume most have the normal range of human emotions.

    I once knew a former Jihadi. He enlisted in the Pakistani Army who then farmed him out to a Jihadi group to fight in Kashmir where he “fought” as a civilian.

    (By “fought” I think he actually just killed people. I make a distinction. ISIS is mostly not fighting… they are just killing people.)

    He was devastated by the experience. He left the group and came back home to live with his family where they basically took care of him as a mentally ill person.

    So, I assume that a lot of the ISIS fighters are ruining their own lives by doing this. Can they possibly return to their families, jobs and normal society?

    I heard that one of the “fighters” said they wanted to return home because they couldn’t recharge their iPod.

    Who is reporting this? I love to hear good news but this could be propaganda.
