For a few weeks now, we've been getting stories in the news of young (often recently converted) muslims "spontaneously" heading to Syria to join the fight. You might assume they're joinging the side of the rebels, except, Syria ain't that simple anymore, there is no 'rebels'. It's Loyalists vs freedom fighters vs Jihadists and guess what, these Belgian muslims are of course joining the Jihadists.
All these young men (some as young as 16) suddenly answering the call of their brothers in need? There was more to it than that. Seems that the officially disbanded Sharia4Belgium is behind it. They converted and/or recruited these kids (sometimes collecting them from the local Psych ward), trained them in the Ardennes and in warehouses in Antwerp and shipped them off piecemeal as to make it seem spontaneous. In fact, some legitilatly 'inspired' muslims tried to go to Syria but were stopped, presumably by associates of S4B at the Turkish border. They only was suitably brainwashed canonfodder.
Another detail that recently surfaced is that the Belgian Jihadists were promised wives for joining the fight. Ans indeed, reports have filtered back of marriages having taken place ... quite a shock for the wives they left behind in Belgium, but hey, up to four wives is ok, right?
A Brussels imam tried to go to Syria to bring some of these boys back but he got arrested by the Jihadists and is presumed executed.
So far, the death of only one Belgian jihadist has been reported ... so it might be the case that these boys are used behind the front lines as enforcers, rather than as actual combat troops.
Islam, such a peaceful religion.
