40 Americans Who Fought With Islamist Militants In Syria Returned Home

avatar

Forty Americans have returned home after joining Islamist militants in Syria, but they don’t pose a threat, says U.S. National Intelligence Director James Clapper.

As reported by The Hill:

“We’ve since found they went for humanitarian purposes or some other reasons that don’t relate to plotting,” Clapper said. “In fact at this point, we’re not aware of any of these people who have returned who are engaged in plotting” an attack.

“If they come back and they are not involved in plotting — don’t have a nefarious purpose — then that’s their right and privilege as an American citizen to come back,” he added.

An estimated 180 Americans have left to join Islamist militants in Syria, but this is only part of the larger picture. According to Reuters:

The United States and its allies believe that more than 20,000 foreign fighters from more than 90 countries have gone to Syria.

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military

Dr. Sonny Hernandez

Homosexual Agenda and the US Military is a field manual for US service members and military chaplains. This Gospel-Centered, polemical book exposes the homosexual agenda that adversely affects Religious Liberty for Christians. There are several homosexual activists that will demand equality and tolerance. However, homosexual activists are not so equal or tolerant towards anyone that disagrees with their position on same sex marriage or transgenderism. They will claim to love all, but they really do not mean all—they mean agenda. This is because the homosexual agenda has a definition for inclusivity—their way or the highway.
