The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has recruited nearly 1,000 French citizens to join their jihadist ranks.
Russia Today reports that, "About 930 France’s residents and citizens, including 60 women, are either already fighting in Iraq and Syria or are planning to go there, the country’s interior minister said. Dozens of women and children were stopped on their way there."
France's Interior Minister Bernard Caverneuve, is quoted as saying that, “930 French citizens or foreigners usually resident in France are today involved in jihad in Iraq and Syria.”
According to RT, "Earlier, a parliamentary report stated that about 950 people are fighting within the Islamic militants. Among them 350 are already fighting there, 150 are on their way to war-torn zones, 180 came back to France from Syria and Iraq and 220 are planning to depart, French media reported."
The French have a history of beheadings by using the guillitoine during the French Revolution to behead tens of thousands of political prisoners en masse.
