BERLIN, September 20. /ITAR-TASS/. Germany considers offering a norm to withdraw citizenship from those who chose to go to Syria and Iraq to participate in military actions jointly with the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group, Thomas Strobl, the CDU federal parliamentary deputy said in an interview with Welt am Sonntag.
“We should most firmly resist members of the IS and we should use all possible legal methods,” he said. The German government with the support of local legislators have been working out a catalogue of all possible variants of actions and measures to be used for German citizens, who joined terrorists in the Middle East. Withdrawal of citizenship is one of the measures on the list, the deputy said.
“Such people should realise they do not have a way back,” said Wolfgang Bosbach, Chairman of the Bundestag's Interior Affairs Committee.
Germany watches closely relations between local Muslims and terrorists in Iraq and Syria. The intelligence service reports from Germany to Syria from the beginning of the military actions have gone 420 people, many of who are back in Germany already. As for Iraq, as many as 2,000 European citizens are fighting there, including 400 German nationals.
