Netherlands: Six Muslim children taken into care as parents planned to go to Syria to wage jihad

More Islamic child abuse. Were these couples planning to take their children to Syria and get them in on the jihad as well? Anyway, “Justice minister Ivo Opstelten said on Friday the passports of 33 people suspected of wanting to join terror groups had been cancelled.” So now these 33 people are still in the Netherlands. Are they being watched, or are they free to wage jihad at home instead of going to Syria to do it?

“Six children taken into care over parents’ jihad plans: officials,” Dutch News, August 30, 2014:

Officials have cancelled the passports of two couples from Huizen in Noord-Holland and taken their children into care because of fears they were planning to head to Syria, officials said on Saturday.

There are strong indications the two couples, aged 30 and 31, and 32 and 34, were planning to travel to the Middle East to join the IS militia, the public prosecution department told a news conference.

One couple had an eight month old girl, the other five boys up to to nine years in age. The children have been taken ‘to a place of safety’ but have not been kept together, the Telegraaf reported. The children were all born in the Netherlands and have Dutch nationality. Their passports have also been cancelled.

Both the couples’ homes were searched and in one ‘things’ were found which pointed to a speedy departure, the public prosecution department said. The four adults have been taken into custody and a criminal investigation is under way.
