Westerners Volunteer To Take On The Islamic State

 

 

 

” As an estimated 2,000 expatriates from the United States and other Western nations join the Islamic State to fulfill a passion for conflict or jihad, a much smaller number of Westerners have signed up to fight against the militants. The latest: members of a biker gang from Holland.

  The head of Never Surrender, Klaas Otto, told a Dutch radio station that three of its members went to Iraq to join Kurdish fighters battling the Islamic State, also known as ISIL or ISIS.”

” The gang touts a quote from Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel on its Facebook page: “I swore never to be silent whenever and wherever human beings endure suffering and humiliation. We must always take sides.”

  The story was first reported Wednesday by NPR.

  The bikers join others outraged over the brutality displayed by Islamic State fighters, who have seized wide swaths of territory in Iraq and Syria. A former U.S. soldier from Racine, Wis., joined Kurdish fighters in northern Iraq and was wounded in a mortar attack.

” I couldn’t just sit and watch Christians being slaughtered anymore,” Jordan Matson, 28, told USA TODAY last week from a hospital bed in Derike, Syria. “These people are fighting for their homes, for everything they have.” “

Australian Planes To Deliver Weapons For Kurds Fighting Islamic State

 

 

 

 

 

 

” Australia will help deliver weapons to Kurdish fighters in northern Iraq in an attempt to counter the threat posed by Islamic State militants, while participating in further humanitarian air drops.

Tony Abbott said the US government had requested that Australia help to transport stores of military equipment, including arms and munitions, as part of a multinational effort.

“Royal Australian Air Force C-130 Hercules and C-17 Globemaster aircraft will join aircraft from other nations including Canada, Italy, France, the United Kingdom and the United States to conduct this important task,” the prime minister said in a statement on Sunday.

“Australia’s contribution will continue to be coordinated with the government of Iraq and regional countries.”

The Labor opposition signaled its support for the decision, saying the Kurdish Peshmerga fighters were the only effective barrier to Isis slaughtering civilian populations while advancing through northern Iraq.”
