“The Hague (AFP) - The Dutch public prosecutor said on Tuesday that motorbike gang members who have reportedly joined Kurds battling the Islamic State group in Iraq are not necessarily committing any crime.
"Joining a foreign armed force was previously punishable, now it's no longer forbidden," public prosecutor spokesman Wim de Bruin told AFP.

"You just can't join a fight against the Netherlands," he told AFP after reports emerged that Dutch bikers from the No Surrender gang were fighting IS insurgents alongside Kurds in northern Iraq.

The head of No Surrender, Klaas Otto, told state broadcaster NOS that three members who travelled to near Mosul in northern Iraq were from Dutch cities Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Breda. […] ”

Maybe God will forgive you …

“It is the Ten Days of Repentance between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, a time for the Jewish people to repent for their sins and ask others for forgiveness for any wrongdoing.

In that spirit, please accept my open apology to my fellow Jews. I have truly put you all in danger.

On November 6, 2012 I took part in a historic event in of which I am very ashamed. In fact, I am quite embarrassed. I helped put into the White House an imposter and a fervent enemy of the Jewish people. Barack Hussein Obama.

Maybe my wrongdoing is more forgivable because I am not alone, I am part of the 70 percent of Jews who put an enemy of the Jewish people into the highest office in the world. Was I just a follower? Was I misled?

It seems that Jews on a whole tend to vote for people who don't like them, to side with their enemy. Maybe it's some weird Stockholm syndrome. […] ”

Yeah. Maybe it's some sort of self-loathing, Lisa Surany-Cyrulnik. Or maybe it's plain old stupidity. Who cares?

Maybe God will forgive you. But you won't get any forgiveness from me, you moron.

I used to be a typical-liberal of Jewish ancestry, too. But when Obama came along, I smelled a Jew-hating rat from the get-go. You don't have to be an Ashkenazi genius to see through that empty suit.

I did my best to vent my misgivings. Alas, none of the 70% of Jews who support Obama were swayed.

Well, f*ck 'em if they can't take a joke.
