After a Dutch Muslim sergeant in the Royal Dutch Air Force deserted to the Islamic State, now reports are emerging of 65 active German soldiers being investigated on claims of being ISIS fan boys, with as many as 29 former German soldiers gone to ISIS strongholds in Syria and Iraq.

UPDATE: Dozens of German soldiers have travelled to Syria and Iraq to join Islamic State fighters, a report has sensationally claimed. The country’s defence ministry is calling for more screening of new recruits amid fears of ISIS jihadis penetrating the German Army in order to get military training. The report dealt a further blow to German Chancellor Angela Merkel after it revealed that 65 active German soldiers are being investigated on claims they are jihadi sympathisers. Background checks on those looking to join the Bundeswehr are said to be put in place next month. The report revealed that 29 former German soldiers may have gone to ISIS strongholds in Syria and Iraq to fight with depraved militants. Since 2007, around 22 soldiers have been identified as Islamists with 17 of them being struck off. Parliament's commissioner for the military, Hans-Peter Bartel said the chilling report should be taken seriously and claimed that training in the German army is an attractive proposition. (...) A recent study from the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism (ICCT) revealed that between 720 and 760 Germans are believed to have traveled to join the barbaric death cult.
