Syria conflict: British jihadists are nothing like the freedom fighters of the Spanish Civil War

PUBLISHED May 21, 2014

Mashudur Choudhury has become the first Briton to be convicted of terrorism offences in connection with the Syrian conflict. It was clear from his trial that he had travelled to Syria to attend a terrorist training camp - and that he intended to pursue, as prosecutors put it, a "political, religious or ideological cause" with violent means. I will set out below some more background on Kingston Crown Court's ruling, a move that will hopefully dispel all myths about the legality of fighting in Syria.
