A British man fighting for the Islamic State told researchers many UK citizens want to return because "they found out jihad is not what they thought".
The man told researchers at King's College London that "Muslims are fighting Muslims" and he "didn't come for that".
You know, the truth is many people left to help the Syrian people, then we got labelled as terrorists, now people want to come back, not to attack but because they found out jihad is not what they thought.
We all saw videos of dawlah and they hyped us up. We saw the suffering of the Syrians. But right now Muslims are fighting Muslims. Assad’s forgotten about. The whole jihad was turned upside down.
Muslims are fighting Muslims, I didn’t come for that.
