Letters home from French jihadists to their parents have revealed the misery, boredom and fear suffered by Islamist recruits as the gloss fades from their big adventure.
In a series of letters seen by Le Figaro newspaper, some of the 376 French fighting in Syria have begged for advice on how to return. Others have complained that, rather than participating in a noble battle, they have been acting as jihadists' lackeys.
One complained that he wanted to go home because he was missing the comforts of life in France. "I'm fed up. My iPod doesn't work anymore here. I have to come back."

Same as what most who stupidly sign up to join any army .. they think it will be a big glorius adventure and theyll change the world .. then they get there and learn there is no glory in war .. no winners and none of the luxeries of home ..
As to letting them return home .. with luck france will reinstate the guillotine for them .. let them see how a proper beheading is done when they return after fighting with IS ...
