Britons who have travelled overseas to fight for the so-called Islamic State should be "eliminated" and not allowed to return home, the newly-installed Defence Secretary has said.

A dead terrorist can't cause any harm to Britain.

In contrast, Max Hill QC, the Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation, has said Britons who joined IS through "naivety" should be spared prosecution and instead be reintegrated into society if they return home.

He said everything should be done "to destroy and eliminate that threat".

To combat the activities of terrorist in the UK, British Defense Secretary is advocating death for all UK citizens that have joined IS struggle in Syria and Iraq.


"I do not believe that any terrorist, whether they come from this country or any other, should ever be allowed back into this country".

At least 800 Britons have gone to Syria and Iraq to fight for IS and 130 of those have been killed in conflict.

Williamson's comments were criticised by former Liberal Democrat leader Paddy Ashdown, who said defence secretaries "should be measured, careful, judicious and thoughtful about what they say, not apprentice cadet versions of Donald Trump".

Prominent British militants such as Mohammed Emwazi, known as Jihadi John, and Sally Jones, have been reportedly killed by British or USA forces since travelling to fight for Islamic State.

More than 800 United Kingdom citizens are thought to have gone to fight for Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, including teenagers, women and young families.and the minister's remarks have met with criticism from former Director of Public Prosecutions, Ken McDonald, who described it as a "juvenile response".

Under British and worldwide law, an aspiration to eliminate all known British IS recruits will take a little more consideration than simply launching a drone laden with fire-and-forget missiles.

There has to be some other legal basis for justifying the killing.

MPs have pushed for more information on the decision-making process, that some critics say could amount to an unreviewable secret power to launch "extra-judicial executions".
