Terrifying outlaw biker gang makes itself ISIS’ new enemy

For most of the year, Western countries have been worried about their young Muslim men being drawn to fight on the side of the fascist Islamic State in Syria and Iraq.

Now, some pretty badass bikers are heading to  fight for the good guys – and the law is on their side for once.

Members of a tough Dutch motorcycle gang called the No Surrender Banditos — which news reports call the Dutch version of the American Hells Angels — have joined up with Kurdish militias battling the savages of the Islamic State in parts of Iraq, according to the Daily Mail.

The three men  aren’t breaking any laws because the beheading bastards they’re going to fight are enemies of their country, a Dutch prosecutor told the Agence France-Presse.

“Joining a foreign armed force was previously punishable, now it’s no longer forbidden,” Wim de Bruin told the news agency.

“You just can’t join a fight against the Netherlands,” he told news agency. “The big difference with [the Islamic State] is that it’s listed as a terrorist group.”

According to a USA Today profile of American Army veteran Jordan Matson, who as wounded last week fighting among the Kurds in northeastern Syria, American law is similar. State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told the paper she’s unaware of any law barring Americans from joining the Kurds to fight the Islamic State.

Bikers who live outside the law generally aren’t widely admired, but fighting the ISIS savages might change their image.
