From what the article said many of them were citizens. Should they be forbidden from returning from their home country?

We have the same in Canada but it's hard to do that when they were born here.

I think if they go to fight in Jihad.....They should lose their citizenship to whatever country they are from.

Well I want to hear exactly what you think.
Well, let me start and say that no precedence from what I know exists for what I suggest. Now, for too long Germany has been too tolerant of a certain element, especially from what I hear in the north, Hamburg region. It is only a matter of time before the radicalized who have fought on the behalf of the "rebels" who have been identified as Al-Qaeda affiliates decide to turn on the land which was their home or they will use the comforts of their home as a base of operations for potential future campaigns perhaps against German allies. I too agree that any from the US who go and fight for the "rebels" should also lose their citizenship here. This twisting and turning that goes on with help these "rebels" here but attack those "terrorists" there when they are one and the same has to come to a conclusion. At very worst a policy taken up as I suggest may deter some fence sitters from being radicalized when they learn they'll lose everything once they put their beliefs into action. Not all of them are "all in" from the onset, a policy like this might be the call needed to get them to fold their hand.

So there is my exact, albeit not complete, thoughts on the matter.

It's the same in France as well.

The problem is that we officialy support syrians jihadists (called "rebels"). I wonder how the government can prevent "frenchs" citizens (or others european citizens) to fight alongside muslims "rebels" when the same government helps these "rebels" by financing and training them ?

It's somewhat contradictory.
