Beheadings And Sex Slaves As Recruiting Tools

Doing it on Facebook. How ISIS recruits teens in America and other Western countries.

Beheadings communicate a form of validation to recruits, a demonstration of the unrivaled power of the new caliphate. In addition, some analysts see the groupís open trade in sexual slaves as a blatant and cynical recruitment tactic to increase the ranks of young male volunteers.

Seen in this light Mark Zuckerberg's efforts extend internet access to billions more people is great news for ISIS. Every new member of Facebook is another target for recruiting.

One might argue that we shouldn't let into America the sort of people who recruit for Jihad. But if one makes that sort of argument then one is clearly out of step with our elites. What our elites have gotten us into:

The FBI acknowledges that it has active investigations of Islamic extremists under way in all 50 states.

This is the Christian Science Monitor quoting an Islamic State recruiter as he explains his perspective:

This grooming takes place during frequent discussions of shared grievances. There is plenty to talk about with ongoing atrocities against Muslim men, women, and children, objections to US intervention in the Mideast, and widespread discrimination against Muslims in the West.
Oops, sorry -- that's actually the CSM reporter's view of the sorry fate of the ummah in the West. They migrate here, only to be victimized by atrocities and widespread discrimination. No wonder they hate us.

On the bright side, Facebook and extremist immigration keep FBI agents employed, and their jobs secure.

But seriously, I don't have a Facebook account.
