  • ISIS recruiting Westerners: How the ‘Islamic State’ goes after Non-Muslims and recent converts in the West

    International Business Times - 09/08/2014

    The Islamic State has recruiters all over the Western world seeking out new members though social media or known jihadi supporters in Canada, Britain, the U.S. and other largely non-Muslim nations. The militant group’s sophisticated media center is a vital part of spreading their message: Join us or die. But getting the word out is just the first step in what has proven to be a successful and complex recruitment campaign.
