35,000 ISIS recruits are well-to-do, educated

Mon, Jul 04, 2016, 04:35 PM
Contrary to the popular belief that poverty attracts extremism, the ISIS terrorist recruitment shows that the people are well-heeled and well educated.

The 35,000 recruits from 85 countries till December 2015 were mostly from the developed countries such as USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Another feature is the more the number of Muslims in a country the more are the recruits from that country.

The ISIS fighters mostly hail from countries of the Middle East and Arab nations. Those from Russia, Indonesia and Tajikistan are also joining ISIS in high numbers.

After joining the ISIS, the recruits are influencing their relatives and friends and launching attacks in their respective countries with their help.

The recruits are being attracted to ISIS poachers in social media. Why they are joining the murderous outfit is however not clear.
