    An interesting article from The Atlantic about ISIS recruits:

    Some of ISIS's most feverish members are recent converts to Islam, who are already intimately involved in criminality and violence

    No surprising. We know from American prisons that converting to Islam is quite common for inmates.

    We also know converts tend to take it to 11 to show the strength of their faith.

    ISIS always appeared to me to be the ultimate gang.

    This forum would be a good recruiting tool for them, littered with anti-Muslim hatred. It would make a great sub-heading under a Donald Trump poster.

    C'mon, H. Don't you know it's hateful and racist to start a conversation about an international Jihadist group using legitimate sources, especially when your legitimate source is a highly-esteemed magazine that has been in continuous publication since 1857?

    You need to understand that a bunch of Stetson-wearing yahoos sitting around doing nothing in Nowheresville, Oregon, are far more of a threat than an organization which has murdered tens of thousands of people in the ME, hundreds of people in Europe, and at least fourteen people in the United States.

    Posting news is hatred? And this section is horrendously anti Christian, so I assume that too is a recruiting tool as well based upon your line of reasoning.
