A fairly disturbing report here, courtesy of ABC News. It turns out that young American women are being recruited by brutal overseas terrorists online for marriage. Call it the Match.com of ISIS or whichever dating service you prefer, but this should be of major concern to all of us. There have long been fears that terrorists would use women and children in order to carry out attacks on the U.S. homeland undetected, and this would appear to be the first step.
According to the report, ISIS and other terror groups have been using social media and online videos in order to attract interest from females who may be sympathetic to their cause. As many as 12 American women have reportedly attempted to join radical Islamists in Syria, in many cases with the hopes of finding their next husband. One woman planned to join up and immediately began training in military tactics and weapons, vowing to “wage Jihad.” After an ISIS terrorist paid for her airfare, she attempted to fly to Syria, but was thankfully arrested by the FBI before she got there.
Might we see a rise in female suicide bombers in coming months and years? It’s very possible, and this startling report should sound the alarm.
