How ISIS recruits American Teens on Social Media

With all the craziness going on with ISIS, I found this story that discusses how they recruit American Teens on Social Media.  the story talks about how over 100 American teens have been recruited by ISIS this year alone and give a specific example to two girls who were lured to ISIS under the guise of providing humanitarian work on Facebook.

Another 19 year old was recruited through YouTube videos online.

“Unless [parents are] in the position to monitor their child’s internet access — these are 17, 18, 19-year-old children — they’re not going to know what they’re being exposed to and how they’re going to react to it,” Berg added. “The ideas being sent out are sophisticated in the sense that they portray a romantic ideal of something, in the nature of a religious obligation or duty in jihad.”
