    Three missing London schoolgirls 'travelling to Syria to join Isil'

    Three missing London schoolgirls 'travelling to Syria to join Isil'

    Three missing London schoolgirls 'travelling to Syria to join Isil' - Telegraph

    olice fear the girls, all pupils at the Bethnal Green Academy, in east London, might be heading to join terror group Isil - Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, also known as Islamic State.

    They travelled from their homes on Tuesday, February 17 and boarded a Turkish Airlines flight to Istanbul.




    What do we have to ask ourselves here.


    1. What is it we are not seeing that entices people like these GIRLS to join ISIS?

    2. If Isis is not representative of Islam, then why are people from seemingly civil islamic backgrounds joining ISIS?

    3. What is the draw, what is the attraction?

    4. are they being lied to, or is something else going on.

    Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us

    They appear to be of Muslim/Middle Eastern decent.

    2. If Isis is not representative of Islam, then why are people from seemingly civil islamic backgrounds joining ISIS?
    Kind of like equating the Klan as representative of Christianity.


    3. What is the draw, what is the attraction?
    Don't know. Perhaps the appeal of the Caliphate.

    Oh I am sure it is something else going on.

    That's all it takes to entice them?

    I know of no instance of people leaving thier country to join a war for racist christians that are about 200000 strong.


    christian equivalency arguments especially when tied to a racist group really don't fit.

    Then isn't that an extremist view?

    You would have to ask them.

    Americans used to go fight with foreign armies in foreign wars more frequently than they do now.

    Nothing would fit with your stereotype of Muslims as all militant extremists. Go ask the Muslim down at the convenience store or wherever you find one in your town what they think of ISIL.


    Then isn't that an extremist view?
    No. The Caliphate means different things to different Muslims.





    like?
    Teenage rebellion; one person intending to become a martyr finding some vulnerable girls to go with; a desire to perform humanitarian relief. Who knows. These things are seldom cut and dry, especially not with teenagers.

    There are the answers that fit, then there are the answers people wish to hear. You can condemn ISIS all you want, just don't get into the root cause, because that might "offend" people.

    ISIS is the truest, most honest expression of Islam-as-founded in the modern world today. Many Muslims realize this, and this is why so many flock to ISIS' banners.


    I'll admit, though, why young women in a Western country would want to join an org that sees them as disposable property is rather baffling... I imagine some degree of deception or romanticism is going on here.

    I've never considered all muslims extremists, I really wish people would try to remain honest in these discussions.

    There's gotta be something we aren't seeing with leaving ones comfort to fight for ISIS, it's baffling.
