How One Mom Is Taking On ISIS – The Daily Beast

Boudreau explained the sales pitch used by the recruiter to her son. And this may be a shock to some, but it did not involve citing tenets of Islam. Nor was the hook an anti-West diatribe about America being “the Great Satan.”

Rather, Boudreau likened the sales pitch to a recruiting effort for a gang. As her late son told her, the sales pitch involved images sent online by the ISIS recruiter that depicted Muslim men, women, and children who had been murdered, tortured, and raped by Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad’s forces in Syria. The recruiter told her son that he could in essence make something of himself by preventing the slaughter of other Muslims.
