What Jihadists Want
I thought this was a great podcast by Sam Harris that contains good information for people to hear. Sam reads from the Dabiq, which is the magazine that ISIS publishes as a recruiting/propaganda tool.
Here are some of the important points:
- Finnish woman and how proud she is of her martyred son
- The main reasons why ISIS hates us (the West)
- A rebuttal from ISIS about our foreign policy being the main reason for their hate
Another point that Sam reflected on was the common rebuttal that all this ‘Islamic’ talk is merely propaganda, which is a stupid concept. If Islamic propaganda is what is used to recruit people and get them to act violently, then it is the actual ideas that people act on.
