Female ISIS Recruiter is a Journalism Student Living in Seattle
No, not Seattle, Iraq. Not Seattle, Syria, either. Seattle, Washington!
On April 28, a high-ranking female ISIS officer with more than 8,000 followers on Twitter and primarily tasked with recruiting women to join the terror group was identified by Channel 4 News as a journalism student in her early 20s living in Seattle.
The now suspended Twitter handle “@_UmmWaqqas” reportedly belongs to Rawdah Abdisalaam, although it was not confirmed that she is the sole account user, Channel 4 News reports.
By living in a country she is supposed to despise, does this woman understand the blatant hypocrisy and overwhelming irony of her situation? It’s comical, sad, aggravating, and pathetic all in one.
Why is ISIS recruiting women in the first place? They don’t exactly treat them like first-class citizens.
You hear many stories where Americans head to Syria and Islamic nations in order to join this terrorist group, though I suppose with how radical many people have become these days, it makes sense to plant a recruiter within “The Great Satan.”
“What it really demonstrates is the tremendous power of social media,” Jonathan Adelman, a professor at the University of Denver’s Josef Korbel School of International Studies, told the Denver Post after ISIS lured three teenage girls from Colorado.
Another possible factor that may encourage young women to join ISIS is the limelight that comes with leaving the Western world to pursue a radical life.
