‘Why not fight the westerners?’ ISIS sends message to Muslim boys after Brussels attacks

YOUNG Muslims living in the jihadi hotspot of Molenbeek in Brussels are being groomed by Islamic State to fight against westerners in the wake of devastating terror attacks in the Belgian capital, it has been revealed.
