Why are Muslims leaving the safety and comfort of Europe and joining ISIS?

This is the best article I’ve read yet about why young people are leaving Europe to join ISIS. And it’s written by the former Pakistani Ambassador to the UK and Ireland, Ambassador Akbar Ahmed — a man who’s written more than a dozen award-winning books, including “Discovering Islam,” and he’s been called “the world’s leading authority on contemporary Islam” by the BBC.

Here’s the article: Why are European Muslims joining ISIS? (For those who don’t know, ISIS is so radical that it not only regularly beheads and executes people, it’s also killed 120 of its own members who wanted to quit and go home.)

Keep the faith,
