In its campaign to recruit young followers Islamic State relies, among other things, on modern movies, computer games and social networks like Facebook, Twitter and others.
The ISIL recruiters are also playing up to young people’s disenchantment with the existing sociopolitical system they live in, their quest for social justice and equality and their desire to live in a better, cleaner world.
However, all these lofty ideals are being used by the terrorists as a means of camouflaging their real, inhuman intentions, the expert added.
“The first thing one coming to a totalitarian sect or group has to deal with is a substitution of notions or doublespeak because the ideas of social justice the leader of a totalitarian sect instills in his followers reflect his own idea of justice. Which means that the end justifies the means. The only way we can effectively combat this terrorist propaganda is by sticking to our traditional cultural and moral values,” Alexander Korelov said.
“Most of our people are ready to embrace these traditional values. We need to act as one against these attempts to destroy our society and work together to improve the moral health of our nation,” Alexander Korelov said in conclusion.
