Combat kittens & hipster jihadists: ISIS target kids to spread their cause

Combat kittens & hipster jihadists: ISIS target kids to spread their cause | Global politics | Scoop.it
Islamic State members may hate Western culture, but they are quick to embrace Western technology that helps spread their message far and wide. The militants’ social media offensive ranges from videos of beheadings to pictures of cute jihadist kittens.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

"Islamic State members may hate Western culture, but they are quick to embrace Western technology that helps spread their message far and wide."
And this is their paramount weakness, alongside their hatred against women: unable to invent anything for their deeply rooted science denial, they depend so much on foreign technology that they cannot liberate anybody or found a lasting state, as by "purifying" the population finally they cannot develop a modern society, which they hate anyway. Home-locked women and scientists executed for impiety are an ominous recipe back to the Dark Ages.
