ISIS: The Spoils of the “Great Loot” in the Middle East

Is it any wonder young muslim males leave their homes here in the west to fight in Syria and Iraq? Is it any wonder they willingly lay down their lives? Are they being coerced into fighting in the name of their religion? No. They are willing to fight for what they  believe in.

Not too many generations ago, young Westerners did the same thing, joining up in their millions to fight in the First and Second World Wars. Are the latest crop of young so very different?

Do I condone what they are doing? Emphatically no. But I do understand why they feel the need to go on jihad.
