But…but…all would-be jihadis need are educational opportunities and jobs, and then they will turn away from the jihad in droves, right? Right?
“JAILED: Terror teen blew student loan on Syria trip to become ISIS foot soldier,” by Siba Jackson, Daily Star, November 19, 2015:
A WOULD-BE teen terrorist who blew his student loan on a trip to join Islamic State has been jailed for five years.
Yahya Rashid, 19, blagged his way onto an electronics course at Middlesex University in London using forged documents in a bid to pocket more than £6,300 in grants.
Rashid spent the cash on flights to Turkey so he and four pals could travel to war-torn Syria to become IS foot soldiers.
And despite having a below average IQ of just 65, the teen managed to outfox suspicious cops at Gatwick Airport in February this year.
Rashid, together with Khalid Abdul-Rahman and Ibrahim Amouri, tricked their way onto a plane to Morocco after claiming they were looking for LOVE – not war.
They travelled to an ISIS safe house on the Syrian border with fellow jihadis Swaleh Mohammed and his wife, Deqo Osman.
But Rashid got cold feet and returned to Britain after his family begged him to come home.
The others stayed in the Syrian war zone and their whereabouts are unknown.
Rashid was arrested at Luton airport on March 31….
