[su_right_ad]The girl was trying to get to Syria to join ISIS.

The girl was part of a group of 6 people who authorities believe were all boarding a plane from the Indonesian capital of Jakarta to fight alongside Islamic State militants. As they were boarding the flight, which was headed to Qatar, they were caught and arrested by Indonesian authorities. Those in the group range in age from 10 to 46 years old.

The incident comes following reports that a large number of Western teenage girls have fled to Syria to marry ISIS militants and become jihadi brides.

The group has yet to be charged with a crime, though authorities reportedly questioned a man at the house where the group was staying and an investigation is ongoing.[su_csky_ad]

    Whats the attraction with ISIS?..
    Why would anyone want to become the target of drones, bombs or machine gun fire..

    What religious fantasy/delusion drives these people to commit murder or be killed by others, or even at their own hand?
    I’m sure there must be some mental illness involved.

      For adults, surely. But what explains a ten year old? There’s adult inspiration going on there, surely.

        They should have let the 10 year old go…
        Just as an example of what will happen..(i’m kidding, sort of)

          She was probably selected as one of their ‘brides.’

          not a bad ha,ha.

          How would , uh, say a granpa that has a ‘stone in his shoe’ contact someone for a -uh – solution ?

          just asking…

        What’s up with parents these days? Bad parenting seems to be a worldwide issue.

        I think they are often most susceptible.
        It would seem that these guys market themselves like Tiger Beat in the Middle East.

        There is a lot of the notion that the best thing anyone can do is die for Allah, preferably killing infidels, that is drummed into children’s heads.

      A former mercenary told me the attraction is the same as any young person who is brought up with role models. Islamist combatants have groupies, and a cheering section of devoted fans. Their role models are not soccer/futbol athletes, they have no allegiance to pro sports, like in the west. Their culture has witnessed brutal dictatorship, regimes who murdered, raped or imprisoned dissent. Anyone as seen who puts their life on the line for change and stands against an oppressor is to be looked up at and worshiped.

      The question shouldn’t be why do they do what they do, but, what would make you idolize a person of war or strap a bomb to yourself and kill as many people as possible.
      When you answer that question you’ll have an answer as to why there is terrorism.

        Maybe we need to get this area of the world some sponsored soccer teams….

    10 years old?

    kinda young for ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ don’t you think?

    hell, I’ve got a 10 year old granddaughter that – uh- ….

    (how exactly does that technique work again?)
