UN: More Foreigners Joining Terrorists



More than 25,000 people from over 100 nations have left to join al-Qaida and the Islamic State in Iraq, a figure that “is higher than it has ever been historically,” according to a UN report released Wednesday.

Why wouldn’t anyone want to join, especially the social outcasts.
