Thousands Enter Syria to Join ISIS

Nearly 30,000 foreign recruits have now poured into Syria, many to join the Islamic State, a doubling of volunteers in just the past 12 months and stark evidence that an international effort to tighten borders, share intelligence and enforce antiterrorism laws is not diminishing the ranks of new militant fighters.

Among those who have entered or tried to enter the conflict in Iraq or Syria are more than 250 Americans, up from about 100 a year ago, according to intelligence and law enforcement officials.

  1. Wait! Muslims killing Muslims...when did this start? (ans: over a thousand years ago and still going strong.)

    Today if we find people who hear voices in their heads that tell them to kill people - like Moh - we try to lock them up. Think about it.
