ISIS uses martyred Canadian in recruitment video

by The Daily Lede


An affiliate organization of ISIS known as Al-Hayat Media center which distributes mostly non-Arabic material directed toward Westerners, has released a recruitment video featuring a Canadian convert to Islam named Andre Poulin.

The video is said to be one of the first to use an English-speaking North American to entice others to join the radical Islamist organization.

In the video, Mr. Poulin who changed his name to Abu Muslim, says those who join will be very well taken care of — “your families will live here in safety just like back home.”

The video is entitled “The Chosen Few of Different Lands” and was distributed recently through the propaganda arm of ISIS, considered to have one of the slickest and most aggressive media operations in the Islamic world according to experts who track Jihadist material.
