According to CNSNews, Secretary of State John Kerry said recently that religion does not necessarily play a role in turning some Muslims into radical Islamic terrorists. This makes sense since President Obama claims that ISIS is not Islamic. This despite the fact that the first “I” in ISIS stands for Islamic. But never mind.
Instead, Kerry said, more pertinent factors are political repression and denial of rights, as well as “regular meals [and] companionship.”
Kerry added, “You don’t even have to be religious.” To back that up, Kerry referred to a reported case of two British men who went to join ISIS in 2014 with the books Islam for Dummies and The Koran for Dummies in tow.
To further make his point, Kerry stated “Daesh recruiting videos include a religious narrative, but also point to an idyllic picture of Daesh families having picnics and going to amusement parks.”
First, I sure hope somebody captured those two British guys as the State Department would really like to get its books back.
Second, Kerry seems to be the only person in the world that refers to ISIS as Daesh. Just like Barack Obama is the only person to call it ISIL. I believe they think it makes them sound smart and maybe it would as long as nobody hears any of the rest of the incoherent blather they say about ISIS.
But suppose that what Kerry says is correct (I know it takes a suspension of reality – like our official policy on terrorism – but just play along for a moment). Suppose that religion has as much to do with the radicalization of Muslims as eating sushi does with playing shortstop in the Major Leagues. The recruiting ad might appear something like this:

Who could not resist such a sales pitch? Possibly, not even John Kerry.
