ISIS tries to attract deaf members using sign language recruitment video

Posted on March 9, 2015

The Mail online (who unfortunately use the term deaf-mutes in their article) has reported:

The Islamic State has released a new propaganda video showing two deaf fighters speaking in sign language and urging more Westerners to join the terror group.

The video is titled ‘From Who Excused [sic] To Those Not Excused’ – suggesting that disability is no excuse for not serving for ISIS.

In the five minute clip the two men, who are deaf-mutes and brothers, are shown working as traffic police in Iraq’s second city Mosul, which has been under ISIS control since last summer.
