Jordanian MP Mazen Dalaeen, who lost his son to ISIS, has declared that terrorists’ recruiters operate in universities all over the world to attract new educated converts.

The Jordanian MP revealed that his son Muhammad was recruited in Karazin University in Ukraine’s Kharkov, where he had enrolled to study medicine. The young man became radicalized in a matter of months after coming into contact with other students who came to Ukraine from Azerbaijan, Russia’s Chechen Republic and Tunisia.

The Jordanian MP stressed that he personally rejects the terrorism ideology that influenced his son because it “encourages you to kill your fellow Muslims.”

After his son disappeared from the university, Mazen Dalaeen traced him to Turkey, but failed to get in touch with Muhammad who was trafficked to Syria and forced to become a suicide bomber just three months after becoming an ISIS fighter.

"I’ve noticed that [ISIS] operates with impunity in Turkey. One can join a terrorist group like that any time, and there are plenty of volunteers, Dalaeen said, adding that the terrorists are primarily targeting young men between 15 and 25 years old."

“This organization has recruiters all over the world. It was ISIS recruiters in Ukraine who encouraged Muhammad to join… terrorists’ recruiters come to universities again and again, hoping to attract new converts from various countries,” the Jordanian MP told.

Mazen Dalaeen said that lately the terrorists’ recruiters are getting more interested in educated students, not those young men who simply want to earn money. The recruiters are operating in many educational institutions, including the University of Jordan, he said.

“Even Jordanian girls are falling under the influence of these ideas,” he said.

“It’s no secret that social networks are now accessible for everyone. ISIS is finding its way into every home. Anyone can get information about this organization, get into the spirit of its poisonous ideas and eventually join it,” Dalaeen said.

"The youth and students in particular should be allowed to participate in political activities and join political parties, he said."

The state should teach youth patriotism, and that the motherland needs stability and security, Dalaeen shared. The lack of such educational work on a governmental level leads to the youth failing to identify themselves with their nation and ending up in terrorist organizations, he said.

“If a person is not adherent to any [political] ideas, than he tends to be affected by the ideas of terrorist organizations,”Mazen Dalaeen said, RT reported.
