On Sunday, ISIS recruiters dispatched text messages to young men in Brussels’ Muslim-dominated district of Molenbeek, calling on them to “make the right choice” and “fight the westerners.”
The texts, according to a recent statement from Belgium’s health minister, were sent from an untraceable prepaid account and followed the distribution of a Facebook video showing Molenbeek youth celebrating last week’s terror attacks in Brussels that left at least 35 dead.
The SMS text message, written in French, says: “My brother, why not fight the westerners? Make the right choice in your life.”
The move by terrorists, dispatching call-to-arms text messages during a police lockdown, could incite tensions in Brussels and potentially leaves the recipients subject to investigation by Belgian authorities, reported by Sputnik.
