Terrorists exploit religion to poach new recruits

The manual, authored by emirs for the new generation of jihadists, was discovered amid the ruins on the outskirts of Damascus, Syria. It contains specific instructions on how to turn an ordinary person into someone who would then set off explosions in the subways. The film crew, shocked by the unearthed methods of terrorist recruitment, initiated their own inquiry. Their goal was to explain how not only neighbouring regions but also tens of thousands of people worldwide, are drawn into jihadist networks. Why do people often fail to recognize terrorists recruitment attempts?
Survivors of the horrors of the so-called caliphate, who managed to escape, offer their perspectives on the issue. Evidence of crimes, terrorist testimonies and accounts from their wives and children, contribute to finding answers to this question.
