Fez – A convicted Moroccan terrorist who once joined the Islamic State, known as ISIS, revealed how the organization selects Moroccan candidates who join the ranks of the terrorist organization in Syria.
The former member of ISIS said last Thursday, during a police investigation, that Moroccan candidates who want to join this terrorist organization are not arbitrarily chosen. They must go through strict tests that prove their psychological and physical abilities.
The terrorist, who was sentenced to three years in prison, was arrested upon his return from Syria. According to the investigation’s report, published by al Massae in its Tuesday, 5 May edition, the test for Moroccan applicants to ISIS is elaborated by the high-ranking members of the terrorist organization.
Once candidates are selected, they are not directly assigned tasks. They are first detained and gathered for a long time in an isolated polling booth, away from people. When a quorum is reached, they undergo a painful physical and psychological preparation process, which is the most difficult step of the entire recruitment process.
The goal is to create what the convict called a “new man,” a rootless identity entirely dedicated to spread the sectarian spirit of ISIS. This training strips the candidate of his native culture and creates new “values” intrinsic to the ideology of terror spread by the terrorist network.
After “brainwashing” the candidate, according to the member’s revelations, the candidates goes through another test to prepare them physically and train them militarily. They go through painful tests of physical fitness whose objective is to test their tenacity in battle, especially their capacity to demonstrate aggressiveness toward the “enemy.”
