1. These girls are enticed by attractive young men online. Like American teens, they

don't pay attention to the news, but spend their time on social media, where they are targeted by recruiters who appeal to their idealism and religious feelings, and also woo them, making them feel special and wanted. Perhaps there is also a bit of teenager rebellion against strict parents--you know, running off with an exciting "boyfriend" their parents wouldn't approve of, especially if their parents are strict and don't allow them to date.

In the US, teenaged girls are often targeted by sexual predators and persuaded to run away from home to hook up with the guys. Just as we are amazed that these Muslim girls are unaware of what ISIS actually is and what they have planned for their female recruits, we should be equally amazed at US girls who are so completely oblivious to the typical outcome for girls who are targeted by sexual predators online.

In both cases, the girls are made to feel important and desired, and they are promised attention, adventure, and a chance to act out against their parents.
