The Caribbean nation of Trinidad and Tobago is now the nation with the highest recruitment rates for Islamic State fighters in the Western Hemisphere. This illustrates the continued drip, drip, drip advancement of Islamofascism into the West.
The efforts is led by an Islamic militant Islamist by the name of Yasin Abu Bakr (who leads the group Jamaat al Muslimeen), who in 1990 attempted an armed coup of the government in that nation. Today he is simply a recruitment tool for the most bloodthirsty and totalitarian Islamofascist group on the face of the planet: the Islamic State.
The usual reasons are given for the potency of this power-hungry assh*le's message - including poverty, crime, etc., but there is enough blame to go around. There is no good reason for poverty levels in Trinidad and Tobago to be so high as it is a prime travel destination, and the birth place of calypso music with one of the best Carnival celebrations on the planet. Like many of the nations in the Caribbean, government corruption and graft is a factor in the division of the classes.
The larger point here is that - like a cancer taking advantage of a weakened immune system, douchebags like Abu Bakr are facilitating the advancement of Islamofascism and death into a Caribbean paradise.
Maybe if the privileged understood that they would be the first ones executed would the Islamofascists win, they might be more cautious on how they bleed their systems for wealth and profit.
