Syria: Al Qaeda-Linked Group Shows off New British Recruits

In a video released just today, an offshoot of Al Qaeda in Syria, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (better known as ISIS) released a video hailing the successful arrival of three new British recruits. In the clip, a British-born ISIS spokesman introduces one of the recruits, who goes on to encourage other Muslims to join him - and threatening Divine punishment for those who do not. The new arrival insists that despite measures by governments to prevent them, those who "put their faith in Allah" will find a way to join the jihad in Syria.
