Canadian Brothers Newest in Islamic State's 'Foreign Legion'


Further testimony has been brought regarding the powerful recruitment pull of the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) on the West, as two young Muslim converts from Canada have been identified in the ranks of the extremist terrorist group.

The brothers Gregory and Collin Gordon of Calgary recently converted to Islam, taking the names Abdul Malik and Khalid. Between 2011 and 2012, they lived in the same apartment that Damian Clairmont and Salman Ashrafi once lived in; both of the two died fighting for IS.
