You might remember State Department spokesperson Marie Harf saying the reason why so many young men are joining ISIS is that they don’t have jobs at home.

“No special qualifications are needed for the jobs whose main role is “executing a judgment of death” but also involve performing amputations on those convicted of lesser offences, the advertisement, posted on the civil service jobs portal, said.”

“A downloadable pdf application form for the executioner jobs, available on the website carrying Monday’s date, said the jobs were classified as “religious functionaries” and that they would be at the lower end of the civil service pay scale.”
