Report: ISIS Wants You, Teachers and Bomb Makers

By    |   Friday, 10 Apr 2015 08:09 PM

The Islamic State (ISIS) is looking to boost staff operations for its would-be caliphate, says a report that the terror group has posted vacancies for assorted jobs, including school teacher, fitness instructor, press officer and — for the truly motivated — bomb maker.

"The brothers in the bomb-making department are the core and backbone of nearly every operation," a British jihadist in Syria identifying himself as Abu Sa-eed Al-Britani wrote in a vivid job description that surfaced online, The Independent reports.

"Imagine the reward in preparing a car packed with explosives for a brother to go detonate in enemy lines — you would get the same reward as the brother who pushes the button and sends 50 kuffaar [unbelievers] to hell," Al-Britani wrote.

The job at the top of the list, according to The Independent, is for press officers in the Islamic State media office.

Known for using the Internet to distribute propaganda and recruit, the barbaric, black-flagged group — alternately called ISIS, ISIL and Daesh — emerged last summer in a lightning-fast military rampage through swaths of Iraq and Syria, and with sadistic, slickly produced videos of beheadings and mass killings.

But a religiously pure nation-state also requires some workaday skills besides decapitation and suicide bombing.

So while Al-Britani wrote that an unwillingness to kill is a "sign of weak faith," he allowed that ISIS also needs non-lethal vocational help and is looking for chefs and mechanics as well as checkpoint guards and police officers, The Independent reports.

Doctors are also on the most-wanted list, which is not surprising, perhaps, given a Daily Mail report that ISIS recently executed 10 physicians — with a bullet to the head for each — for refusing to treat its wounded fighters.

Another posting by Al-Britani, for school teachers, says to "imagine the reward in nurturing a child upon tawheed [oneness with God] and jihad [holy struggle]!" The Independent reports.

The abundance of available positions appears to contradict a State Department official's claim that "a lack of opportunity for jobs" is a root cause of jihadist extremism.

The Twitter hashtag #JobsForISIS became a widely shared joke at the expense of State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf after she made the claim in an interview in February on MSNBC.
