I think this is another sign they are losing.

I guess I am pessimistic on the idea that anything a fervent, extreme, religious group like Daesh/ISL could do much of anything at this point that would have the masses breaking ranks. In their purist ideals the sinners are punished on the basis of betrayal. It goes along the lines of suicide bombers, etc., that would freely give up their lives to harm others, including innocent people, in order to advance a cause. Neither makes sense to most people and it's hard to understand such reasoning.

Honor killings is another example. Family members that use age old rules that they believe give them the right to murder a family member for what ever transgression that was committed and their government looks the other way in many situations.

I have no idea what stops recruitment and keeps people in these groups, but I do think it's going to continue to be a world wide problem for generations.
