WLOX Editorial: ISIS reaching into our neighborhoods

The recent arrests of two college students in Mississippi should be a wake-up call to us all; of the reach of ISIS into our society.

The FBI caught the 22 year man and 19 old girl as they were about to leave the country. According to the FBI, they wanted to go to Syria and join the Global terrorist organization ISIS.

We should all be on alert. We know ISIS is very slick at social media and recruiting all over the world. Today, it appears they have reached deep into the south and found supporters.

The FBI stopped these two, but we don't know how many others the ISIS propaganda machine has reached in our own neighborhoods. We must all be vigilant in fighting an organization that beheads those with whom they disagree.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
