Attractive men are used as ‘eye candy’ to lure young British Muslim girls into adopting extremist ideology,  a leading TV channel from England has reported  as  former woman extremist has claimed.

The girl named as Ayesha, a false name to protect her identity, told the BBC that she was taught to see Britain as “our enemy”, but now rejects that ideology. She was speaking in reference to three London schoolgirls who recently left the UK, apparently to join ISIS militants in Syria.

Ayesha told the BBC: “As a teenager I wanted to get my piece of eye candy and I’d take a good look, and all the YouTube videos, for some reason, they [the militants] were all really, really attractive. “It was glamorous in the sense it was like ‘oh wow, I can get someone who practises the same religion as me, who’s not necessarily from my ethnicity and that’s exciting’.” Ayesha was first contacted by extremists when she was 16 or 17 and a man sent her a Facebook message saying she was “very attractive” and telling her: “Now’s the time to cover that beauty because you’re so precious.” British police officers revealed at least 60 females have travelled to Syria amid warnings of an ISIS campaign to target vulnerable teenagers. More than a third have been reported missing, said Helen Ball, the senior national coordinator for counter-terrorism.
