“Pack Some Clean Underwear” and Other Travel Tips from ISIS

With many Western jihadists setting out to join ISIS in Syria and Iraq, supporters of the self-proclaimed Islamic State has released a ludicrously banal, English-language travel guide to prepare wannabes for the trip ahead. Titled Hijrah to the Islamic State, the 50-page e-book reads like a Lonely Planet for would-be recruits, with advice on everything from how many changes of clothes to a reminder that you shouldn’t embark on air travel while carrying explosives. (Hijra means “migration” or “journey” in Arabic.)
