JAFFA, Israel – A Saudi government adviser has warned that even when the Islamic State is vanquished, many other “Islamic States” will follow.

“Organizations like IS will always exist, because they distort the interpretations [of the scriptures] to their own needs and affect young people,” Nasser al-Shatri said in a lecture at Bin Abdel Aziz University.

Part of the struggle against them, he said, “is to understand who these people are, what motivates them, and what religious orientations serve their purposes.”

Meanwhile, Al Arabiya Network reported on IS’s women recruiters in Saudi Arabia.
