"What ISIS Really Wants" by Graeme Wood
I strongly suggest you read this excellent article by Wood!
"The Islamic State is no mere collection of psychopaths. It is a religious group with carefully considered beliefs, among them that it is a key agent of the coming apocalypse. Here’s what that means for its strategy—and for how to stop it."
"What is the Islamic State?"
Those main points:
III. The Apocalypse
IV. The Fight
AND I MIGHT ADD A WHOLE LOT OF HATE!! IMPLACABLE RUTHLESSNESS AND A WILLINGNESS TO USE ANY MEANS NECESSARY TO ACHIEVE THEIR GOALS. NOT MERELY ALSO A REGIONAL PHENOMENON BUT AN ENTITY WITH WORLD WIDE ASPIRATIONS AND IT APPEARS A DEMONSTRABLE WORLD WIDE FOLLOWING OF ENTHUSIASTS..
