Just know this, IS, which stands for the Islamic State (but what was once known as ISIS - Islamic State of Iraq and Syria and ISIL - Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant) are nothing but fundamental Islamic jihadists. They have started as pocket insurgencies throughout Syria but have collected some of Saddam Hussein’s Republican Guard and moved their wave very rapidly in every direction across the middle east. If you have not watched the VICE News series on the IS, it’s a must…for everyone.
This is not something new however. All the Islamic radicals have been pushing for is a caliphate or “Islamic State” for quite a while. However, with the conflict between Bashar al-Assad in Syria and the US withdrawal in Iraq, it has become an open window for radicals to spread their tyranny across the lands.
The really frightening part is that they are recruiting worldwide. They are inviting all Muslims to join their radical jihad to crush the western world. Sadly, many Muslims are joining them, why will suprise you:
Now is the time I’m calling for Tumblr users like @sanseen123 to speak out about these atrocities. The broadcast murder of James Foley isn’t even the catalyst; it’s just one of many evil acts to draw us all into further conflict.
