What is “ISIS” …. Iraqi Syrian Islamic State!!


ISIS

~~August 11, 2014~~ 

ISIS: I’ve seen this many times recently. It keeps popping up in the news and the blogosphere. It wasn’t until yesterday when I saw a post by a wonderful blogger, Lotenna, that it really hit me. 

The atrocities committed by this “group” need to be brought to the forefront and the public needs to know.

~~Introduction~~

“Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), a predominantly Sunni jihadist group, seeks to sow civil unrest in Iraq and the Levant with the aim of establishing a caliphate — a single, transnational Islamic state based on sharia. The group emerged in the ashes of the U.S.-led invasion to oust Saddam Hussein as al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), and the insurgency that followed provided it with fertile ground to wage a guerrilla war against coalition forces and their domestic allies.

~~Origins~~

The insurgent group was launched by Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, an Arab of Jordanian descent, and flourished in the sectarian tensions that followed the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003. Zarqawi had commanded volunteers in Herat, Afghanistan, before fleeing to northern Iraq in 2001. There he joined with Ansar al-Islam (Partisans of Islam), a militant Kurdish separatist movement, for whom he led the group’s Arab contingent.

Analysts say this group, not al-Qaeda, was the precursor to AQI.”

~~MY QUESTION~~

 Would it have been better to just let them be?

The following is her comment:

Where are we headed
in a world that tortures
innocent men, women,
children for no reason
where are we headed
in a world that exists like this?

ISIS represents something
too evil to describe
the devil is a sweetheart
by comparison
what kind of people
behave with such venom
in the name of their g-d
bullshit!! they lie!

no holy book teaches to slaughter
No higher power would condone
such atrocities,
what is the world waiting for?
why not intervene now?
I can’t believe our governments
make us believe it is a local war
it IS a world tragedy
violation of human rights
it is murder!

these are massacres
what are we waiting for
to protect these people
children dying so young
assassinated for what?
tell me one good reason

ISIS had committed such treason
to the human race?
Praying for these losses is not enough
I feel powerless
useless
unable to make a dent
or take notice where it counts
Pathetic, useless,
weak, helpless.

~~Inside ISIS and the Iraq Caliphate~~

Inside Isis: Social networking for Islamist Extremists

As ISIS continue to make territorial gains in the Middle East, they are also becoming a dynamic presence online. This report looks at one recent campaign video, designed to disseminate their radical manifesto.

“These are your passports, O Tyrants all over the world”, one anonymous jihadist declares to a baying crowd as he spears a pile of the documents with a machete. Within the organisation’s mission to establish a unitary caliphate across the region, such credentials are obsolete: mere vestiges of a by-gone age of national boundaries and rival political identities. “I swear by Allah, we will cleanse the Arabian peninsula of you, you defiled ones.” Films such as this, depicting the brutal imposition of a supposedly utopian Islamic supra-state – often by means of summary executions and banning opposing sects from public life – are a sign of the increasing sophistication of ISIS’ propaganda strategy. They depict well-armed, organised militants, and are cause for concern for Iraqi ex-pats struggling to reach relatives back home. “ISIS have forgotten the real religion, and now they are full of hate and revenge”, says Salahaddin al-Beati, who has lived in Switzerland since 1996. With voices from all sides of the conflict, this report offers a chilling insight into a markedly 21st century insurgency.

    • Personally I haven’t heard of any ISIS Terrorist acts?
      Field executions with a sword a bit old fashioned and unusual today, but I hardly think the US is much better with how it conducts itself, not to mention Drone attacks all over the world., and missile attacks that usually end up targeting a wedding or a grade-school soccer game!
      The definitions are seemingly senseless now when a military guerrilla group is labeled a Terrorist Organization with no terrorist acts. Perhaps Obama is suggesting ALL MUSLIMS are Terrorists?And if not then by this standard everyone is a terrorist!

  3. Can we flood the social media sites with requests to block all terrorist and political parties without human rights attached. Facebook and Twitter have filters for nudity and paedophilia ….. surely? …. Why not incitement to kill? …..Maybe ….if they refuse to listen, we could stop using them for a week in protest….I am sure we could be without ‘Animals doing funny stuff’ pictures for that long…..
