To make the world Muslim, submissive to Allah, their god. Plain and simple.
Far more insightful than the summary submitted above (which leads me to believe he did not actually read it, but I appreciate the bottom line approach).
ISIS is really living in a medieval world. Our President...I still have no confidence in his decision making abilities and see him as petulant at home and feckless abroad...through his perceived inaction, might not actually be burying his head in the sand if what is said in this article is true. However to hear him submit that ISIS is not Islamic is the height of absurdity and after reading this, his statements about who ISIS is become even more absurd...but he is who he is.
This was very interesting reading. I especially look forward to knowing that Jesus will return and lead the remaining 5,000 ISIS warriors cornered in Jeruslam to victory and help to establish a world wide caliphate.
That the caliphate must engage in jihad once a year, not recognize borders and constantly expand, I was somewhat aware of... I did not know that participation in any political process was forbidden. I was also surprised to know that in the perfect world of ISIS, it would be partly a socially utopia the likes of which progressives would drool over...just gotta get over that pesky medieval interpretation of everything cultural. Talk about dystopian!
Yes, did read it. I have read the Quran twice, have taught Muslim beliefs, and have friends who live in different Muslim cultures (Africa, Indonesia, part of China, and in Guyana). I also know more about the background of how Allah became their god, than most Muslims I have talked to. I have also had Muslims live at my house & have been hosted by Muslims in the middle east.So, yes my comment is hyper-distilled. I totally agree.The article was very thorough.
I did not read the article but I have read "The Sneetches" by Dr. Seuss and I presume its the same concept. Rather than uppity snootiness they just go with murder to the umpth degree.
This was an incredibly good read.
