What ISIS Really Wants

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.
Long but well worth the read if you want to understand ISIS.

Good read. Interesting parallels to Christianity's version of the apocalypse.

The fighters of ISIS are living the Islamic Dream: Violence, Loot, and Sex Slaves, with an instant trip to Paradise if they're killed.

Well, Harry-
That being the case, let's get everyone together over their way and speed them along on their trip with their one way ticket already punched !!

The author of the well written piece was assisted by Reza Aslan, author of "Zealot" about the life of Jesus the man. His analysis is educated and, in my opinion, as unbiased as can be. The U.S. foreign policy would be greatly advanced if Reza Aslan was an adviser.
