In June 2014, the group formally declared the establishment of a “caliphate” – a state governed in accordance with islamic law, or Sharia, by God’s deputy on Earth, or caliph.
It has demanded that Muslims across the world swear allegiance to its leader – Ibrahim Awad Ibrahim al-Badri al-Samarrai, better known as Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi – and migrate to territory under its control.
ISIS has also told other jihadist groups worldwide that they must accept its supreme authority. Many already have, among them several offshoots of the rival al-Qaeda network.
They fight in the name of a religion that does not belong to the christian faith and Islamic faith (Quran or Bible).
Men in black dress and hooded who destroy, kill, create terror in the name of an islamic religion who in reality doesn’t foresee the death for the other faithful who believe in different religions.
They are men who want to excuse their actions as a war between the islamic religion and the christian one.
A war that has no sense because both of these religions found their faith on God (christians) and Allah (muslims).
A God-Allah who is Love, not death. He is Respect, not Supremacy. A Respect who brings you to a peaceful cohabitation. A God-Allah who doesn’t force you, but leave you free. A God-Allah who doesn’t kill but gives life.
If someone feel reads Quran and Bible, clearly he will find it simple to understand as these two religions are based on Love, prayer and an open mind for the other religions.
ISIS wants to impose its supremacy with power and weapons.
Everywhere they pass, they kill without respect for the value of life.
ISIS wants to conquer the major number of territories and it has an important mission to come to Italy, especially Rome, in Vatican.
ISIS wants to attack the heart of Church, it wants to reach the Pope, Holy Father.
Here is the reason because Italy is living in a period of pressure and concerns.
The danger for Italy is REAL!
ISIS was able to enter Italy with barges that leaved from Tunisia, Libya.
And right now ISIS has ended to prepare itself with his terrorist cell for his attacks.
This is ISIS.
But even if these things happen, it’s important to keep on being tolerant in front of other religions and don’t think to fight in wars for supremacy of one of these.
What are its origin?
IS can trace its roots back to the late Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, a Jordanian.
In 2004, a year after the US-led invasion of Iraq, Zarqawi pledged allegiance to Osama Bin Laden and formed al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), which became a major force in the insurgency.
After Zarqawi’s death in 2006, AQI created an umbrella organization, Islamic State in Iraq (ISI). ISI was steadily weakened by the US troop surge and the creation of Sahwa (Awakening) councils by Sunni Arab tribesmen who rejected its brutality.
Baghdadi, a former US detainee, became leader in 2010 and began rebuilding ISI’s capabilities. By 2013, it was once again carrying out dozens of attacks a month in Iraq.
It had also joined the rebellion against President Bashar al-Assad in Syria, setting up the al-Nusra Front.
In April 2013, Baghdadi announced the merger of his forces in Iraq and Syria and the creation of “Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant” (ISIS). The leaders of al-Nusra and al-Qaeda rejected the move, but fighters loyal to Baghdadi split from al-Nusra and helped ISIS remain in Syria.
At the end of December 2013, ISIS shifted its focus back to Iraq and exploited a political stand-off between the Shia-led government and the minority Sunni Arab community.
Aided by tribesmen and former Saddam Hussein loyalists, ISIS took control of the central city of Falluja.
In June 2014, ISIS overran the northern city of Mosul, and then advanced southwards towards Baghdad, massacring its adversaries and threatening to eradicate the country’s many ethnic and religious minorities. At the end of the month, after consolidating its hold over dozens of cities and towns, ISIS declared the creation of a caliphate and changed its name to “Islamic State”.
