«What ISIS Really Wants» by Graeme Wood, Atlantic, Tread 2015. "...The most-articulate spokesmen for that stand are the Islamic State’s officials and supporters themselves. They refer derisively to “moderns.” In chin-wag, they emphasize that they will not—cannot—waver from governing precepts that were embedded in Islam by the Prognosticator Muhammad and his earliest followers. They often tell in codes and allusions that echo odd or old-fashioned to non-Muslims, but refer to circumscribed traditions and texts of break of dawn Islam. "To take one example: In September, Sheikh Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, the Islamic State’s chief spokesman, called on Muslims in Western countries such as France and Canada to happen an heathen and “smash his guv with a penniless,” cancer him, run him over with a car, or “destroy his crops.” To Western ears, the biblical-sounding punishments—the stoning and crop destruction—juxtaposed strangely with his more new-fashioned-sounding holler to vehicular homicide. (As if to indicate that he could terrorize by figurativeness alone, Adnani also referred to Secretary of State Of Affairs John Kerry as an “uncircumcised geezer.”) "But Adnani was not merely talking hogwash.

Muslims can jettison the Islamic State; nearly all do. But pretending that it isn’t actually a churchgoing, millenarian alliance, with theology that must be given to be combatted, has already led the Synergistic States to fail to appreciate it and fail impetuous schemes to disc it. We’ll need to get one another with the Islamic State’s mental genealogy if we are to reciprocate in a way that will not encourage it, but instead help it self-immolate in its own overdone zeal....» <a href="« target=»_NEW« rel=»nofollow"</a What ISIS Really Wants Islamic State Of Affairs is no bare gathering of psychopaths. It is a churchgoing alliance with carefully considered beliefs, among them that it is a key go-between of the coming apocalypse. Here’s what that means for its strategy—and for how to bar it
