All countries, religions, groups, throughout history have conquered others to instill it’s values, beliefs, and culture. Most always to further these, but rarely if at for the proclaimed ultimate victory of good over evil and the end of the present age, or to the end of the world in general.
A paradise or a Borg collective? – Who’s sole purpose is to serve its God with no regard to one’s personal happiness, expression, desires, wants, ability to grow, or to procreate like any creature on this Earth.
“ISIS makes no secret of its ultimate ambition: A global caliphate secured through a global war. To that end it speaks of “remaining and expanding” its existing hold over much of Iraq and Syria. It aims to replace existing, man-made borders, to overcome what it sees as the Shiite “crescent” that has emerged across the Middle East, TO TAKE IT’S WAR — ISLAM’S WAR — TO EUROPE AND AMERICA, AND ULTIMATELY TO LEAD MUSLIMS TOWARD AN APOCALYPTIC BATTLE AGAINST THE “DISBELIEVERS.”
Its propaganda relies on a very distinct interpretation of the Quran and other religious texts to promote these goals — and most importantly to show its supporters that they are achievable.”
What does ISIS really want?
