Fatwa 68.

Yet more horrors come to the surface of Islamic State's activities in the areas it still controls in Syria and Iraq. As well as the usual be - headings, crucifixions and lashings now comes news of even something as bad if not even worse.

In a raid by US special forces on an Islamic State outpost this May gone US special forces captured an absolute treasure trove of Islamic State information according to Reuters. Amongst the information which the US has shared with its allies in the fight against Islamic State were cds, dvds, hard drives and all manner of computer equipment and also paper documents and one known as 'Fatwa 68' so US sources say contained a ruling where by it was permissable for non - Muslims or apostates as it calls them to be used for the harvesting of organs to save a Muslim's life.

The word apostate usually means those who have left the fold of Islam and converted to another faith but in Islamic State's language it probably refers to Muslims like Shia or even Sunni Muslims that do not go along with Islamic State's version of what an Islamic State should be or Yazidis or Christians or perhaps captured enemy soldiers. The document states very clearly that no doctor or medical person if it is to save a Mulsims's life should even think twice of removing organs from a non - Muslim.

It is also probable that Islamic State are selling organs on the black market as another way of bringing in revenue to help support the fighting of their war against the multitude of enemies that now surround them in the air and on land and also for the day to day running of the Islamic Caliphate.

Separately in his address to the nation the Archbishop of Canterbury addressed the danger of Islamic State and its repugnant activities and highlighted the persecution of Christians under this evil regime and described Islamic State as the equivalent to a latter day King Herod.

It is absolutely vital that Islamic State are defeated good and proper and their vile ideology snuffed from the earth but that maybe easier said than done despite the round the clock bombing by Coalition forces and the Russians and the confronting of the Islamic State by the Iraqi army backed up by Coalition air power that is making good progress in some areas against the Caliphate known as Islamic State.

Also in the raid by US special forces the Islamic State's financial advisor Abu Sayaff was killed and his wife captured.

      I think it best not to become involved in a blood feud. This is especially true when the blood feud is on the other side of the world.

      There are several different groups in the Mideast all trying to gather political support. Of these groups, which is gaining support and why? Why are people joining such groups?

      The mission of IS is to spread its Caliphate around the world.

      What caused ISIS to begin in the first place?

      Is it growing?

      If it is growing, why?

      What is their doctrine or motivation?
