What does ISIS want?

    What does ISIS want?

    Would the terror group known as ISIS, ISIL, IS etc... be satisfied to be left alone by the west? Would a mass conversion from other world religions to Islam be satisfactory? Money, power, influence, or all of the above? Perhaps, none of the above. Is generating fear the primary motivator? What are your thoughts on the motivations of ISIS? Sure, it's a religious war. Sure, they're radical. But what do they want?

    Supposedly, they want to bring about the end times by goading a huge war to take place in some place in Syria, and until they get it, they're just gonna be an annoyance and a pain until someone brings down the thunder.

      That actually makes sense (from a radicalized perspective). I think that Islam has an eschatology similar to Christianity.

      LoliHeyposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      It's different.  In Christianity, the war will happen no matter what, and Jesus will return, but to establish peace.  In Islam, the Mahdi will bring destruction, as the world will be forced to convert.

      Zelkiiroposted 2 years agoin reply to this

      You neglect to mention that, in the Book of Revelation, Jesus establishes this so-called peace by turning 200 million people into chunky salsa. At least in the Islamic story, people could just convert and the death toll would be way, way lower.

      Lolita, the similarity is the joint belief in an anti-Christ figure and the ultimate return of Jesus to defeat him. You are correct, though, in terms of the forced conversion. I think that ISIS is currently using that narrative

    ISIS wants to establish a one-world caliphate, meaning that they will force the world to convert to Islam, or die.  They are supposed to wait for the Mahdi to arrive, and then kill everyone, but they are doing it now to hasten the process.

    What does ISIS want? Obama's State Department thinks they want jobs!

    Well that is a good question given that according to President Barack Hussein Obama they are not Muslims because Islam is a "peaceful" religion and the "future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam," - Barack Obama 2012!

    The prophet of Islam? Mr. President, are you talking about Muhammad? The rapist, pedophile, mass murderer, war monger, liar, cheater, thief and adulterer. Oh, yes let's not slander such as him. (Obama prefers to slander Republicans).

    Don't take my word for it, listen to a muslim woman. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gKkckaZO4fw

    And Mr. President if the Islamic terrorists are not Muslims, why was Bin Laden given a Muslim burial? Why was the San Bernardino duo given proper Muslim funereal rites?

    Answer, because they ARE Muslims. Actually the "peaceful Muslims" are the ones who aren't practicing real Islam because true Islam is anything but peaceful.

    So welcome ISIS to Obamaville, where evil is good and good is bad, right is wrong, and man made global warming is terrorism and terrorist are freedom fighters who just want a job. I thing ISIS may be pretty happy with Obamaville. I don't think ISIS really wants anything, Obama has given them everything they could want, starting with IRAQ and it will end with YOUR head on a stick.

    ISIS, or Daesh, (as opposed to Al Qaeda which just wanted the West out of Islamic territories) is a religious death cult that believes they will bring about the apocalypse through a great war with the West (Rome) where they believe that they will be victorious.  Again, unlike Al Qaeda, ISIS needs to hold physical territory in order to have a caliphate, so they likely would have left the West alone for a while - Western attacks upon ISIS in Syria have only hastened the inevitable.

    ISIS has nothing to do with Islam and the Muslims. The Muslim scholars have categorically rejected the isis's  claim and they haven't recognize it's existence, and among the Muslims in general, one can find a kind of hatred towards such a terror group, whose claims and activities are quite detrimental to the teachings of Islam.

    Such extremists desire an extremely fundamentalist Islamic hegemony where those who adhere to the Islamic religion are allowed to live, even thrive while those who refuse to adhere to the Islamic religion are killed, if not exterminated.  They also want a civilization, society, & culture free of Western influences.  It is their desire to have girls & women return to a very regressive type of femininity where they have very little, if no rights.  They want women to subscribe to Sharia Law where women are to adopt to a very strict feminine role of wife & mother with any deviation silenced, even punished.   In fact, these extremists want a male dominant hegemony where anyone who is not a heterosexual male will be marginalized, even demonized as an insignificant personae non gratae unworthy of living in their world.
