    To say that ISIL isn't Islamic is just stupid. Of course they are. There are fanatical arms of every religion.

    I believe so. It's a key point to understand.
    IS isn't just some "terrorist army" It govern territory, collects taxes, ( along with imposition of face veils, beheadings, crucifixions, looting and selling antiquities, etc.)
    The caliphate is a long term goal, not just in Syria & Iraq

    They even have: ( I can't find the source)

    Sowing terror via Twitter
    ISIS is by far the most media-savvy militant group to emerge in the Middle East.
    Its social-media director is believed to be an American: Ahmad Abousamra, 33, a dual U.S.-Syrian citizen who was born in France and raised in the Boston area

    So, here's a question: were the fanatics in the Salem witch hunts Christians?

    Re: Is ISIL Islamic?

    The last caliphate ended with the collapse of the Ottoman Empire in World War I, and establishing a state to be the home of the faithful has been the dream of Islamic fundamentalists for more than half a century.
    Al-Baghdadi claims to trace his lineage to the Prophet Mohammed's Quraysh tribe, and his nom de guerre recalls the first caliph: Abu Bakr, father-in-law and close adviser of Mohammed.
    In July, he addressed the world's Muslims in a sermon. "I am the wali [leader] who presides over you," al-Baghdadi said at the Grand Mosque in Mosul, Iraq. "Obey me as long as I obey God in you."

    Yes, they were. They weren't any other religion.

    it is still an idea worthy of an eyeroll and we should not give credence to ISIS"s delusions of granduer when we start addressing them as a caliphate.
