November Friday the 13th – was a day heavy with the sting of tragedy. There were multiple terrorist attacks that took place around the world, all within a few hours of each other. It’s been the buzz of discussion in the days since, with its haphazard arguments shot off from every end of the spectrum. It is clear that the fear within some people impairs their ability to learn without a bias. Instead of elaborating upon all of the terror that burns like wildfire across the globe, I will elaborate upon the root of terror itself.
ISIS, what is it? Distorted by opinion, the world still stands very unclear on what this terrorist group is really fighting for. Isis is a Muslim extremist group, NOT LIKE other branches of Islamic beliefs. They believe in old Islam, a corrupt and suppressive set of old rules. The Muslim religion is very impalpable to many Americans, who relate the word “Muslim” to the word “terrorist”. To make an understandable comparison; Isis following Old Islam, is like a Christian following The Old Testament. Both fall under the same unrealistic grey ideas, sinners are undeserving of life and deserve to be punished. ISIS’s goal is much like Hitler’s in the time of World War II, to create mass genocide of people, who they believe, do not deserve life because they do not live under the same ideals.
ISIS’s intents are not holy, despite what they believe. Their tactics are malicious and medieval, The Atlantic notes, “We can gather that their state rejects peace as a matter of principle; that it’s hunger for genocide; that its religious views make it constitutionally incapable of certain types of change. Even if that change might ensure its survival. That it considers itself a harbinger of the imminent end of the world”. What ISIS is trying to do, is carry out the end of days prophecy, which includes – devotion, acquiring territory, creating the apocalypse, executing the battle of Rome.
To summarize the intentions of ISIS – they are a group of power thirsty lone dogs with the aim to kill. They follow every word scrolled down in old Islam so strictly they neglect to acknowledge their wrongs. The cruelty they are enacting is not the intent of old Islam but how they have chosen to execute it.
