"It's the world's most spectacularly sucessful terrorist group - and the most mysterious. ISIS rocketed onto the world stage seemingly out of nowhere, beheading American hostages, bulldozing international borders, routing the American-trained Iraqi Army, carving out a new state that rules eight million people and a territory larger than the United Kingdom, perpetrating genocide, reviving slavery, pulverizing ancient monuments, and persuading its followers to carry out terror attacks in New York and Texas. But who are they? Where did ISIS come from, and how did they rise to power in so little time? What is driving them - and how can they be stopped?"--Back cover.

“U.S. blogger Robert Spencer draws hundreds in Calgary as critics call him anti-Muslim, 'dangerous' speaker – 'Some people ... find him to be credible, but by and large he's been discredited,' says Calgary rabbi”

Two very important pieces of information we should be concerned with: the Pentagon announced the other day that hundreds of thousands of small arms are missing and unaccounted for. Just how exactly have at least some of those small arms ended up in the hands of ISIS and al Qaeda in Syria?

The nonsense that we are constantly fed in the media, and by our politicians, every time another Islamic inspired outrage occurs is that Islam is a "religion of peace" and that those individuals who have committed such violence and murder have simply misinterpreted and perverted this peaceful religion, or that such individuals suffer from "mental illness."
Well this excellent book tells you that this is all nonsense and that violence and warfare are an essential and core element to the Islamic religion.
Drawing on the Koran itself, and the Hadith, Robert Spencer demonstrates clearly that the violent actions of ISIS are not a misinterpretation of Islam, but the core extension of a highly violent and expansionist ideology.
Robert Spencer demonstrates that Islam divides the world into two houses or spheres.
The first is "dar al Islam" or House of Islam and these are the lands and territories controlled by Islam and ruled under Sharia law.
The second sphere is the "dar al harb" or HOUSE OF WAR which is everywhere else in the world which is not the dar al Islam.
The west is the dar al harb, or the House of War.
Muslims believe that the dar al Islam will conquer the dar al harb, and when that day happens, and the entire world becomes one under Islam, then there will be peace.
Hence Islam is a "religion of peace".
Violence and murder to that end are therefore justified in the Koran and Muslims who commit such acts of violence do not misinterpret their religion, but understand it's core elements perfectly as does ISIS.
The goal of ISIS, or the "Islamic State", is to reestablish the Islamic Caliphate that was founded in the year 632, after the death of the Islamic prophet Mohammed, and abolished by the founder of modern Turkey, Kemal Ataturk, in 1924.
This dissolution of the Caliphate in 1924 is seen as one of the darkest days in Islamic history by Muslims.
There is a 1400 back story to ISIS that Robert Spencer explains, and that after several centuries of relative dormancy the Islamic jihad, or holy war, is back.
ISIS is there for one reason, and one reason only.
To reestablish the Caliphate and to die for the Caliphate and to usher in a world without infidels; and it has been that way since the seventh century.
The sooner the West wakes up to this reality the better!
