ISIS is the “Islamic State of Iraq and Syria”. ISIS is an Islamic jihadist group in the Middle East. In its self-proclaimed status as a caliphate, it claims religious authority over all Muslims across the world and aspires to bring most of the Muslim-inhabited regions of the world under its political control, beginning with Iraq and Syria.
ISIS thrived and mutated during the civil war in Syria and in the security vacuum that followed the departure of the last American forces from Iraq. They have shown a wave of destruction in their “peaceful” quest to have Islam dominate the world. From the beheadings of Steven Sotloff and James Foley to giving an ultimatum to Christians living there: Convert to Islam, pay a fine or face “death by the sword.” they have continued towards their goal.
Yet, while all of this is going on, ISIS still remains to be just in Iraq and Syria. So why does Obama continually call them ISIL? Why has the media started to follow his lead?
ISIS stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. ISIL stands for the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant. To a non muslim we wouldn’t really see much into this, but if we stop to take a look at what the Levant is, then we will see Obama is giving them far more than just Iraq and Syria.
The geographical term LEVANT refers to a multi-nation region in the Middle East. It’s a land bridge between Turkey to the north and Egypt to the south. Israel is near exact middle of the nations that comprise the Levant.
Watch Obama call them ISIL
The Islamic State has garnered millions of dollars, a vast cache of weapons, and in their latest foray have captured Syrian fighter jets. With each passing day that Obama fulfills his stated aim of doing nothing, the Islamic State grows by leaps and bounds.
The ultimate goal is not just an Islamic controlled Israel and middle east, but Islamic control on a global scale. This is their goal. It has not changed.
