ISIS is a bigger threat to world peace and security than al Qaeda ever was: the free world must act

ISIS’s plan is to increase the number of fighters by forcing people in conquered areas to fight and by bringing in volunteers and supporters from around the world and this evil movement has followers everywhere. The name of the group is الدولة الاسلامية في العراق والشام ad-Dawlat al-Islāmīyah fī il-ʻIrāq wa-ash-Shām or Arabic: داعش Dāʻish or Islamic State in Iraq and al-Shām. “Al-Shām” is the Levant. ISIS have spoken of their goal to create an Islamic state out of portions of Syria and Iraq (they have already begun to achieve this). They plan on attempting to conquer the entire Levant which includes Jordan, Lebanon, Gaza, the West Bank, Israel, and portions of Egypt and Turkey. ISIS began in Iraq and has Iraqi leadership, then moved into Syria and will move into the most vulnerable areas on their list first, hence Gaza is more likely to be a target before the West Bank and Lebanon before Israel. It’s not only the US and Iraq that should be acting. This is a global threat and the leaders of the free world need to get their heads in the right place and take action.
