Neo al Qaeda: The Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham (ISIS)

Source: SETA

The presence of ISIS has captivated the whole world. Recently, ISIS has become the center of attention with its latest activities and confrontation with the anti-Assad forces in Syria. The organization is now being scrutinized for the scenes of violence reminiscencing (sic) of the Iraq war, the crack up of the military units under Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki, and the fall of Sunni cities in a jiff. While ISIS has put the international community in a state of confusion about its purpose and identity, the activities in Iraq and Syria have generated questions about its leadership and power, and its competition with al Qaeda has caused questions regarding its philosophy. This Perspectıve is dedicated to answering these questions in order to better understand the next round of moves by ISIS.
