Parent Category: Iraq
The Islamic State of Iraq or the Levant or Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is an extremist insurgent group. The group is made up of Sunni jihadists, and they are known for very violent tactics. They use kidnapping and beheading threats, and have published many videos of them carrying out the beheadings on their victims. It was estimated that in 2014, the group had between 20,000 to 30,000 fighters based in Iraq and Syria.
Syria is involved in a civil war now, 2014
The actual conflict in Syria can lead to a regional war by spreading throughout its border to Turkey, Iraq, Lebanon, and if Iran gets attacked, then there could be a World War 3.
Answer 1   Syria is having a war because the have one dictator which is a  person who is in charge and it dosen't matter what anyone else  decides he has the power. The people didn't want this because it  was a unfair process and could be very dangerous if the leader made  one wrong descision...
Answer 1 It won't, as long as the world is giving weapons to the terrorists in it. Answer 2 Neither side has the military strength or coordination to defeat the other. Without outside intervention, the conflict will likely continue for at least another few years.
Syria is currently in the midst of a civil war. The Syrian  Government is opposing a variety of independent Rebel groups. Some  of the Rebels are aligned with Al-Qaeda and some are  pro-democratic.    If the United States begins any strike on Syria (limited or not) it  will be the first...
It's not civil war, It's revolution against dictatorship regime.
The civil war is in between The Free Syrian army and Bashar Al-Assads forces
Much of Syria has become a disaster zone: In September, the opposition group Syrian Network for Human Rights estimated that more than 2.9 million homes, schools, mosques, churches and hospitals had been damaged or destroyed since the uprising began in March 2011. More than half a million are a...
The 8 year old boy simply known as Ahmed was photographed with an assault rifle while smoking a cigarette. The photo was taken by a journalist photographer in March 2013. The boy is believed to be the son of a FSA fighter however their identity is not known.
The Syrian Civil War started with Arab Spring Protests on 15 March 2011, which quickly escalated to violence when Bashar al-Assad ordered the military to fire on protesters.
The United States has not officially declared war on Syria.
In the Syrian Civil War, you have three sides.   1. Government of Syria: Bashar al-Assad and the  Government of Syria come from the Alawite minority which was  historically discriminated against because their religion is a  post-Islamic religion (even though Iran has "certified them" to be ...
The war has been going on since 15 March 2011, making it over 3 years 8 months (as of 18 Nov. 2014).
Islamic State of Iraq was created in 2006.
It is being fought all over Syria, with occassional incidents  across the borders in Lebanon and Turkey.
President Obama is torn between the Shia and Sunni sects so he may arm both.
ISIL is called ISIS because it is one and same thing. ISIS stands for Islamic State in Iraq and Syria and ISIL stands for Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant. The issue derives from its Arabic name which is ad-Dawla al-Islamiyya fi al-3eraaq w'ash-Sham (الدولة الإسلامية في العر...
Western power structure create all terrorist group like Al Qaeda,  Taliban and now Takfiries and Isis and they make lots of films and  advertisment against Islam because they want to increase  Islamophobia. Islamophobia (or anti-Muslim sentiment) is a term for  prejudice against,hatred towards,...
Answer 1: No   While this view gets plenty of attention in the Western media (Bill  Maher suggests it quite strongly), it is overly simplistic to say  that the Syrian Civil War and the Iraqi Insurgency are simply a  continuation of Sunni-Shiite confrontations that have pitted  numerous...
I don't really see an all-out ground war happening.... the publicis a bit war weary by this point, and another major offensive willbe politically damaging for whatever party lets slip with it.ISIS/ISIL is an amalgamation of groups, and used to operate asJama'at al-Tawhid wal-Jihad, and they operated...
Intersil Corporation (ISIL) had its IPO in 2000.
Iraq's largest Christian town has been overrun ISIS militants, the  French government confirmed.
Isis is the Egyptian goddess of fertility or the daughter of Geb.
ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant), known as ad-Dawla  al-Eslamiyya al-3iraaq w'ash-Shaam - الدولة الإسلامية العراق والشام  or the acronym Daa3esh - داعش in Arabic, is an extremist Sunni  Islamist organization which used to have links to al-Qaeda before ...
It is not known when the first time an enemy tunneled their way  into a bordering country. It has most likely been done for many  years until they were finally caught.
Western power structure create all terrorist group like Al Qaeda,  Taliban and now Takfiries and Isis and they make lots of films and  advertisement against Islam because they want to increase  Islamophobia. Islamophobia (or anti-Muslim sentiment) is a term for  prejudice against,hatred towards,...
ISIS is currently merging with other groups and gangs throughout  the world. Even groups who do not share their beliefs. Cell groups  have emerged as far away as South America and throughout Mexico.  They will eventually have control and wage war against Christianity  and the western world.
Answer 1 It would appear that Isis' goal for Iraq is to transform every citizen into Islamic militants. It's a terribly sad situation. Answer 2 ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant), known as ad-Dawla al-Eslamiyya al-3iraaq w'ash-Shaam - الدولة الإسلامية العراق والشا...
ISIS stands for Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, also known as the  Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant.   answer    2:Western power structure create all terrorist group like Al Qaeda,  Taliban and now Takfiries and Isis and they make lots of films and  advertisment against Islam because...
The primary concern that the US has in this regard is that these US citizens will return to the United States radicalized and will engage in jihadist and terrorist behavior upon their return.
I do not think that they will, due to the fact that we have already  been attacked once on 9/11.
No. ISIL sees Iran as a whole (regardless of its political or  factional differences) as an enemy since it (1) is a  Shiite-majority state, and (2) is actively assisting Iraq in  resisting ISIL incursions.
One theory is Islamophobia. Western power structure create all  terrorist group like Al Qaeda, Taliban and now Takfiries and Isis.  They make lots of films and advertisement against Islam because  they want to increase Islamophobia. Islamophobia (or anti-Muslim  sentiment) is a term for...
When Obama says that ISIL is not a state, he is not saying that from a geopolitical theoretical perspective, but rather from a political one. He is claiming that based on the barbarity of its actions and usurpation of legitimate political power, ISIL does not have the right to join the community of...
The two terms are not mutually exclusive. All dictatorships are governments, but there are numerous non-dictatorial governments (democracies, republics, oligarchies, etc.) However, ISIL is a theocratic dictatorship with one ruler, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who has proclaimed himself as the Caliph.
Humanitarian crimes, extortion, bribery, human trafficking, genocide,
They should stay from places many people are. Because ISIL is not trying to kill people they are just humiliating them. So you stay away like Las Vegas or DisneyLand.
First and foremost, the people under the occupation of ISIL, who, by and large disagree with its policies, would be helped. Second, those nations fighting for their survival because ISIL is directly attacking them, such as the Kurds, the Republic of Iraq, the Free Syrian Army, and the Syrian Regime...
The United States is prepared for any foreseeable and unforeseeable events and/or threats. The ISIS is not a real state and has no friends in any part of the world. Even Kim Jung Un has said he wont be their friend. And he is friendless! Basically, in summation, ISIS is not a real threat, except to...
The four competing names are only a handful of those used by Isis,  using the term Islamic State because it blurs the lines between  Islam.ISIS stands for Islamic State in Iraq and Syria because the group's  territory straddles the border between the two counties.
Isis is a mythological Egyptian God so no, Isis will not attack the  United States. Nor is Isis planning on attacking the United States.  Even if Egyptian Gods were real(Only Norse Gods are real), The  COIG, which is the coalition of International Gods has created a  cartel-like division of...
It is quite possible that they have cells here and some commentators have alleged that there are, but there is no concrete evidence yet.
Iraq, unlike ISIS is a recognised country. Also, Iraq in and of  itself is not a terrorist organisation, but is plagued by terror  groups such as ISIS and Al-Qaeda.
The United States of America is a war with Isis because they can  not agree on anything. They are also at war because Isis an firing  at the US.
Not well. ISIL is hitting numerous communities in central Iraq quite hard, executing officials and local leaders with whom it does not agree and forcing hundreds of thousands of people to flee their homes for religious reasons. Those who can get out are doing so and those who cannot are trying to...
Nobody is absolutely sure since Turkish officials have often declined to comment on this issue, but there are three general reasons that have been suggested: 1) Avoiding Confrontation: Turkey has a responsibility to protect its citizens. While there have been some cross-border ISIL attacks into...
Rest assured, there are a lot of us who'd love a crack at ISIL. I  have a grudge to settle back from when they were known as Jama'at  al-Tawhid wal-Jihad. However, this isn't the place to answer that  question.   I know we have a law in the US known as the Neutrality Act (which  is what Don...
Yes, but many believe the sporadic air strikes are not doing enough damage to halt ISIS.
The question as posed is nonsensical. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) is not itself a conflict; it is a paramilitary apparatus with certain indicators of statehood. The conflict is that ISIL is expansionary and wishes to control more territories than it currently does. As a result,...
As in the Iran-Iraq war of 1980-1988, Israel is doing its utmost to stay uninvolved in what is happening in Syria (as of 2014). Israel's only interest is in protecting its own borders and citizens, and so far none of the three sides in Syria have moved to threaten Israel (other than through...
They did take control of that area.
The Syrian Civil War is actually four-sided, so although I think you are referring to the "Syrian Regime" led by Bashar al-Assad as "Syria", I cannot be sure. The reason for the conflict between the Syrian Regime and ISIL comes from the fact that Assad was, by and large, secular and areligious....
Also known as the Syrian Uprising is an ongoing armed conflict taking place in Syria. The unrest began in the early spring of 2011 within the context of Arab Spring protests, with nationwide protests against President Bashar al-Assad's government, whose forces responded with violent crackdowns.
Answer 1   Some people think that it would be a good ideal to fight ISIS. Some  people think that ISIS is not a threat.    Answer 2   Not everyone agrees on whether or not US led ground combat troops  should be sent to Iraq and Syria to fight against ISIS. Some  believe the US has a...
ISIL follows and promotes a stringent interpretation of Sunni Islam, specifically part of the Wahhabi subschool of the Hanbali school.
Given that most states in the Islamic World are opposed to ISIL, they will have a strongly uphill battle in trying to do this. However, ISIL is more patient and dogged in its objective, so it remains a possibility, even though an extremely unlikely one.
There is no evidence that Barack Obama "boycotted" anything other  than and anti-Islamic rally and there is certainly strong evidence  that he "supports the caliphate" Historically, American presidents  have rarely celebrated the murder of heroes or the ridicule of the  true faith. President...
no Isis is a terrorist group    ISIL is an insurgent group operating in Syrian and Iraqi territory.  When people say "Syria" today, they are usually referring to the  Syrian Regime, which is led by Bashar al-Assad and controls a  significant portion of the Syria which ISIL has not yet...
ISIS occupies ancient cities rich in history, such as Palmyra,  which date back to the Neolithic period. Furthermore, and this is  probably the main reason: many of the cities that ISIS occupies are  still full of innocent civilians that could not escape the war and  are thus, involuntarily,...
ISIS is a fanatic organization. It does not want to kill  Christians. It wants to establish a state of its own kind of Islam.  ISIS people interpret Islam in their own way. They kill even the  Muslims who do not agree to their interpretations. They not only  dangerous for the Christians, they...
In South Africa their religious leaders preach against joining ISIS  in their Mosques; warning them of the dangers involved in joining.
I'm not aware that ISIS forces have ever encountered the Israeli Defense Forces on the battlefield. However, the IDF is far better organized and has better discipline than any other middle east fighting force, so it's unlikely that ISIS forces would be able to successfully engage the IDF in combat....
Many people are, yes. Others are neutral, others just frustrated  with their lies. Others are amused: "The name alone makes me laugh;  it used to be a kid's tv show, so how can anyone take them  seriously?"
as far as i concerned , most of this community composed of Sunnis.
Later this month, the UN General Assembly is going to meet to  discuss this safe immigration, which concerns everyone. Current  resettlement policies are stringent, requiring two to three years  of examination. Refugees do not have a choice as to where they will  be sent. The people coming in...
If you read what the Prophet Mohamed wrote and said, it is clear  that what the so called Islamic State is doing has very little to  do with God or the Muslim faith. The so called Islamic is just like  Hitlers Nazi party.
There's no accounting for what "people think" but Hillary Clinton  has not been talking to ISIS.
They want to erase Islam. They want that other religions will hate  Islam and be against real muslims. They want to be the strongest  group/army in the world but first if they want to make their goal  so they must erase Islam. This is why they are saying that they are  muslims.
I'm a muslim, first thing ISIS has nothing to do with our religion.  They want to be the strongest group in the world so they want to  make people fear them. Please note that ISIS is also killing  muslims.
Yes in Syria, but not so many. They are almost gone.
Yes. it is likely Hillary will re-impose sanctions if Iran attacks  Israel and kills more than 10,000 people.
We follow the Geneva convention guidelines because it's what  separates us from the bad guys or perceived bad guys. If there were  no guidelines war would be a free for all where anything and  everything would be allowed, from chemical warfare to attacks on  civilians. Hiroshima is the shining...
Yes, he was killed on November 18, 2015 as part of a raid following  the attacks on Paris.
No, this is a headline that was created out of context.    Donald Trump said "In many respects, you know, they honor President  Obama. He is the founder of ISIS."   He did not mean it in a literal way, but was accusing Barack Obama  of making military and political errors that created a...
Answer 1   He will say anything for attention, and to distract from his  inadequacies.    Answer 2   Donald Trump says Obama and Hillary are the founders of ISIS  because the Administration's actions and inactions led to the rise  of ISIS.
9/22/2016 MSNBC News reported that it was alleged to have happened,  but it has not been verified.
They believe they are, but it is not clear that all muslims would  agree.
At this time, the goal of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria is tooverthrow governments that are influenced by foreign nations. ISIS is a Sunni militant group that branched off of several otherradical militant groups in the area, which happen to include AlQaeda. . ISIS is involved in Syria...
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria did not exist in 2001. 9/11 was planned and executed by Al Qaeda for the United States'involvement in the Middle East (primarily Saudi Arabia).
Israel captured the most land from Egypt because of its acquisition of the Sinai Peninsula (from 1967-1982).
  The Iraq war was started in March 20, 2003 (Operation Iraqi Freedom). It was started because George W. Bush sent in troops to Iraq. He said that there are, " Weapons of mass destruction", but truly we are there just for oil. There are no weapons of mass destruction in Iraq just a whole lot of...
there is a war in Syria because Syrians want a change but the government don't want Syria to change.
