Where we mis­un­der­stand the ter­ror­ists

Mizzima Business Weekly - - FEATURE -

Few would dis­pute that the mil­i­tants who call them­selves Is­lamic State are bru­tal killers with an ide­ol­ogy that ap­pears to have no place in the mod­ern world. Yet there are some fun­da­men­tal false­hoods be­ing pub­lished about who they are and where they came from. The fol­low­ing views from a va­ri­ety of ex­perts and com­men­ta­tors of­fer a brief insight into the mil­i­tant group that is called IS, ISIL, ISIS or deroga­to­rily called Daesh. It should be noted that IS is of­ten taken as a la­bel or af­fil­i­a­tion by other Is­lamic mil­i­tant groups who seek to gain from the sta­tus and no­to­ri­ety of the group. They may not be op­er­a­tionally linked.
