Symbols & Flag
I am Christian
I will not submit to Islam or ISIS
We are Nazarene... "And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it". The Christians in Iraq are being murdered just for what they believe. This sign is being painted on doors by members of the ISIS so they know who to target.
What is ISIS?
ISIS, ISIL, IS, DAESH, or Da'ish are all refer to the Sunni Islamist extremist group that currently controls cities in Iraq and Syria
operates in some parts of the Middle East, Central Asia, and South Asia.
ISIS is fueled by their objective to establish an Islamic state in the Middle East and will accept anyone to join as long as they are Sunni Muslim. They are made up of fundamentalists and Jihadists.
What are Jihadists?
Jihadists ARE NOT:
people who kill innocent people
people who fight out of anger and hatred
people who kill others because they have different beliefs than them
people who kill others because they are not Muslim
Jihad is an Arabic word that means to struggle or survive. Jihad is very sacred as it plays an important role in the doctrine of Islam.
...however it is extremists groups like the ISIS whose acts contradict the beliefs that they use to justify it.
Eastern Syria, Western Iraq and Southern Turkey
How ISIS Began?
First, there was a militant group based in Iraq
Their leader soon then pledged alliance to Osama Bin Laden, who was the founder of another group called Al Qaeda
After the deaths of their leaders the leadership was passed on to the new leader (the leader of ISIS) .. from there, the Al Qaeda separated from ISIS as ISIS imposed more authority on neighboring countries of Syria and Iraq
ISIS' main goal is to create a Caliphate
ISIS will punish anyone who does not follow the rules of which they impose
What is a Caliphate?
A Caliphate is led by a Caliph that acts as a political successor to the Prophet Muhammad.
Acts under Sharia Law - some laws include:
women cannot leave their homes unless necessary or accompanied by a man
amputations occur if someone steals
Against and For ISIS
The Iraqi Armed Forces, Iraqi Kurdistan Forces, Iraqi Turk men Front, & the Shabak Militia all fight against Iraq
(one who faces death)
fight to win Kurdistan territory
At the moment, countries like Russia, UK, Canada, Denmark, and Germany have been sending military support
Who is ISIS' Target?
Yazidi (Kurdish religious minority)
and other non-Muslim communities
If non-Muslims refuse to pay money to ISIS, they must convert or they will face death
Because ISIS is the first Jihadist group to announce the establishment of a caliphate - this shows that they are in the lead of a global race between other Islamist and Jihadist groups
The amount of foreign fighters are increasing. People from North America aged 18-25 are joining ISIS - mainly because they are seeking a strong sense of belonging and identity (gives them a reason for being part of something larger than themselves)
Racism and ignorance is increasing. Due to the acts of the ISIS, the rest of the world (mainly the West) paints a completely different picture as to what Islam is ex. American Sniper - the film "erases US criminality in Iraq while portraying the local Arab population, including small children, as irrationally violent monsters."
ISIS and other radical groups are deadly serious about reaching out to young people with their distorted version of meaning that leads to death and destruction - they realize that the youth are their largest targets to join them
Prime Minister Stephan Harper announces that Canadian troops will fight against targets in Syria and Iraq for as long as the militant group poses a threat
Harper believes the group has a threat on Canada. The mission would also last from anywhere from six months to March 2016

Theories Involving Saddam Hussein & ISIS
Black-and-White ISIS flag
The flag is often called the Black Standard or the Black Banner.
...The Black Banner of Islam is an idea goes back to the 8th century, when the Second Dynasty of Islam came to power with black banners.
The entire Shahada is found on many different flags throughout the Islamic world
Their use of this phrase is sending very much the wrong message.
...If we all accept that this is what this message means, we will understand that the ISIS has changed the meaning of something that has brought millions of people peace and comfort.
The white writing at the top of the flag is the first half of an Islamic phrase called the Shahada, which reads:
Symbol on the flag is the white circle at its center, which is the second part of the Shahada: "Muhammad is the Messenger of God." It’s meant to represent the seal of Prophet Muhammad.
The two Arabic phrases all work to evoke an image of the historical Islamic caliphate, the massive state that ISIS claims to have resurrected.
" they’re saying we’re going back to this earlier time."
What are they saying?
ISIS would have never existed under Saddam Hussein’s rule
Saddam’s former soldiers are fueling the rise of ISIS
Saddam Hussein is still alive -
Phone call between Iraq’s Member of Parliament and a man who claimed to be Saddam Hussein. The caller claimed that in 2006, it was Saddam’s ‘body double’ who was executed and not him.
Culture and History
"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace."
Though Saddam Hussein was an oppressive dictator, the standard of living was much higher, the society was functioning, women held professional jobs, people had homes, electricity and water.

Angelina Jolie in Iraq
"A Holy war undertaken by Muslims against unbelievers."
