Abstract

Should last month's Paris attacks summon a Western invasion to crush the Islamic State?

Unfortunately, yes.

The goal of the Islamic State is to establish a global caliphate (religious state) with its capital being in Jerusalem and satellite offices in Washington, Rome, Tehran and Paris. The Islamic State sees itself as the reincarnation of Muhammad and his caliphate; however, its objective is to ultimately surpass what Muhammad and his first generation of followers did and obtain world domination. To do this, it is the Islamic State's religious obligation to work toward our eradication.
