Abstract

Excerpt

Should last month's Paris attacks summon a Western invasion to crush ISIS?

Unfortunately, yes.

The goal of ISIS is to establish a global caliphate (religious state) with its capital being in Jerusalem and satellite offices in Washington, Rome, Tehran and Paris. ISIS 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 ISIS' religious obligation to work toward our eradication.
