In 2013, ISI absorbed the Al-Nusra Front which was an Al Qaeda backed militant group in Syria. Al-Baghdadi named the group ISIS. Al-Nusra Front’ s leader and Al Qaeda however later renounced the ties after months of infighting. The group then started taking control of cities starting with Mosul and Tikrit freeing prisoners and radicalizing young people. The group is both politically charged and still rules through Islam fanaticism. The group plans on starting an Islamic state where Sharia laws will be followed to book. They insist on separate schools for girls and boys or basically separating them during schooling.
Women must also wear a full veil or niqab in public. Music will also be banned and the fast will be lawfully enforced during Ramadan. The Sharia laws will cover both religious and non-religious aspects of the citizen’ s lives. Their propaganda is so attractive because it promises to deliver a Pure Mohammadan Islam state once the caliphate has defeated the infidel enemies. That is how they are able to recruit new well-educated Muslims from Europe and America adding another promise of a first truly Islamic university in history (Charles River Editors, 2014, 45). Though they have wrapped up their narrative in the familiar language of the other extremist's groups, jihad, and fighting on the grounds of Allah, ISIS ideology amounts to destroying anyone or anything that disagrees with them.
It is just a reincarnated Al Qaeda with a different name and a different way of approaching the taking over of the Middle East. Its ideology, which seeks to overturn the status quo and expand constantly, seems susceptible of living beyond the elimination of the primary advocates.
ISIS seems to be following the ideologies of Wahhabism and Qutbism but in the violence of all forms of evil subordinating the good. They believe that the Muslims have been corrupted and seduced by the West deviating them from true Islam and therefore need liberation (ʻInāyat, 2005, 35).
