What ISIS Really Wants

The following article was written by Graeme Wood and was published in The Atlantic.  Admittedly, tit is a lengthy article.  However, it is necessary that this be a lengthy article as we are not dealing with a simple issue that is easily understood — especially for those of us raised in the West.  Still, for anyone seeking to understand what ISIS/ISIL wants, this article is a ‘must read.’ Not only does it explain the goals of ISIS/ISIL, but it also explains how their goals tie in to Islamic end times prophecy.  What’s more, and to The Atlantic’s credit, this story is amazingly accurate.  It presents a factual and stunningly honest assessment of Islam.  Finally, if you are a believer of the Judaeo/Christian faith, this article will also help you see and understand the connection between Islam and the end-times prophecies of the Bible.
