Best Thing to Read About ISIS/Daesh

Best Thing to Read About ISIS/Daesh February 19, 2015

In The Atlantic is a great piece by Graham Ward on What ISIS Really Wants, which I think is compulsory reading for anyone interested in the conflict.

We have misunderstood the nature of the Islamic State in at least two ways. First, we tend to see jihadism as monolithic, and to apply the logic of al‑Qaeda to an organization that has decisively eclipsed it … We are misled in a second way, by a well-intentioned but dishonest campaign to deny the Islamic State’s medieval religious nature.

A well-researched and non-ideological driven summary of the ISIS/Daesh crisis.
