the Vice video series on ISIS was interesting. they got one of their insane reporters to actually be embedded with them. What struck me was the resignation of the people in the town in Syria that ISIS had taken over. The ISIS morality squad calls over some guy on the street and tells him his wifes veil is the wrong fabric and not to lift her dress when she walks and the guy just takes it. really? you're gonna let some guy you don't know emasculate you like that? Amazing that people would step all over other people and be stepped all over in the name of religion.
Also, most of the Muslims I know or have known have been Shia. They hate wahabi's like ISIS which makes sense because they have been persecuted by them for millenia.
I watched that too. I think what I found most surprising is the way these guys can go and decapitate people and leave their severed heads propped up on top of their dead bodies, and then in the evening they're in town having a little county fair type thing, showing off their tallest and shortest soldiers to the villagers; isn't this fun? What a bunch of wonderful guys we are - don't you want to be one of us too? Or the way that one guy was asking his son if he was going to be a jihadist or a martyr, with the same happy enthusiasm as an American dad would ask his kid if he was going to be a fireman or an astronaut.
