Type Of Lead-Summary Lead
WHO- ISIS is a Muslim terrorist group that has taken over 34,000 square miles of land in both Iraq and Syria. They have declared their land as a state and governing territory and several years and counting now. The group is now run by the leader that goes by the name of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
WHAT- Isis is a militia jihadist group that claims to have political, religious and military power over every single Muslim in the world. The acronym "ISIS" stands for "Islamic State Of Iraq And Syria."
WHEN- The ISIS group started in 1999 and is still alive and very active today. ISIS sends terrorist threats to places like London and America stating "we will burn your people."
WHY- ISIS kills everyone who isn't Muslim enough or part of another religion such as Christian, Jews or anyone that isn't a specific type of Muslim. They do this because they want to create a unified Muslim territory that enforces extremists beliefs.
WHERE- ISIS was created in al-Qaeda Iraq but has now expanded it's territory enormously. As of today ISIS control it's self proclaimed state that is located in 34,000 sq miles of Iraq and Syria.
HOW- ISIS is able to do all of this with their militia that all wants to accomplish the same thing. They can commit these crimes by doing illegal acts to achieve money such as kidnapping, success in oil fields, stealing tax money, selling stolen artifacts and selling crops.
Concluding Statement Of Author
"It is for these reasons, and many others, that the U.S. and other Western democracies must continue this important fight against ISIS — and ultimately defeat it."
My concluding statement
It is no question that ISIS needs to be defeated, but they will only get stronger, smarter and kill more innocent people if we don't band together and take them down, forever.
