REASON BEHIND PARIS
.France is taking more part
in Africa to fight against JIHAD .
France’s Mali Anti-Jihad
France is the more
interventionist from the western power .
Syria being a Sunni majority country is ruled by a Shia
President Bashar al Assad since 2000 and even before him Syria was ruled by his
father Hafez al-Assad from 1971 onwards. • The civil war started in 2011 and
this gave Turkey an opportunity by which it allowed a southern border with
Syria so porous that it offered ISIS and the al-Qaeda-affiliated Jabhat
al-Nusra what amounted to a logistical safe zone • In March 2013, it took over
the Syrian city of Raqqa – the first provincial capital to fall under rebel
control. • Iran backed Hezbollah are pro Assad • The Russia is continuing its
air strike on ISIS in North-eastern Syria • The Saudi and Qatar govt. are
funding Sunni militias to fight against Assad. Even U.S.A is calling for the
resignation of Assad rather than regime change, because it has seen the failure
of it in Iraq. • US-backed Syrian rebels have also begun advancing on IS
stronghold, the city of Raqqa, in northern Syria.
• IS grew out of
what was AQI, which was formed by Sunni militants after the US-led invasion in
2003 and became a major force in the country’s sectarian war.
• Since Shia Arabs
are majority (60-65%), Sunnis are 32-37%.
• Paul Bremer idea
of De-Baathification and the disbanding of Iraqi army gave ISIS new leaders to
fight in their Jihad. As all these were the associates of Saddam Hussein. •
More than half of the leadership of ISIS was present in Camp bucca, Camp nama
and Camp cropper. Maj. Gen. Douglas Stone, prison commander in Iraq mentions
the camps as a Jihadi University.
• Iraqi special
forces and army units have liberated the eastern half of Mosul and are now
advancing into the western part of the city. • Brig Gen Yahya Rasool, a
military spokesman, said the extremist group currently controls less than
12,000 square miles (30,000sq. km) in Iraq, or 6.8 per cent of the country’s
They try to convince Muslims all around the world that West specially US
is at war with Islam. This has been the prominent reason which has helped in
the recruitment of Jihadis.
Methods used for
.The study of social media and internet searches ( covering Twitter,
Facebook, YouTube and Google ) and found that the people age of 16 to 30 years take more
interest in global terror outfi
.He is quicklydiffusing in the social media with a message to Kill all
Hindus in India.
• According to the U.S. State Department, 68 player in the organization
playing there role to contributing either military forces or resources.
• the Fighting strength has reduced to an estimate of
12,000 to 15,000 fighters in Iraq and Syria.
• In 2017 the organization has lost around 60% of the
populated territory held in Iraq, and around 30% of the populated territory
held in Syria.
• The oil and gas resource are being targeted which is
forcing ISIS to call for foreign donations.
The Future Goals:
They want to take control of
North Africa, most of the Indian Subcontinent, parts of Europe, middle East,
within the next five years ( 2020 ).They control over in Iraq and Syria with
approximated collection of 2.8 million to 5.3 million people
Foundation of new Islamic

the U.S and Russia and then bring in Iran and Saudi Arabia.
moderate opposition in Syria and end the civil war.
Islamic State’s weaknesses.
Iraqi national guard.
to play a bigger role.
UN need to
play a major role.
Themain goals are to establish a
caliphate, expand territory, and conquer other countries. The threats are to
kill westerners and Muslim cities and make them believe in their
theology. ISIS is being stopped and overall ISIS is still rising but it is
being slowed down dramatically. ISIS was created by Abu Ayyub al-Masri and
when he started ISIS his main goal(which is the same today) is to establish an
Islamic Caliphate. Overall, It is a very dangerous organization but if taken
care of properly, they can be stopped. I will prefer that inhuman activities should be banned
