The infighting between AQ and the "Islamic State' is going to be interesting.

Are you asking a serious question with the topic question, or just trolling Muslims like the good Christian you are?

Actually it's a serious question. I predict (dangerous but I do) that the new Caliphate will grow in power, size and stature amongst muslims. As they are demanding that Muslims swear allegiance or suffer a punishment similar to that for Apostasy, this may be an interesting issue for any moderate muslim in the future.

It's going to be the issue that brings Israel and the Arab world together to fight this menace in the middle east. I don't see the moderate populations of Malaysia and Indonesia supporting this, and I hope to governments of each clamp down on the extremists who do.

ISIS seem to be even more radical than Al-Queda to the extent that the latter is considering disassociating itself with it.

You know things are bad when THE Al Qaeda is telling the group "Whoa there. I think you're going overboard. Not cool, man."

certain Syrian videos are blood curling, and especially if you google pictures of Aleppo, scenes of massive world war like destruction, life will never ever be the same again in these places.
