Initially a terrorist group within the Al Qaeda organization, the
Islamic State of Iraq refused to obey orders from its previous
superiors and declared the Islamic State, the caliphate which
existed for over 1,300 years but which had ceased to exist in 1924
after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire at the end of World War I.
This declaration was possible because contrary to previous
terrorist organizations which attacked targets and dissolved into
the community, the Islamic State actually governs the territories
it controls. It has a radio and a TV station. It counts with a
prolific presence in the Internet, especially in social media. It
prints its own currency, manages its own postal system and runs its
schools, hospitals and police stations. It exploits resources,
taxes its populations and imposes its distorted interpretation of
Sharia law. It considers itself the pristine manifestation of Islam
and authorizes the killing of any non-Sunni Muslim as not-true
