This is a very well-made film that is well worth the watch. It is an unprecedented and astonishing look inside the Islamic State.
The Islamic State
Islamic State Press Officer: “I say to America, that the Islamic Caliphate has been established. And we will not stop. Don’t be cowards and attack us with drones. Instead send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq. We will humiliate them everywhere, God (as in Allah) willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House.”
President Obama and John Kerry: Come on in! Despite what you actually believe and what we actually see you doing, we know you’re peaceful. Islam is a peaceful religion.
Did you notice these characteristics of Caliphate culture?
Does not respect women or their desires as God created them:
“He will show no regard for the gods of his fathers or for the desire of women, nor will he show regard for any other god; for he will magnify himself above them all. [Daniel 11:37 NASB]
No one can buy or sell without the mark on hand or forehead/pledging allegiance in thought and deed to the Islamic Caliphate:
and he provides that no one will be able to buy or to sell, except the one who has the mark, either the name of the beast or the number of his name. [Revelation 13:17 NASB]
Those killed displayed publicly while people rejoice:
And their dead bodies will lie in the street of the great city which mystically is called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified. Those from the peoples and tribes and tongues and nations will look at their dead bodies for three and a half days, and will not permit their dead bodies to be laid in a tomb. And those who dwell on the earth will rejoice over them and celebrate; and they will send gifts to one another, because these two prophets tormented those who dwell on the earth. [Revelation 11:8-10 NASB]
Allegiance to the Caliphate or death… beheading:
And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the beast, so that the image of the beast would even speak and cause as many as do not worship the image of the beast to be killed. [Revelation 13:15 NASB]
Then I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was given to them. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God, and those who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand; and they came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. [Revelation 20:4 NASB]
They kill thinking they are doing service to God:
“They will make you outcasts from the synagogue, but an hour is coming for everyone who kills you to think that he is offering service to God. [John 16:2 NASB]
