In many countries and regions, where the majority of the population is Arab, they hear in their weekly sermon on Friday from Islamic religious authorities that the western world is bad, they are evil, they are similar as Satan and they need to be killed. The same happens on Arab TV, where a constant stream of hate and distrust are coming from the religious and government authorities. The Arab media is reporting events in the world with a certain bias, and even blatant lies and untruth and they do this already for years.
It is extremely unlikely that the ISIS can be destroyed by only opposing it by air force only. It is unlikely that the ISIS will be contained by air force only. There is a stream of people, who want to join the ISIS, from all over the world. The ISIS, a Sunni Muslim group, has large support in Iraq. It’s governing a territory with the size like Great Britain, and administers about 8 million people, mainly Sunni Muslims.
In Iraq, ISIS means the answer of the Iraqi State support oppression from the Shi’ites. For the Muslim world, the Islamic State means the expansion of Islam and the successful Sunni Muslim battle against the Shi’ite Muslims, and the failing campaigns of the American led international coalition against ISIS.
