Salaam! I was wondering if you could paint a whole picture for me of what's going on with the ISIS. As far as I know, they're a a bunch of crazy extremists who are tainting the name of our religion by killing innocent Shias and Christians by the masses. But can you help me understand the background of everything? Tumblr has helped me learn a lot about the situation in Gaza (without having to rely on bias media sources) and so I'd like to learn more about this too. Links would be appreciated(:
