THE RISE OF ISIS (Reaction Paper)
I. Introduction Islamic State of Iraq and Syria commonly known as ISIS is a Sunni jihadist group with a predominantly violent ideology that calls itself a caliphate and claims religious authority over all Muslims. It was inspired by al Qaida but later publicly expelled from it. Terrorism experts have been continuously analyzing the capabilities of this terrorist group in different areas and found out that their influence and their sources of finance and organization is particularly from their financing, management, and organization; their knowledge in using social media for recruitment and fundraising; and the instability that spawned the group as a regional problem in the Middle East. This group has been sending signals and threats to different parts of Asia and even in the United States as the primary dealer and supporter of Firearms in Iraq.

Their impact has been resulting to a widespread fear that is felt in the whole land of Asia. II. Summary The story of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) started even before Prime Minister Nouri al Maliki flew to Washington to mark the occasion.
