for the city itself. The final goal is to keep the momentum going and everyone going in the same direction to take control of ISIS. (Schmitt & Cooper, 2016) ISIS has been argued about since the day they revealed themselves. These are some of the more common arguments that are currently spreading across the world. The first major argument is whether ISIS is Islamic or not. There are many views on this. Some believe they are linked to Islamic religion while others believe there is no possible way they are connected to the Islamic religion. Some people even agree that ISIS has a mandate from heaven as their cause. The second major argument is how big Islam has

There is evidence that they have spread beyond their own area and are developing into other countries, but exactly how big they currently are is difficult to determine because people are joining every day. The last argument that has had much discussion is what the best route is for defeating ISIS. There are many views on this out there, but America’s plan is a 3-step plan to continue an air strike on the city, isolate the city, and finally attack for the city itself. There are a variety of views and arguments about ISIS, but one thing that we do know is that it is becoming very powerful.
