ISIS puts governing structures to rule the territories it conquered

Leader of ISIS Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and  Osama bin Laden of a- Qaeda had many similar political and religious views : both were radically anti-Western and devoted to establishing independent Islamic states in Middle East  region. But ISIS — unlike al-Qaeda, which disowned ISIS  in early 2014 — has proven to be more brutal and more effective in controlling territory it has seized.

The rise of Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the Islamist militant group that has seized a chunk of land stretching from northern Syria to central Iraq, has struck fear into the hearts of leaders around the world. CNN explains ISIS’ roots, what it controls, and where its support comes from.

ISIS is putting governing structures in place to rule the territories the group conquers once the dust settles on the battlefield. From the cabinet and the governors to the financial and legislative bodies ISIS looks a lot like those of some of the Western countries whose values it rejects — if you take away the democracy and add in a council to consider who should be beheaded.
