“Talk to any Syrian you meet on the Syrian-Turkish border these days, and in less than five minutes the conversation is likely to turn to Da’ash—the Arabic acronym for the rebel organization known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria, or ISIS…he group beheaded three Alawites in the city’s central square, and established sharia courts and policing…Women have been told to cover up, smoking banned, and girls and boys segregated in school. Minorities have been hounded out of the city, and foreign journalists and aid workers are no longer welcome: dozens are currently in ISIS captivity…ISIS originated as an Iraq-based al-Qaeda affiliate, al-Qaeda in Iraq…ISIS’s vision is phenomenally popular with hardline jihadists and their supporters…Fundraising campaigns on Twitter…indicate that significant money is coming to ISIS from private donors in the Gulf…A large majority of foreign fighters who have entered Syria come through Turkey”
