ISIS ISIS, the militant jihadists terrorizing and overtaking city after city in Iraq, have made known their aspiration of installing a pan-Islamic caliphate or theocratic.

Indeed, the very name of ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham) speaks to their territorial ambitions of creating a caliphate over a wide swath of land in the Middle East. The word “Sham” means Levant; Levant today consists of the island of Cyprus, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, and part of southern Turkey.

Yesterday, June 29, 2014, ISIS announced that the Islamic caliphate is a reality, with ISIS chief Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi “the Caliph” and “leader for Muslims everywhere.” (Incredibly, the United States once had him in custody at a detention facility in Iraq, the now-closed Camp Bucca near Umm Qasr, but the Obama administration let him go in 2009.)

In other words, ISIS has now morphed into IS, the Islamic State.
