ISIS is dangerous for many reasons, but what makes it such a force is that it holds to a much deeper religious ideology than its predecessor, Al Qaeda. ISIS believes it is fulfilling prophecy, and this can give any religious group a lot of affirmation to its cause.
There seems to be one little problem with their prophecy, however. It claims that prior to the end-times several things must happen, one being that a great war will happen involving Turkey. But, what seems to be rather ironic is how ISIS is actually fitting the description of their own prophecy’s antichrist, or at least to the extent of where he/it emerges. They claim he will emerge between Iraq and Syria and will be prohibited from entering Mecca or Medina. Oops.

It isn’t surprising why they seem to leave out this little detail.
