So is ISIL (ISIS, Islamic State) Islamic or Not?
Incidentally, ISIL is probably the more accurate acronym to describe the terrorist army advancing across Syria and Iraq, setting up the new Islamic Khilafah (Islamic State, which I wrote about back in 2011). ISIL stands for the Islamic State in the Levant. The Levant is that region in the Middle East often referred to as the “Fertile Crescent”. This region extends from the rivers of Iraq through Syria, northern Jordan, Lebanon, and Israel. Yes, Israel…
Seems that ISIL is having trouble convincing President Obama that they actually do represent the fundamentals of Islam, as they raze the landscape of non-Muslims wherever they go, just as Muhammad did in the 7 Century. Jihadwatch.org published this graphic by Nicolai Sennels which puts it all in very simple terms. Judge for yourself – (H/T to Mr. Sennels and Jihad Watch)
Quran 48:29 Yusuf Ali: Muhammad is the messenger of Allah; and those who are with him are strong against Unbelievers, (but) compassionate amongst each other. Thou wilt see them bow and prostrate themselves (in prayer), seeking Grace from Allah and (His) Good Pleasure. On their faces are their marks, (being) the traces of their prostration. This is their similitude in the Taurat; and their similitude in the Gospel is: like a seed which sends forth its blade, then makes it strong; it then becomes thick, and it stands on its own stem, (filling) the sowers with wonder and delight. As a result, it fills the Unbelievers with rage at them. Allah has promised those among them who believe and do righteous deeds forgiveness, and a great Reward.

Brutal as the above verses may seem, it complies with the teachings of Islam in accordance with the Quran. Muslim, world wide can only see ISIL as a true representation of the ideals of Islam. Anyone who denies this are either telling lies (Taqiyya) or are totally ignorant of the teachings of the Quran. No one can deny that ISIL is in total compliance with the commands of Allah as stated in the Quran.
