The goal of Islamic State is something I actually really respect - they want a return to Islam's glory days when the Islamic empire reached from Morocco to Pakistan. Which sounds great! Pan-islamic orgs have been suggested and encouraged for decades now, but OPEC is the closest anyone has come and it's not really an Arabic/Islamic thing. Their actions and methods of setting up this state, however, are totally disgusting. It's like if Americans championed the cause of Christianity by nuking Canada and Mexico. It's basically true evil. They've committed thousands of crimes against humanity. We have to stop them.

I do respect them for their brilliant modern version of the holy war, though. Say what you will, but these people are not uneducated religious savages, they're media-savvy propagandists who have indoctrinated a scary amount of people into their cult.
