Contrary to Heavy’s headline, this is not really a new map: it dates from at least last September. Is the Islamic State likely to reach its goals? No. Is it likely to murder a great many people while trying? Yes.
A new map purportedly released by the Islamic State shows Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East drawn-up to show the lands it plans dominate within five years. The map spans countries from Spain in the west to China in the east and includes the new names of the familiar lands if the terrorist state’s “caliphate” prevails….
Along with the map of a conquered Europe, an ISIS affiliated account also tweeted out the above image showing an outline of the United States filled with the black banner, the flag of Daesh.
