    Thousands of foreigners answered ISIS’s call to fight in Syria and Iraq, traveling from countries around the world...including the United States. VICE News follows the journey of an American father searching for his missing children in the hands of ISIS. The search reveals that while the physical Islamic State caliphate is gone, the ideology that attracted so many still lives on.

To all the people who think isis is Muslims go do your research please. ISIs is a terrorist organization that does not fear god or anything. They have their own religion which is not Islam no one actually knows what it is. Because in the Muslim religion and in the Quran in no where does it say it’s ok to shed a human blood under no circumstance.

George Carlin sad ""More people have been killed in the name of God than for any other reason. All you have to do is look at Northern Ireland, the Middle East, Kashmir, the Inquisition, the Crusades, and the World Trade Center to see how seriously the religious folk take "Thou shalt not kill". The more devout they are, the more they see murder as being negotiable."" I agree with him, religions are disease of the world.
