BAGHDAD (Worthy News)– The Islamic State terrorist army's brutality and threats against America on Aug. 19 are signs it's focusing on entrenching its so-called Muslim caliphate — without interference, the Washington Times reported.
Analysts believe that Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has calculated that beheading American journalist James Foley for the world to see will work as a deterrent against the U.S. as he cements cruel Shariah law in captured cities and villages in Syria and Iraq.
"They don't want intervention at this time from the United States, and they're trying to deter that," said William Braniff, director of the Study of Terrorism and Responses to Terrorism (START) at the University of Maryland. "They have something else they want to focus on, and they don't want to be derailed. What that [means] is the Islamic State is building the institutions of the caliphate." — Source
