The ISIS 19-ton truck to Paradise

The ISIS 19-ton truck to Paradise

You’ve pored over the New York Times, Washington Post, Guardian, and Der Spiegel online, now dip into the monthly ISIS publication on the dark web. 

What do you get when you stir Cosmopolitan, GQ, You, Joy Magazine and Popular Mechanics into a boiling vat of blood? Rumiyah, the monthly magazine put out by the Islamic State, also known as ISIS. The publication title is aspirational: its named after Rome, a city on the target bucket list of many ISIS supporters. As new editions of Rumiyah appear, theyre dredged up from the deep web and posted by the Clarion Project, a non-profit organisation focused on revealing the activities of radical Islamists.

Like its predecessor publication Dabiq, Rumiyah isnt just an appalling read that leaves you feeling sullied and scared. Its also enlightening.

You get straight-talk from the mujahideen, or at least from their marketing people. The central message is unequivocal – as one article sassily puts it, “The Kafir’s blood is Halal for you, so shed it”.
