Meeting ISIS

Go onto the front lines with the Takfiri terrorists known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL/ ISIS) with never before seen footage and imbedded perspective. Whoever has dared question them or raise the voice of dissent has been persecuted under their distorted version of Islamic law, and anyone who is not with them is the enemy and is branded an infidel and a target.

BIGSTAR Review

“Meeting ISIS” is quite simply, a war documentary. Trying to understand and get intimate information from this radical group, is a feat in itself. To that end, I give this short documentary a great deal of credit. I also can honestly say, that I am one to appreciate “rare” and “unseen” footage. Yet I must share here that I found this particular documentary a bit dry. The narration although informative, left a bit to be desired for me, perhaps the questions that they are asking the ISIS soldiers are posed tentatively because of the high tension that surrounds such a radical group. The group known variously as ISIL (Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant), ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) originally, an offshoot of Al-Qaeda in Iraq. What distinguishes the new armed group is its capture ad occupation of swaths of territory. Although the group has beheaded countless local captives, the grisly videotaped execution of American journalist Foley and Sotloff have attracted global attention. The scariest aspect to this group is that the CIA has estimated that more than 30,000 fighters now make up this group with 2,000 soldiers holding Western passports. I found that in this documentary I yearned for more information, yet was able to take away some new facts.
