The Article published in the Magazine Dabiq, claims that the ISIS has transformed itself into a most explosive Islamic group in the World. It went on to say that, it is evolving into the most explosive Islamic movement the modern world has ever seen.
Photo journalist Cantlie is regularly used in the terror group’s propaganda and has appeared in a number of videos, including a YouTube series called “Lend Me Your Ears”. He has been held a hostage by ISIS for more than two years.
The Article further stated, that the ISIS is gradually transforming into a global movement citing the example of militant Islamist groups such as Bokoharam pledging allegiance to ISIS. “Let me throw a hypothetical operation onto the table,” the article continues. “The Islamic State has billions of dollars in the bank, so they call on their wilayah in Pakistan to purchase a nuclear device through weapons dealers with links to corrupt officials in the region.”
At present the Islamic group may be handling anything around $2 billions. it could be more or less. However, it doesnot have the capability to purchase a Nuclear weapon as of now, according to The Times of India
A recent call to arms from its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi also appeared to suggest it may be overstretched in some areas, with his speech urging supporters from across the world to travel to its territories in the Middle East.
