Coming of age in the Trump era
Roger loves Donnie but don’t tell Sarah
Up is down and its run by a clown
Wait until you hear the news coming to town
Tracking down your mother, brother, sister, and father
For those that didn’t bother rather stutter
Frantic scatter as matters grow sour
Towers of the wall binding your mind in time
The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL, IPA ), also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria[note 1] (ISIS, ), Islamic State (IS), and by its Arabic language acronym Daesh (Arabic: داعش dāʿish, IPA: [ˈdaːʕɪʃ]), is a Salafi jihadist unrecognised state and militant group that follows a fundamentalist, Wahhabi doctrine of Sunni Islam. ISIL gained global notoriety in early 2014 when it drove Iraqi government forces out of key cities in its Western Iraq offensive, followed by its capture of Mosul and the Sinjar massacre.
This group has been designated a terrorist organisation by the United Nations and many individual countries. ISIL is widely known for its videos of beheadings of both soldiers and civilians, including journalists and aid workers, and its destruction of cultural heritage sites. The United Nations holds ISIL responsible for human rights abuses and war crimes, and Amnesty International has charged the group with ethnic cleansing on a “historic scale” in northern Iraq.
