Summary/Abstract: CEAS intern Savely Zakharenko, a 2nd year college student from Duke University in the United States, has written about the Islamic State (ISIS), a newly formed and powerful insurgency currently sweeping through wide expanses of territory throughout Iraq and Syria. Though still a new, unpredictable power, the extremist Sunni insurgency, now a declared Caliphate, has significantly worried the West, especially the United States, who had just recently finished their military withdrawal from Iraq, and leaders throughout the Middle East.
