Rabat - When it comes to ISIS, the fatal mistake many make is trying to find reason or explanation of its violence or even consistency in its actions. There is no sense to be made of their thoughts, logic, culture, morals, values, feelings, emotions, or the human perspective. Out of their framework of reference, they have created their history as latent violence, destruction, and revenge upon civilization, along with denial, illusions, and rejection of normal society.
