The so-called Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (Daesh) or ISIS is more popular than what we might think. A poll on ISIS by Aljazeera Arabic shows that an overwhelming majority favour ISIS in the Middle East.
In a poll by Aljazeera Arabic between 23 May and 29 May 2015, over 81.1% voted in favour of ISIS, while only 11.9% voted against.
Aljazeera’s question was “Do you support the victories of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria?” Over 37,000 answered the poll, while more votes are still expected over the coming few days.
Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, known as Daesh in Arabic, proclaimed a Caliphate in mid 2014. Daesh is headed by Abu Bakr Al.Baghdadi and controls great parts of eastern Syria and north and central Iraq.
