‘We are in your home’: the Islamic State’s propaganda machine is still alive

A man wearing an ISIS face scarf has uploaded a chilling selfie outside New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art with the caption: ‘We are in your home.’

“Such is the typical fare served up by the Islamic State’s propaganda machine, which remains very much alive three months after the fall of the terrorist organization’s capital in Raqqa, Syria. The self-proclaimed caliphate has been reduced to a handful of villages in the Syrian desert, but the “virtual caliphate” fights on, a diminished but still formidable presence focused on rallying the group’s followers in the face of crushing military defeats, according to U.S. officials and independent analysts,” the WSJ comments.
