I really do find this depressing, too. It's a small thing compared to the countless lives and entire civilizations these people have taken and disrupted, but it really does show the emptiness and nihilism of the extremist worldview.

ISIS seriously need to have something bad happen to them...

They just want power, it's not even about Islam anymore...

I don't think it ever was about Islam, or if it was, it was for a very small amount of time.

Agreed, Hukos. This kind of cultural nihilism is unfortunately found throughout history and has had religious, philosophical, and political roots, and is all ultimately just as meaningless in the end. Any sane person who has read the Quran understands that this is not the message of Islam.
