A detailed look at the Islamic State propaganda machine

BBC News - Fishing and ultraviolence

Interesting to read how the IS propaganda machine actually spends a lot of time on positive PR spin about the its economic and social future.   "Look! - a man growing melons.  Look! - a camel herder!  Look! - a homosexual being thrown off a building and the crowd below stoning his body."

[Apparently, the medieval period has a lot of allure to a certain subset of the population.   It's a bit like those who enjoy medieval dress up fairs - hey, I've been to one or two - but with the violence real.]
