Waging a war of conquest, the Islamic State (IS), formerly known as the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (al Sham), or ISIS, is erasing the borders that the Sykes-Picot Accord established in 1916.

It is bigger than the United Kingdom or Texas and, since the end of June 2014, is known as the Islamic Caliphate.
