Rebel Media: Dr. Tony Costa on Dabiq's importance in ISIS mythology



(March 26th, 2015)

Marissa Semkiw of TheRebel.media talks to Dr. Tony Costa about Dabiq.

A professor of world religions, he explains that this otherwise unremarkable town plays a key roll in ISIS's end-times beliefs. It is considered the final battleground of Islam, similar to Armageddon in Christianity.

That's why, for example, the name of the ISIS propaganda magazine is "Dabiq."
