It's reported that ISIS terrorists in Syria are putting small video cameras on all of the vehicles they use, in order to use the footage as propaganda. They're calling them Daesh-Cams.
It appears Isis is slowly becoming extinct, slowing being taken over by other forces, here here
Daesh-Cams - inspired!

ISIS is not becoming extinct. It is losing the last of its territory in Iraq but that could make it even more of a threat to us in the west.
Tens of thousands of well-trained ideologues will be looking for new targets. It will regroup and find a different way to establish the Caliphate.
Daesh members are persecuted in all territories they operate now. so they all qualify for Merkel's open border programme. they can then not be send back, because they face danger upon returning. An active German soldier faked to be an Arab refugee, speaking french, got admitted, started receiving allowance, if he can pass, Isis can. dont even have to start growing a beard, just hide your passport. pronto.
Come on Cofty you can be a little more optimistic than that, I agree though that new factions may spring up somewhere but the main frame of the organization ISIL is starting to crumble.
Maybe its history will deter an organization like this from starting up for awhile at least.
A person in their held territories can get beheaded for saying Daesh, no lie!
Im glad there were reports of their leader getting blown up. Betcha his Calphatness ain't goanna have the guts to show his mug in a propaganda video again!
ISIS was predicted to be created when Obama's leaving of the area left a large power vacuum. One author even predicted a nation-state would be created.
Even though the expansion of ISIS has been curbed I highly doubt we'll see its eradication anytime soon.
I wouldn't be optimistic. They may be being fought back in Syria and Iraq but they have a presence in a number of other countries around the world. The Philippines seems to be a new one. Also, as Cofty says, there will be a greater likelihood of terrorist attacks in the West.

No I really can't.

What about hizb ut-tahrir, boko haram, al qaeda, Al-Muhajiroun, and numerous other violent jihadi Salafist organisations we could mention?
The dream of a Caliphate has not gone away. Like any other cult they will revise the specifics of their eschatology and start again.
