This study is a content analysis of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS)’s French-language magazine Dar al-Islam. The first seven issues of the magazine are quantitatively examined and broken down into the number of articles, images, and terms used as a means of deter- mining how ISIS targets French-speaking individuals. This study find that ISIS focuses on religious terminology and justifications to ration- alize its existence and its fight. Also, despite being a French-lan- guage magazine, a majority of the focus is on Middle Eastern groups, not Western groups. Overall, the magazine is similar, but not a carbon copy to ISIS’s English-language magazine, Dabiq.
