In an effort to actually govern the area that it has nominally conquered, ISIS has begun to write and enforce regulations (besides death to non-believers) in its territories. Among them is a ban on fishing with explosives:
It is an Islamic principle to care for the environment, so that's one reason that using explosives to catch fish is banned.No mention of the penalty.
ISIS also has the buses running on a schedule, is issuing birth certificates and running a nationalized health care program:
"This is one thing that distinguishes ISIS from groups like the Taliban, which forbids vaccinations. Polio is a problem in Pakistan because the Taliban believes the vaccines are a forbidden substance. But ISIS is not that primitive," says Al-Tamimi.Among other notable regulations:
And a quote from the Quran saying property owners should lessen the burden on renters to earn spiritual rewards is used at the start of a document outlining a policy on rent control.Education for women permitted, up to age 15
Gaming legal, up to a point:
Foosball can be played, provided there is no gambling and the faces or heads are taken off the figurines to prevent idol worship. A fatwa on entertainment goes on to say that chess, billiards and other "contemporary games" do not benefit Muslims but may be played if they do not distract from religious obligations.Sounds a bit like the Democrats plans for America.
