    My rating was very similar to others because pictures invokes fear into people, and can be harmful because many people are afraid and terrified of ISIS. I saw this as harmful because it gives a portrait of who could take over our world and destroy all that we know.

    I think this was pretty harmful to the world, but could be beneficial for Isis. They want to people to be scared, and people probably are by this photo.

    i find this quite harmful because the picture gives no real background or insight on what is going on here. It doesn't explain the circumstances or really who these people are which is why it is dangerous to encourage people to jump to conclusions.

    While ISIS is not a joking matter, they pose no real threat to the United States. Fear mongering like this will lead to more war mongering.

    this propoganda is pretty harmful because Isis is a dangerous group and they are influencing kids and teaching them to kill and hurt others. The adds may make people think that Isis makes you strong and smart but it is tricking people into jointing or believing their words.

    This propaganda is harmful because it causes fear. Although it doesn't really have a clear message because it's just a photo of a bunch of masked guys carrying RPGs. And if you can't read Arabic, the caption on the bottom is irrelevant.

    Firstly, this ad has an arabic headline and very few words. But the picture is very clear and it implies that there is going to be war since it looks as if the terrorists are on a training. I got to know that they are terrorists because their faces are all covered and it kind of creates fear because they are all armed and it means that they are going to kill. And by looking at the arabic words, it means that they muslims and since it is arabic less people cannot know what they saying but by the interpretation of the picture it means that they are dangerous people. And I think the reason why they used arabic is their fellow people who understand arabic can know what they are communicating which is a safe way to protect their people but if you do not understand what they are communicating then you are in trouble and most likely to be killed which one of the signs to them that tells them that if dont speak arabic then you do not belong to safe group
