Just throwing it out there but I believe ISIS is outwardly funded by governments that wish to cause strife to justify political war. Psychological warfare has been going on for a while. If another country had resources you needed. And the leaders were costing you money it would be best to cause rivalry in the country. Infiltrate a religion and create a cult following would be pretty easy. But hey I guess we already know who pays who. So what is the fight over?
Beliefs, yeah right.

From all indications they have no need of any outside funding,
