Do you think it is worth the risk of execution to use hidden cameras to film life in Raqqa under ISIS?

  • Defining ISIS will turn the tide against terrorism.

    Firstly, it seems to me that we are struggling to find a very effective way of combatting ISIS. The more intelligence we can gather from the inside on how they operate and how to hit them so that they hurt.

    Secondly, the Western world runs the risk of the terror threat caused by ISIS destabilising the political systems (as has already started happening) and causing a political lurch to the far right or left. It is important that the public is educated about what ISIS really is and who ISIS really are so that we can stop the spread of fear mongering and reactionary violence.

  • Defining ISIS is our best bet at turning the tide against terror.

  • Defining ISIS will turn the tide.

    Firstly there is so much here-say and rumour when it comes to ISIS. The more intelligence we have on this threat the more effectively we can combat it.
    Secondly, as can be seen in America as well as in Europe, ISIS and the terror threat it poses is bringing out the ugly side of people back at home. The political extremes are fueled by a lack of information and clarity on these issues. In order that the Western world doesn't fall into another period of unrest and disorder, we need to get a handle on who and what ISIS really are and stop our political systems swinging to the far right or left.

  • It is worth the risk

    If someone is willing to wear a hidden camera, it is absolutely worth the risk to film life in Raqqa under ISIS. Most people hear about what happens, but do not fully understand. One view of footage from a hidden camera could bring about a great deal of action making the risk of wearing one totally worth it.

  • No it just is too big a gamble

    ISIS would consider itself hitting the jackpot if they were able to nab an American reporter. We would then have to put other lives in danger to save that reporter and crew. Our military is overtaxed with that task as it is. I'll be the first to say the story is necessary and important but the risk is just too huge.

  • People shouldn't take unnecessary risks

    Everyone knows that life under the ISIS is terrible, no matter what ISIS says. There is no need for anyone to film that life especially if it puts their life in danger. Why take risks to prove something that everyone knows to be true? If people want to fight ISIS, there are better ways to do so.

  • It is not worth the risk of execution for Americans to film life in Raqqa under ISIS

    People of the area might have some success in filming Raqqa under ISIS rule, and making it out alive. They know the ins and outs. Recently, a Syrian woman, dressed in a niqab with a hidden camera, filmed part of a typical day in Raqqa, and she later posted the video on youtube. She didn't think she'd survive. She took a big risk in doing so. The area is constantly being filmed by the media because of the war. It is only a matter of time before someone from the West captures footage of the area as people go about their day, if videographers haven't already.. The Syrian woman is an exception. A person filming Raqqa must be inconspicuous, and find the right moment to film when militants are not looking, and when regular people are going about their day. ISIS would not hesitate to punish those who break the rules.
