ISIS Propaganda is Viewed More in the United States than Almost Any Other Nation on Earth

A study by the Policy Exchange, a London-based think tank, revealed a list of the countries whose residents click on the most propaganda content from the Islamic State. Read the full study here.

The list

  1. Turkey
  2. United States
  3. Saudi Arabia
  4. Iraq
  5. United Kingdom

Other findings

  • 40 percent of clicks on Islamic State content were referred through Twitter.
  • ISIS is producing more content than ever, including thousands of videos
  • Media production has not been hindered by the death of key Islamic State leaders
  • The content is often theologically based, portraying jihadists as the only true Muslims
