Beheadings of priests clearly show that they at least hate Christians just as much as their non-IS muslims.
No it doesn't. It shows Their level of violence is similar but it doesn't show the level of hatred is. You're oversimplifying a deep issue- the issue between "kafir" and the non. There is precedence here- in Algeria one of the Islamic groups (I can't remember if it was FIS or GIA) would slaughter whole Muslim villages because they didn't believe them to be "real" Muslims because they didn't support them. I would suggest you do more reading.

Who they hate more is irrelevant, supporting them should result in a 9-line or instant lead poisoning. We're not going to use their History Channel-esque top 10 list to separate their followers from the organization, so worrying about it is a waste of time.

Even failure is a success in terrorism.....it was good when ISIS was a combat fielded terrorism organization, easier to kill on the battlefield. But, as they lose in that arena, they will disperse, go underground and be the problem AQ was before the Syrian battleground....IMHO

The only reason ISIS is killing more Muslims than non-Muslims right now is because that's what's around them and that's what they have the capability to hit. They've proven themselves quite willing and eager to murder any Christians or Yazidis or any other religious group they roll up.

ISIS needs to take over the countries they're fight in, in order to use them as a base to attack the West. They need to secure the Near Enemy before they can get after the Far Enemy, which is the main target. So I don't think the author is entirely correct in stating "ISIS hates Christians less than it hates most non-ISIS Muslims."

ISIS hates anyone that isn't them!

And, the thugs that have infiltrated "ISIS" hates everyone that the base tells them to.

I equally hate them!

While I don't disagree their motivations are important to understand.

Of course CAIR is right there ready to defend terrorist. NYC terror suspect's family 'heartbroken' by attack

"We are heartbroken by this attack on our city today and by the allegations being made against a member of our family. Our family like all families is committed to the safety and wellbeing of all New Yorkers," the family said in a statement provided by the Council on American-Islamic Relations-New York.

That transition is underway as their territory shrinks and their infrastructure disappears. It's like Whack-A-Mole. They keep popping up with different names in different places and sometimes manage to establish a foothold until they're driven back into the shadows.
