Furthermore it will be discussed to what extent said conceptions of occidentalism are used in Dabiq and to what extent they are used to legitimize their terror in the West. It will be concluded that the recruitment magazine of the Islamic State produces conceptions of occidentialism to various extents from all analytical dimensions.
