I fail to see what this has to do with Islamic State specifically? That music sounds like the Egyptian equivalent of 'Turn Down for What' and there is no additional context.
The song at the beginning I've heard associated with other Isis videos. I think it's their "National Anthem" for all intensive purposes. But the other song you hear is that "EVERY EPIC ACTION MOVIE TRAILER SONG EVER" song, so I think it's just a really bad DJ. I could be wrong tho.
IZ - they're "nasheed", Islamic chants. The most famous ISIS nasheed is Dawlat al-Islam Qamat:
but ISIS uses a lot of different ones, and it can be difficult to tell them apart on account of all the dirka-speak and the lack of instrumentation.
Mothership - yeah, I'm not sure what's ISIS about this either. The only clue is the soundtrack, which is hardly proof of an ISIS connection (nasheeds are popular throughout the Islamic world) and was most likely added after the fact anyway.
BUT MUSLIMS! SCARY!
At the risk of being "that guy who cites Mother Jones", here is a Mother Jones article on the badass ISIS music scene:
I've always wanted to record an Islamic black metal album with nasheed-style vocals, and ISIS tunes are pretty hot right now, so maybe...?

Surprisingly not the most offensive wedding theme I've seen.
I too call bullshit: I've seen more than my fair share of tacky weddings, but none quite so offensive as this ( although mom's second marriage was pretty close ). Time to put up, JBF.
Jet Bin Fever
We've had our share of weird and terrible weddings on this site. I guess it's really a relative thing anyway. I found this somehow easier to watch than, for instance, that Juggalo wedding where they poured Faygo on each other, the furry one at the convention where the people got married in their fur suits and they exchanged leashes, and this great one: http://www.poetv.com/video.php?vid=97642.
I guess in retrospect, they're fine though, really. At least they aren't going to cut anyone's head off. I could've sworn there was a Nazi themed wedding somewhere around here too, but maybe I just saw that in a fever dream of mine.

I'm a little surprised that the bride's got her face uncovered. One would think a serious ISIS fan would demand a niqab or something.
The furnishings look tacky. I'm thinking that these guys are the white trash/fratboys of the Arab world.
I don't think they're ISIS "fans." For all we think about ISIS in North America, they aren't on our doorstep the way that Al Qaeda was. It didn't take long for South Park and other shows to start mocking them, because what else can you do?
>they aren't on our doorstep the way that Al Qaeda was.
... or ARE they?!
Yeah, that's the only way I can see this being real. It's a bunch of fratbros doing edgy humour jokes.
