HAVE YOU SEEN ANY ISLAMIC STATE PASSPORTS YET ?

Coming to a bank near you ?

It may not qualify as a sovereign state, but ISIS/ISIL a/k/a the Islamic State, is reportedly issuing passports to residents of the areas of Syria and Iraq that it occupies. One report notes that ISIS is using a  former Iraqi government printing facility in Mosul, and that it also intends to mint gold and silver coinage for its residents.

I am sure that you understand that the regulatory push back, should your new accounts staff actually accept one as primary identification, would be powerful.  You should circulate the image that appears above, with a warning, to insure that some newly-minted new accounts officer, who doesn't follow current events, will sound the alarm, should one be presented to him.
