In Old Kingdom (Egypt), ISIS was worshiped as goddess of fertility, nature, and motherhood. She was said to have married her brother OSIRIS and given birth to son HORUS. She was also responsible for Osiris’s resurrection after his death at the hands of the God Seth. In this respect she is also seen as protector of the dead. And so now, we have ISIS RISING, a new incarnation of Isis, and a fortified resurrection of her sibling-consort, Al-Qaeda in Iraq. Is it not amazing how the American security-warrior State can itself, like the goddess Isis, give birth (or rebirth) over and again to dieties of mythic proportions?
It is interesting, is it not, that the self-proclaimed US hegemon can casually send armed forces ready to rumble into the Gulf to “protect American property and lives” against this newly emergent “terrorist” threat, without so much as a self-reflexive thought as to how he threatened Putin for doing precisely the same thing in Ukraine when Russian geopolitical necessity called for it. And mind you, Putin acted in direct response to an American-financed and managed putsch; his assistance having been directly solicited by the government and people of Crimea as well as the ‘republics’ in the southeastern regions of that small country. I should think that Putin (together with the EU) may want to impose some stiff sanctions on Barry for interfering in another countries internal affairs.
So, now the Islamists are once again on the move, with bigger and better plans for Iraq, Iran, Syria and Jordan, continuing to take plays right from our secret playbook.
They are religious imperialists, and their fierce ideology teaches them that they must expand or die; if they consolidate control over their existing territories, they will soon turn elsewhere. The ethnically and politically fractured kingdom of Jordan is an obvious candidate for their malevolent attention*.
Isn’t it marvelous how these religious imperialists have learned their lessons well from the ‘democracy-spreading’ hegemon. Like good little children they are not doing as we say, but instead doing as we do! It is not surprising, for we have shown nothing but disregard for national borders or ethnic diversity in our own imperialist endeavors to make everyone act like and subservient to the American nightmare.
So watch this new ISIS as she plows forward onto more fertile fields, resurrecting the long forgotten ghost of her sibling-consort Osiris, making the world a better place to spread another version of this current and rampant virulent disease, just as we have taught her by spreading our own brand of it ourselves!!
