Thank you ISIS! Thank you for candidly showing your true face to your believers in Iraq and elsewhere. Unfortunately your staunch followers, despite their ancestors' crystal clear warnings, have refused to know you as you are-for 14 centuries, as of 7th century constantly, with no letup. I admit: You are truly die-hard to the core; a phoenix or rather a Dracula. Humanity repeatedly cast you into hell, but you managed to re-emerge. You have no choice but to be extremely awful. Astronomical number of your followers has blinded you. They have no choice, because you behead any follower who stops following you, including children. Their allegiance is untrue!
In the past 14 century, you have had no match whatsoever except, the grandson of Gengizkhan the great who sent you to hell, in 1258. Of course, Gengizkhan destroyed half of the world, but he never claimed to be anything but Gengizkhan the warrior. He avoided any metaphysical link.
Surprisingly, your original war lords knew very well the exact social psychology of human beings. They were well familiar with the impacts of extreme fear; quote Jeff Wise: "One of the strangest side-effects of intense fear is time dilation, the apparent slowing-down of time. Quote Wiki: "Sufferers of panic attacks often …(suffer from) de-realization (feelings of unreality) or depersonalization (being detached from oneself)" . Let me add here the Stockholm syndrome-"… (it) is a psychological phenomenon in which hostages (or ISIS followers) express empathy and sympathy and have positive feelings toward their captors (ISIS), sometimes to the point of defending (or worshiping) and identifying with them." Wikipedia. Yes. Your followers worship the tomb of those warlords who beheaded their forefathers exactly like what you are doing now in Iraq -taking away young married or single females and under-puberty boys for sex.
If you fly, in a drone, over Arabian Peninsula and its captured lands you hear no sound of music except the war drums or battle cries of ISIS of the past and present. Outside of Arabian Peninsula you may hear some songs. Quote: 'Middle Eastern music is based on minor intervals (generating sad music)... Sad music evokes feeling of sadness by mimicking sighs and wails of mourning, quavering voices…' Put yourself in the shoes of Yezdi being hunted by ISIS and record their wails, sighs and quavering voices. Those who rejected are dead or will be dead. This has been the case for 1400 years. Who to blame, the hostages or the hunters?
However, you can see multitudes of non-Arab pilgrimages marching toward shrines of 1st ISIS in various centuries to get their blessing-blessing from ISIS fighters of each era who did exactly what present ISIS is doing in Iraq or neighboring countries
The tomb of Khalid ibn al-Walid who killed thousands of people in Syria is a shrine in Syria. He and his black-clad ISIS fighters of the time leveled to the ground the rich civilization of the area. ISIS can only survive in foul smelling ditches, soaked in human blood.
Isn't it preposterous to learn that these Bedouin Arabs knew and still know political science much better than Machiavelli? They have come up with a form of combined government consisting of Phobio-klepto-kakisto-theocracy? Phobiocracy is based on extreme fear; Kleptocracy, (Mafia state); Kakistocracy, where the worst or least-qualified citizens govern or dictate policies. The cement of all these well known forms of government is Theocracy.
Save the world, o ye Hulagu Khan, the grandson of Gengizkhan the Mongol
