    First, ISIS is no more. Now they’re just IS (for Dawla Aslamia, or DA in Arabic).


    Next, they bear little or no semblance to the Caliphate they claim to be reviving, a Caliphte that, at its zenith, was the world leader in science and technology with Christians and Jews and Muslims studying together the ancient Greek texts on science and mathematics, taking the Greek achievements, and advancing them. Plus they built most of the international roads from about 650 – 900, a road-building frenzy that exceeded what the Romans did for Empire because it was required by Allah (so everyone could make the Hajj, even from the farthest reaches of Dar al Islam).


    By the 14th century, those who travelled through Dar al Islam saw impressive engineering constructions that no longer worked, one in particular was a huge alarm clock that had once made the requisite call to prayer accurately, but had completely stopped working (cf Travels of Ibn Battuta).

    In 1492 , Isabella the Catholic, Queen of Spain, forced the Jews and Arabs to convert or leave the country.

    Taking a side in a circle of hate, that’s tens of centuries old, is proof if idiot status.

    By the same standard we could speculate that, had President Obama not been so hot to check out of Iraq and not look back, we could have negotiated for a continuing troop presence and been a force for stability in the country’s development toward democracy while incidentally stopping a group that President Obama had dismissed as “the JV team” from taking over broad swathes of the country.
