What Riled ISIS?

ISIS – or is have they been re-branded as ISIL now? – seemed to come out of nowhere like a freak squawl, with similar destructive potential. That begs the question – what riled ISIS up and enabled them to set out on the road of Islamist, genocidal mania?

The answer is sadly both easy and predictable. What riled up these ragheaded, goat-fucking, vermin was Obama’s foreign policy “decision” involving Syria and the MENA region in general.

I suppose we have to cut The First Black POTUS some slack though. ISIS’ original name was Jamāʻat al-Tawḥīd wa-al-Jihād – “The Organization of Monotheism and Jihad” – so Obama may have thought they were community organizers or even a humanitarian organization when he supported and armed them against Bashar al-Assad.
