Of Masters and Their Slaves

"It only stands to reason that where there's sacrifice, there's someone collecting the sacrificial offerings. Where there's service, there is someone being served. The man who speaks to you of sacrifice is speaking of slaves and masters, and intends to be the master." ―Ayn Rand

The ISIS Iceberg

On the surface, the support for the terror entity known as Daesh (a.k.a., 'Islamic State,' ISIS, ISIL) is limited. In reality, the Daesh militants currently present in Iraq and Syria constitute only the tip of the iceberg. Daesh has a much larger pool of potential supporters and terror recruits present throughout the vast -- and overwhelmingly Sunni -- Islamic World.

The ISIS Iceberg
Many experts agree too.

For instance, in an article entitled Revealed: Saudi Arabia's Plan to Transform the Middle East, terrorism expert Fahad Nazer (Twitter: @fanazer) pointed out, "And while the Saudi and United States are both committed to destroying ISIS, the Saudis have made it clear that as long as Bashar al Assad remains in power, and his regime continues to slaughter Syrian Sunnis, ISIS will be able to replenish its ranks with Sunni militants."

Indeed, the current geopolitical conditions and sectarian strife only guarantee the continuous growth of the support base of Daesh among frustrated Sunni Muslims.
