No-one I'm aware of has commented yet on the oddity of an Islamist group having the same name as the Egyptian Mother Goddess so I'm going to.|
I thought the same yesterday. Apparently it's an acronym and the US calls them ISAL, which for some reason reminds me of the name of a old brand of toilet paper (or was it toilet cleaner?), the exact name of which eludes me at present.
That's right. It was medicated toilet paper; my dad swore by it.
The funny thing is, we've heard about Al-Qaeda and Taliban and Boko Haram etc., but these guys seem, to us at least, to have sprung up from nowhere. Did nobody know they were there?
Their boss was a leader of the insurgency against Blair and Bush. Apparently he's a tactical genius.
I had no idea about them until about 2 days ago, and it seems they're about to take Baghdad.
I had thought maybe I'd just fallen behind on my reading.
I guess it depends on which language you're using to form the acronym.
As a former president once said, "it depends on what the meaning of 'is' is".
Politicians- don't you just love 'em!
I've thought of that, too, and I am annoyed... just as I am annoyed that there is a neo-Nazi political party in Greece named Golden Dawn.
