    Thanks. The story was difficult to read. The inhumanity of ISIS is unfathomable.

    Inhumanity. A scary term to hang on a religion.

    Not a religion--in any way.
    A cult of personality.
    Primitive in the extreme.

    A cult of misogyny--what more do you need to know?

    There is a folk saying that a coward lives to fight another day. I am not advocating for cowardice, I personally was never one and will never be but pragmatism wins any day. Had she opposed ISIS discreetly, she could have achieved much more, even playing a role in Syria's transition. Dodging bullets to cock your gun is the strategy. I admire Ruqia's brave soul but not her sense of judgement.
