There was a time when Isis was a goddess of health, marriage and love from the polytheistic pantheon of Egypt. Now the abbreviation composed of the same letters – ISIS – has become a synonym for death, violence and hatred. The disaster does not only threaten the stability of Iraq or the Middle East, but the whole international community. Much has already been said on the matter and much is going to be said as ISIS will hardly leave the top headlines of news agencies in the short-term or even in the mid-term perspective. The released ISIS video from the recently captured Taqba airbase in Syria is just another stroke on this vivid portrait.
