The organization abbreviated as ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) 
is not new in the region, nor is it a newfound expression of the crises 
afflicting Arab societies at a moment of profound transformations, 
initiated by 2011 revolutions.

To the contrary, ISIS is the offspring of more than one father, and the 
product of more than one longstanding and widespread sickness. The 
organization’s explosive growth today is in fact the result of 
previously existing, worsening conflicts that were caused by the 
different fathers.
