Western scholars engaged in debate over the nature of ISIS (Was it a capable terrorist organization or a “JV league” or a “flash in the pan”) and their motivation (Was it a cynical power grab by ex-Baathists or an apocalyptic religious movement?). The debate raged among academics, pundits and policy makers while ISIS raged in Syria and Iraq, consolidated its hold on territory, inspired attacks around the world, and sold thousands of women and girls into sexual slavery. Western experts failed to appreciate what ISIS was and what it was capable of doing because each expert saw and heard what they thought ISIS was; experts failed to listen to what ISIS was saying and square that with what it was doing,… Event Title: Listening to ISIS.
