Middle East Tragedy: Channeling Basketball Commentator Johnny Most

In a recent article published online withThe Huffington Post, Dr. Elizabeth Prodromou suggests that basketball experts could teach us a thing or two about the endgame of the jihadi group, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS), whose forces have been closing in on Baghdad for some time now.  In the words of the late Celtics announcer, Johnny Most, ISIS has been patiently waging a deadly war, fiddling and diddling between Damascus, the historical seat of the Ummayad caliphate, and now, Baghdad, where the Abbasid Dynasty ruled over a caliphate for half a millennium. The future for Christians, other small religious communities, and Muslims who refuse to live in a sharia state, looks bleak.
