Suez Canal Expansion Celebrated with Statue of ISIS

8 posts in this topic

You just cant make this stuff up!

I know Isis is a Egyptian Goddess, but don't you think Egypt could have come up with some other Goddess statue to use for the celebration? How about Ma'at or Nut instead of Isis. But nooooo...lets have a huge statue of Isis because no one will make the terror organization connection.

Egypt's Sisi opens New Suez Canal, says to defeat terrorists

Thursday was declared a public holiday. Cairo and other cities were decked out in bunting, with fairy lights hung from the Nile river bridges and banners proclaiming "From the mother of the world (Egypt) to the whole world".

Tents for the festivities in Ismailia were erected on the east bank of the canal. A giant statue of a toiling canal worker with shovel in hand looked over the waterway. A towering statue of the ancient Egyptian Pharaonic goddess Isis with wings splayed looked out over the new channel, with the flags of the world flying behind it. Nationalist songs by military brass blared.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was in Cairo on Aug. 2 for a strategic dialogue with Egypt, but no top-level representative of the Obama administration attended the ceremony. Ambassador Robert Beecroft and Darrell Issa, a Republican U.S. Representative from California, attended.

There's a $100,000 nine foot tall statue of Baphomet in Detroit right now that will most likely be rejected by Arkansas so they could have shipped that ugly thing to the Suez. That thing is way creepier than Isis and would really scare the terrorists away!
