The Horrifying Rise of the “Death Cult” of ISIS – and Its Occult Roots

U.S. President Barack Obama has denounced the jihadist group known as “ISIS” as a “brutal, vicious death cult” that was involved in unspeakable acts of barbarism in the name of religion.


The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant is a violent political group that controls territory in Iraq and Syria and also operates in eastern Libya, the Sinai Peninsula of Egypt, and other areas of the Middle East, North Africa, South Asia, and Southeast Asia.

The group’s Arabic name is transliterated as ad-Dawlah al-Islāmīyah fī al-‘Irāq wash-Shām leading to the Arabic acronym Da‘ish or DAESH.  The name is also commonly translated as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria or Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham and abbreviated as “ISIS.”

ISIS has cruelly used beheadings and other vicious murders to inspire fear and alarm throughout the world.

Speaking at an annual prayer breakfast meeting in Washington, D.C., where the Dalai Lama was among the guests, the U.S. President said that recent violence in places such as Iraq, Paris and Pakistan had revealed how faith and religious could be twisted to be used as a weapon.

Similarly, U.K. Prime Minister Tony Abbott has intensified his own rhetoric about the threat posed by ISIS, describing the group as an “apocalyptic death cult” whose aim is “to have heads on stakes”.  Most recently, ISIS set fire to a captured Jordanian fighter pilot, and broadcast the horrific video of his execution.  The brutal footage has spurred the Kingdom of Jordan to join the fight with intensifying airstrikes against the group.

Interestingly, the connection between the “ISIS” group and the occult is deeper than it may at first seem.  During the Old Kingdom period of Ancient Egypt, the goddess known as Isis was represented as the wife or assistant to the deceased pharaoh. Thus she had a funerary association, her name appearing over eighty times in the pharaoh’s funereal texts.  This association with the pharaoh’s wife is consistent with the role of Isis as the spouse of Horus, the god associated with the pharaoh as his protector, and then later as the deification of the pharaoh himself.


Further, the “dark star” Sirius is uniquely associated with the goddess Isis.  The appearance of this “dog star” signified the advent of a new year and Isis was likewise considered the goddess of rebirth and reincarnation, and as a protector of the dead. The Egyptian Book of the Dead outlines a particular ritual that would protect the dead, enabling travel anywhere in the underworld, and most of the titles Isis holds signify her as the goddess of protection of the dead.


Several occult researchers have also claimed that the Great Pyramid of Giza was built in perfect alignment with the stars, especially Sirius.  The light from these stars were said to be used in ceremonies of Egyptian Mysteries.  It is from these very mystery schools that modern Freemasons and other secret societies take their rituals.
