ISIS powered by Pharmakeia

Descriptions of the behavior of ISIS fighters during attacks supports a belief that many of them take Captagon, a cheap drug that combines amphetamines with an asthma drug to produce a detached, emotionless state with elevated mental and physical performance. Remember, pharmakeia — the root word of pharmacy and pharmaceutical — is equated with sorcery and witchcraft in the Bible.
