Because Daesh has begun the destruction of Palmyra.
Because too many nations are standing back allowing them to destroy and desecrate.
Because they are human filth with no respect or piety even for the God they claim to worship.
Because they have committed countless atrocities on women, children, and the lands they enslave.
May the Gods of those lands, the Gods of their own ancestors turn Their attentions upon them. May their own ancestors repudiate them.
May the land itself rebuke them.
May abundance and success elude them.
May they suffer as they have caused others to suffer.
May the Gods afflict them.
May the Gods destroy them.
May the Gods call them to account for every deed.
May they be expunged in agony from our world.
I call upon Sekhmet, destroyer of nations.
I call upon Isis, whose name they defile.
I call upon Inanna, Who brings Her enemies to heel.
I call upon Set, God of the scorching desert.
I call upon Anat, Warrior of Her people.
I call upon Rashap, Lord of Weapons
I call upon Ba’al Hadad, Master of the Storm,
I call upon Pazuzu, bringer of plague.
I call upon all the Gods, named and unnamed here of the peoples they oppress: rise up and protect the lands that once venerated You. Even though the people there have turned their backs upon You, there are still those among us all who venerate Your names. Rise up and protect your thoughtless people. Save them from this plague of human filth. Cleanse and purify, oh Immortal Powers.
and may Your names be reverenced.
May temples once more resound with Your praises.
May the smoke of thousands upon thousands of offerings once more rise to the Heavens in praise of You.
So may it be.
