Terrorism and War

The founder of domestic terrorist organization Antifa has admitted that George Soros helped turn them into terrorists "more dangerous than ISIS." Shayne Hunter, the founder of Antifa Australia, says he quit the radical far-left group after 4 years after he realised that "Soros was using us to start a civil war in every country in the world".

Turkey and Recep Tayyip Erdoğan are hardly just a nuisance that might splinter NATO. They can fragment European as well as American objectives for world peace. Turkey, as it has been in earlier years, is an existential danger to Europe, to Mideast and global peace. It has cleverly and deceptively shifted the balance of power in the Mideast. More...

Mikael Harpon had converted to Islam about a dozen years before the attack. But it was only during the previous four years he showed signs of radicalization. These signs included "approval of certain exactions committed in the name of this religion," changing his attire to Islamic clothing and refusing to shake hands anymore with women." But it was...

Always look for the country behind the curtain. Fighting Islamic terrorist groups like Al Qaeda or ISIS as if they were an isolated phenomenon is as pointless as insisting that every single Islamic terrorist is really a lone wolf. It ignores reality. Islamic terrorist groups can't be defeated without dealing with the states that sponsor them.

Al-Baghdadi encouraged his fighters to rape women. The woman would become Muslim if she was raped by at least 10 ISIS fighters. ISIS fighters said this was rule of al-Baghdadi. These women are the spoils of war.

Trump said of al-Baghdadi that the United States had "brought the world's number one terrorist leader to justice." Al-Baghdadi, according to Trump, fled his pursuers and finally blew himself up in a jihad suicide bombing. Said Trump: "He was a sick and depraved man, and now he's gone. He died like a dog, he died like a coward." He died...

Having millions of alienated, half-starved young boys on the streets provides the Islamists with a potentially limitless recruitment pool. Many already come half-indoctrinated, thanks to the hardline, Saudi-influenced religious dogmas peddled in the madrassas. And for others, a few hundred naira is often enough to win them over, especially if it...

The Bush and Obama administrations tried as stubbornly as fruitlessly to bring democracy to the authoritarian Arab world by supporting "political" Islamists, including the Muslim Brotherhood, despite its open condemnation of Western values and the Western way of life, rejection of the Western concept of human rights, and explicit calls to fight...
