What a year of Islamic State terror looks like – Washington Post

The Islamic State has grown beyond its original home in Syria and Iraq, extending its operations into other parts of the Middle East and North Africa by establishing alliances and absorbing other terrorist groups. Data from IHS Jane’s Terrorism and Insurgency Center reveals how the group has claimed responsibility for carrying out attacks across the region. The map below reflects a year of Islamic State attacks following the capture of Mosul, one of Iraq’s most important cities. Since then, the militant group has carried out many attacks including a suicide bombing Abha, Saudi Arabia, a beheading in Egypt, and most recently, the attacks in Paris that killed more than 130 people.

    Europe has to control or even stop the free movement of people across borders
    otherwise it is dangerous receipe for far more terrorism, disasters and bloodshed on streets of Europe.
    The other major disaster would be Europe turning to far right racist parties coming to power and making lives
    very difficult for foreigners especially black Africans. Eritreans have to get rid the number 1 terrorist DIA sooner than later.

    The world deserve to know the truth about ISIS . From the start
    who was behind to give them material support to get at this level
    in short period . We know Al-Quaeda received millions of dollars
    from USA government when they were fighting Russia in Afghanistan
    and I wonder if the same scenario of foreign intervention also
    brought the mess we witness at this moment .
    Imagine , these group with twisted ideology showed barbaric acts
    that threatened the region and livelihood of every mankind but
    for some reason international world hesitated to react fast .
    Events in Paris is a wake-up call to recognize that TERRORISM
    doesn’t have boundaries . ISIS proved to strike not at local
    places only but capable at everywhere in the world .
    Facts that bewilders with questions about this group hard to find answers . I think the same old history repeats by itself .

    The double standard and hypocrisy of Western countries that supports terrorism and even organise it if it is for their interest while they fighting it when it turns on them is the main problem that innocent citizens in those countries paying its price. The lack of morality in the politics of Western countries is also another factor on the phenomenon of terrorism.

    The irony is while Europeans are complaining of the number of refugees entering Europe, they don’t hesitate to encourage their private companies to do business with the repressive regimes in Africa who are the underlining causes of young flight of refugees.
    The West is gaining more lucrative profits from the third worlds than they give back in terms of aid and giving sanctuary for refugees. The world has become interdependent but the problem remains the double standard of the Western politicians and world. All the troubles and miseries of the world is of their making.

    Terrorism grows and flourishes when hopeless and “miseducated” individuals and groups start to lose their own identity, languages, heritage and history. This people are led by mentally disturbed elites who define their own identity on alien cheap and borrowed values at the expense of their true values and identity.
    May the good angels protect Eritrea and the proud Horn African region from these identity starved copycats.
