How to reduce terrorism

By Maj. Gen. (ret.) Yaakov Amidror.. The Islamic State group has struck again. In a matter of days, there were major terrorist attacks in Barcelona and stabbings in Siberia and Finland and a few other incidents that remain murky. The headlines are screaming and the analysts explain how little the Europeans know about fighting terrorism, and some even see these events as the beginning of the end of Europe. Another example of blowing things out of proportion.

“ISIS” is an anachronistic name. It is an acronym for “the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria,” but those aspects of the name have faded away or are about to. The “Islamic State” has ceased to exist. It no longer controls contiguous territory or civil systems. It is in the process of being wiped out across the Middle East; it has lost almost all of its former holdings in Iraq and Syria, and its people are fighting for their lives in the few places they have kept a hold of. From now on, the organization is yet another version of a Sunni terrorist group, like al-Qaida, whose only advantage is that the volunteers who fought for it in the Middle East have returned to their home countries and now have an easier time planning and carrying out terrorist attacks against foreigners.

It’s true that the idea of an Islamic caliphate will continue to echo for many Muslims after ISIS brought it to the forefront of the collective consciousness when it was as the height of its power. Read the full story.
