On the 14th year since 9-11, Islamic State haunts it

Here's an editorial from USA Today for the 14 anniversary to the day when the jihad struck American soil. Unfortunately, there's subtle deceptions in here regarding the Koran:
Fourteen years ago, the United States suffered a shockingly successful surprise attack by a little known Islamic extremist group based 7,000 miles away in Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. Since then, a U.S. invasion chased al-Qaeda out of its haven, and targeted strikes eventually eliminated most of its senior leaders, including Osama bin Laden in 2011. The danger from the group that killed nearly 3,000 Americans on Sept. 11, 2001, has waned.

Its influence lives on, however, through offshoot extremist groups that have eclipsed al-Qaeda — none more so than the Islamic State, the lightning spread of which through Syria and Iraq has been marked by medieval barbarity, adapted to the Internet age.

The group, also known as ISIL or ISIS, announced itself with carefully publicized video beheadings of captive Westerners and the burning alive of a Jordanian pilot inside a cage. Less visible in the West, but easy to find online, are gruesome videos of the slaughter of the group’s enemies.

As if mass murder weren’t enough, the group has regularized the rape and sexual slavery of women and girls it captures, justifying the brutality with twisted readings of the Quran. ISIL even issued a guide with 27 answers to militants’ questions, noting that the females’ “unbelief” makes it legal to enslave them.
"Twisted"? And they said all this without presenting a single verse from within the screedish scripture. They even stuck with the PC word "militants".

And while Islamic State is a danger, the whole notion the USA isn't still vulnerable is very naive thinking. There have been tons of terror attacks since, including the bloodbath at Fort Hood. And if that could occur, then attacks on a higher scale could happen again, and that's why we have to be alert in order to prevent such horrors from happening. The paper's just proven they're not as responsible as they want anyone to think.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
