Fundamentalists have a very literal interpretation of the Quran, they advocate a literal implementation of Sharia law and believe the entire world should convert to Islam by force.
Right now there are dozens of terrorist groups on the planet, each fighting for their own cause, some bigger than others. Let’s briefly talk about the ones that are the biggest and most profitable. These are the same ones who, coincidence or not, have sworn a death oath to our lifestyle, our values and our lives.
First, you’ve got the infamous Al-Qaeda, formed in 1989 by Osama Bin Laden and a few others. It’s responsible for the September 11 attacks, the US embassy bombings in Kenya and Tanzania and the bombings in 2002 in Bali. Among other things. The 9/11 events were the ones that caused the U.S. to start the global “war on terror”, which, so far, has been anything but successful.
The Taliban is another fundamentalist group, also founded in the early 90s, led by Mohammed Omar and doing most of its illegal activities within Afghanistan. Though the US started a war in this country in 2001, after the 9/11 attacks, the situation is far from being peaceful.
Hezbollah is yet another feared Islamist group, though one that is more evolved. The Lebanese group has a political party, a television and radio station as well as seats in the Government. Lots of terrorist actions have been attributed to this group, including the bombings of certain embassies in Lebanon. Oh, and by the way, they are deeply in bed with Iran. In fact, the Pentagon is aware that any U.S. aggression towards Iran could be met with Hezbollah terrorist attacks on U.S. soil.
Last but not least, we have the terrorist organization of the moment, the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL. Numerous videos have spread like wildfire across the Internet depicting their barbaric mass executions, the training of pre-teens to use guns and their twisted thinking and propaganda to the world.
The actions of these terror groups are not limited to the Middle East. They have factions in Africa and Indonesia, where they conduct numerous other operations. Al Shabaab, for instance, is Al-Qaeda’s representative in Somalia while in Nigeria they have Boko Haram (which, in the meantime, adopted the Islamic State flag).
One thing is clear, Christians and Muslims cannot live together, despite leftists who claim we can all get along if we pacify them. We are trying to pacify them but they aren’t, and the funny thing is, it’s still us who are being accused of not being able to integrate with them well enough.
