A cell of three people somewhere in New Jersey is really hard to disrupt because you don’t know about it. Secrecy is the greatest weapon of Islamic terrorists. It goes out the window when they have a state.
Victimhood becomes much harder. It’s why the PLO and Hamas don’t really want a Palestinian State. They want to demand one until the camels come home. And they want to blame Israel for it.
But actually having a state means having responsibility. You get treated like a country. And you get bombed like a country.
During this time period, there were 181 Islamic attacks in 22 countries, in which 1250 people were killed and 1475 injured.
(TROP does not catch all attacks. Not all attacks are immediately posted).

Here’s the reality: The Westboro Baptist Church is tiny, with only about 40 members. It is not recognized by any mainstream Christian church, including Baptist or other fundamental churches. So far as I know, the church members have never committed an act of violence: no shootings, bombings, stonings, stabbings, beheadings, or even punchings. They are disgusting and cruel, but otherwise completely harmless.
That’s what’s important to understand about the Progressive mind. These are not people who think like normal people. Instead, they are completely immersed in their secular religion, in the same way the Muslim fanatics are consumed by Islam. No matter what happens in the world, the Left looks for a cause in the tenets of their faith. In this case, it is Magic Shape Theory that says shaping metal into a gun imbues it with the power to take possession of a human, making them into a killer.
As we have seen at recent political rallies and gatherings, leftists are increasingly adopting the Islamist perspective that violence against nonbelievers in the advancement of their intolerant extremism is perfectly acceptable, because their opponents deserve it for their apostasy.
“It’s a well known fact that there is no such thing as Islamic terrorism. Instead there are just a lot of people out there, of Muslim origin, suffering from a unique set of psychological problems that cause them to shout Allahu Akbar while trying to kill people who aren’t Muslims.”
