Islamic State Expands to Malaysia, Infiltrates Military

The Islamic State terror group is expanding operations in Southeast Asia where in Malaysia more than 100 Islamists, including some linked to the military, have been arrested in recent weeks, according to a State Department security report.

“Malaysian authorities have now arrested more than 100 individuals linked to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), including over 30 suspects in March and April alone,” says a May 19 report by the Overseas Security Advisory Council (OSAC), a government group that promotes partnership between the State Department and the private sector. The Islamic State terrorist organization is known by three acronyms: IS, ISIS, and ISIL.

    The proper description of these islamics is daesh, or as the French prefer, daesh cutthroats.

      They call themselves Islamic State. That’s what I call them because it irks mohametans. I call them mohametans for the same reason.
