It’s Deadly To Pretend ISIS Doesn’t Mean What It Says

While Rahami’s motivations are still allegedly unknown, it appears he traveled to Afghanistan, after which friends say he appeared to have been radicalized.

This is not only disingenuous—it’s reckless.

    If some a**hole tries to stab me, while yelling the snackbar thing, the last thing I care about is whether this idiot is part of a group or acting as a “lone wolf”. Dead is dead.

    It’s just another red herring; all part of the same cult.
    Degrees of rabidity.

    Islam is a random event that has lasted 1400 years.

  • It has “Islamic” in is name. That gave me the first clue that ISIS was associated with Islamism.
