Blind Hate Drives Islamists to Absurdity

One is a jihadist movement that seeks global dominance, beheading journalists,throwing gay people off of rooftops and massacring any perceived foe which crosses its path on the way to restoring a grand Islamic state.

The other is a sovereign state, a refuge for a people repeatedly targeted for annihilation throughout history. It also provides medical treatment for Syrians who have been victims of attacks from Islamic State terrorists and the Assad regime.
