Why jihadi strategy is working, and how to stop it

Whatever the Masters of the Universe would have us believe, there is a very long term jihadi strategy, and it’s working.

It is an arguable hypothesis that jihadism, in the sense of a holy war waged against unbelievers as part of a religious duty, saw its genesis in the fall of the Shah of Iran, and attacks against the West have been planned ever since by various terrorist organisations such as Al Qaeda.

In this context, to think that 9/11 was a one-off attack designed to give the Great Satan a bloody nose is naïve. It was a deliberate provocation to massive US retaliation as part of an overall strategy to draw the US into unwinnable conflicts in the Muslim world and thus unite Islam in a holy war against western civilisation.
