Islam and the ideology of victimization

Attacks south of the border have once again raised concerns about the nature of terror and what can be done about it.

Law enforcement is doing its bit to monitor and thwart the threat, though some rightly claim that more could have been done to prevent the latest attack in Manhattan that sent 29 people to hospital.

On the ideological side, ISIS and its ilk continue to gain traction in some circles, and the terrorist outfit was quick to claim responsibility for the stabbing spree by a Somali American in Minnesota.
