    As long as islam exits there will be islamic terrorists, individuals and groups of them

    • “Lone wolves”, small cells, or ISIS/Al Qaeda like groups, the goal is the same.

      As long as Islamic theology incites “devout” Muslims to commit violence in the name of Islam, violent jihad will continue.

      We deal with Islamic theology or convert.

    I thought the “caliphate” was a big deal for ISIS. So much so that considered themselves a forerunner of the Islamic end times – they even had a glossy magazine called “Dabiq” in honour of the last battle that was to be fought between the “believers” and the infidels . Now that they are losing their “caliphate” why is it that no one is questioning the veracity of their vision let alone the basis for it?
