What gave rise to Al Qaeda or modern terrorism in general? One could speculate or point fingers at people, certain situations, events or alliances, but at the end of the day, terrorists are almost exclusively individuals who use religion as a battering ram. Whether it’s the IRA, the Westboro Baptists or Al Qaeda, the founders/leaders of these groups have all decided that this is what God intended – that they are doing God’s work. At least that’s what they profess.
I added the Westboro Baptists because they are psychological terrorists, although as despicable as they may be, to date I don’t think they’ve killed any innocents.
Okay, so that’s how they get started. But what facilitates them, particularly Al Qaeda and other Islamists?
Well, that one’s easy… Liberals. Yes, you read that correctly. It’s liberals and their unwillingness to recognize and call these groups what they are, Islamic jihadist terrorists.
