The left tries to downplay the threat of radical Islamic terrorism as much as possible as part of its goal to further a multiculturalist society. Not surprisingly, you likely haven't heard much about a new terror report that's just been released.
The annual Global Terrorism Index compiled by Sydney-based Institute for Economics and Peace found that terrorism inflicted more deaths across the Western world in 2016 than any year since 9/11. The Global Terrorism Index concluded:
In OECD countries [world’s 35 leading industrialized nation], ISIL's transnational tactics in combination with lone actor attacks inspired by the group contributed towards a 650% increase in the number of fatalities. 21 of the 34 OECD countries experienced at least one attack, with the majority of deaths occurring in Turkey and France. Denmark, France, Germany, Sweden and Turkey all recorded the most deaths from terrorism in a single year since 2000. More than half of the 577 deaths were in connection to ISIL, whose attacks in Paris, Brussels and Ankara were amongst the most devastating in the history of these countries.
ISIL and its affiliates more than doubled the number of countries in which they were active jumping from 13 in 2014 to 28 countries in 2015, including many in Europe. This resulted in a record number of countries experiencing their highest levels of terrorism in any year in the past 16 years.
The report shows that the Open Borders Policy and the resulting mass exodus from Muslim countries to Europe completely backfired. This past year, European cities like Paris, London, Berlin and Brussels have all found themselves targeted in ISIS attacks. Despite this, progressives continue to remain in a state of denial.
ISIS has made it clear that it wants to destroy the Western world in the name of radical Islam, so opening borders is like handing terrorists the keys to our gates. President Donald Trump has been accused of racism and bigotry for his immigration orders, when in reality, he is just trying to protect the U.S. from suffering from the same fate as Europe.
If we want terrorism death rates to go down, we have no choice but to enhance stricter border policies to stop terrorists from entering the West in the first place!
