| Paris, ISIS, and the Externalization of Evil
| Friday, November 27, 2015
|Only a few days have passed since the terrorist bloodbath in Paris, but it is already clear that the conclusions France and the West have drawn from the carnage are not only wrong, but likely to guarantee more of the same.
In short, they seem to believe that the terrorist acts of Nov. 13 were organized and carried out by ISIS and, therefore, destroying ISIS will prevent future terror and should become the priority. This is a dangerous delusion even if ISIS is proven to have been instrumental in the organization of the attacks, which is not the case to date.
Destroying ISIS, as desirable as that is by itself, will do nothing to reverse the frightening radicalization that has taken place in the burgeoning Muslim communities in Western Europe and increasingly in the United States. A radicalization that promises more mayhem for years to come, yet one that Western authorities refuse to fess up to let alone take decisive measures against.
blaming ISIS is a classical case of the ‘externalization of evil’
psychological syndrome is not difficult to prove. Less than a year
before the Paris events, in the Charlie Hebdo massacre, experts
and pundits alike pointed to Al Qaeda and no one mentioned ISIS.
Indeed, the audio claiming ISIS involvement was made by the French
Islamist, Fabien Clain,
who was sentenced to five years in jail in 2009 for recruiting
jihadists for the Middle East at a time when nobody had heard of ISIS.
It is a fact that virtually all of the conspirators identified so far,
as well as the thousands who flocked to jihad in Syria and Iraq, were
born, raised and radicalized in Europe before ISIS existed. This is the
disturbing reality that Western leaders refuse to admit that will
continue to exist regardless of whether ISIS does or does not. Read it all here.......................
