“I don’t think people have grasped how significant these numbers are”

Some sobering data on terrorism has been released

terrorism expert Steven Emerson’s nonprofit Investigative Project on Terrorism (IPT) found that an average of nearly 30,000 people per year have been killed by terrorists since 2010, when terrorism’s death toll was 3,284. The study identifies two troubling trends: more attacks are happening, and they are deadlier than ever.

Emerson, the executive director of IPT, said,

“Everyone has known that terrorist attacks have generally been increasing yearly since 9/11. But the magnitude of the increase of the attacks surprised us, especially in the past five years. Even if you look back at the annual reports issued by the most senior analysts in the top five intelligence and counter-terrorism agencies, there is not one report that predicted or forecasted that we would likely see such a massive escalation of attacks.”

It’s out of control, and none of the Intelligence community predicted this.

According to IPT data, from 2001-2006, there was an annual average of 2,508 terror fatalities around the world, which rose to 3,284 between 2007 and 2011. During 2012-2013, that average tripled to 9,537, and, in the past two years, that number tripled again, raising the death toll to the current annual average: 28,708 per year.

Emerson urged a comprehensive approach targeting the ideology of Islam itself:

“There has never been a U.S. or allied strategy to go after radical Islam. There have been, however, strategies to go after specific groups like Al Qaeda or AQAP or ISIS. But these are all subsets of radical Islam.”

Oh bugger.  Someone said it out loud.  But will the governments of the world have the guts to accept this?

Not sure if Western intervention has inflamed it.  It can also be argued that without intervention those numbers would be even worse.

But it’s a moot point.  The problem is growing exponentially.

IPT expects the wave of terror to continue to grow in 2016 and beyond, particularly in Asia and Europe, thanks to the migrant crisis on the latter continent: “With ISIS losing large swaths of territory as well as key commanders, its center of operational gravity definitely appears to be shifting to Europe, where it can recruit among the more than 30 million Muslims who live in Europe,” said Emerson.

“Add to this mix the fact that thousands of mosques in Europe are controlled by Salfists, Wahabists and the Muslim Brotherhood – which indoctrinate their followers, and you have a future recipe for a massive increase in Islamist terrorist violence.”

One way or another, even though that nice Muslim person you know isn’t personally responsible, somehow, collectively, world-wide, this is a problem that will not go away by ignoring it.

Islamist violence is directly related to how many you allow into your country.

Muslim immigration into New Zealand must be reviewed urgently to ensure we don’t import similar problems some decades down the line.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
