Following yet another terrorist attack in Europe – this time in the Spanish city of Barcelona – the world’s leaders are once again expressing their outrage at jihadi terror.
Missing from these statements, however, is the fiery resolve of British Prime Minister Theresa May’s condemnation made last June after her nation was assaulted on the streets of London.
“The recent attacks,” she explained, “are connected…by the single evil ideology of Islamist extremism that preaches hatred, sows division and promotes sectarianism.”
It’s possible that frank assessments like this will still come in the days ahead. As a former CIA officer, I certainly hope so. Prime Minister May was in fact on to something critical.
Islam is at war with itself and the West isn’t helping.
