Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor (JTTM) Weekend Summary

Note: This is not easy to read but being forewarned is the name of the game.  Hopefully, the West has time to thwart this insanity but. left unchallenged, the evil forces will continue to spread; that is their goal.  Their arrogance in  such advertising  is, in itself, frightening. The enemy feels that it has nothing to lose and martyrdom is honorable. To us their ideology lacks humanity. This is the 'language' of their radicalism. 
Our problem is that we need strong Western leadership to effectively counter the enemies of democracy and that it sorely lacking today.  One cannot make agreements with those whose goal it is to destroy the Western civilization and replace it with a caliphate and sharia.  They have one thought in mind and are deceptive in order to achieve this.  We must not be fooled.CG
