Global Terrorism

Global Terrorism

ISIS; Hamas; Iran. They all represent different branches of radical Islam. We send our condolences to the people of Australia over the tragedy and loss of innocent life they suffered this week at the hands of terrorism. International Islamic terrorism knows no borders. We must unite as an international community to defeat these forces of evil; the success of our fight rests on our ability to continue to prioritize the conflict and come together against fascism and oppressive regimes.
