Abstract

On Sept. 11, 2001 Islamic fundamentalism became a permanent and unwanted fixture in our lives. We thought with the death of Osama bin Laden and our military withdrawals from Iraq and Afghanistan, we would return to the way things were on Sept. 10, 2001. Unfortunately, ISIS has made this impossible. They are more organized and militarized than Al Qaida, and more deadly than the Taliban. ISIS is still in its infancy and as soon as they finish consolidating their power they will be stronger and more deadly than both Al Qaida and the Taliban combined.
