Topic: Terrorism in the Middle East and Latin America

Thread Prompt: In the Middle East, Israel has responded to terrorism with several controversial counter-terrorist polices to include a wall and selective assassinations.

Why or why not?

Forum 5 (Module 6)  Topic: Radical Islam and the Threat to America

Thread Prompt: Investigative journalist Steve Emerson originally documented the existence of jihad in America. Then, Brian Jenkins found 46 publicly recorded attacks or attempted attacks from radicalized individuals between 9/11/2001 and December 2009. More recently, Ryan Mauro and the Clarion Project exposed radical Islamic groups inside America. Do you agree or disagree with these findings? If there is a radical Islamic presence inside America, what should be done about radical ideology and by whom? Prior to preparing your answer, you may want to watch “The Third Jihad” available online at: www.thethirdjihad.com and on YouTube at the Clarion Project channel.
