Expert: Islam Is “Metastasizing Worldwide”, Muslims Are “Feeling Empowered To Resurrect An Islamic Caliphate”

Daniel 7:7, “… in my vision at night I looked, and there before me was a fourth beast — terrifying and frightening and very powerful. It had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts …”

Revelation 13:3b-4, “… the whole earth marveled as they followed the beast. And they worshiped the dragon, for he had given his authority to the beast, and they worshiped the beast, saying, ‘Who is like the beast, and who can fight against it?'”

By Greg Corombos, WND – “A leading expert on Islamic terrorism says al-Qaida is different but as dangerous as ever because the U.S. failed to lead properly, and she says confronting the radical ideology is the key to victory.

Brigitte Gabriel said the good news is that more and more in the West are finally acknowledging the destruction radical Islam leaves in its path, but she said Americans should not hold their breath waiting for moderate Muslims to begin lashing out at extremist acts.

Gabriel grew up as a Christian in Lebanon and experienced terrorism firsthand. She is now president of and author of ‘They Must Be Stopped: Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It.’

Al-Qaida has evolved greatly from how it functioned around the time of the terrorist attacks in September 2001. Instead of a powerful central organization, it now exists primarily as many different regional organizations spread out from east Asia to North Africa and each group largely appears to be making their own decisions.

New FBI Director James Comey recently told New York Times reporter Michael Schmidt that al-Qaida’s current strength is a major surprise.

‘I didn’t have anywhere near the appreciation I got after I came into this job just how virulent those affiliates had become,’ Comey told the Times.

Director of National Intelligence James Clapper also acknowledges al-Qaida’s resilience.

Gabriel said those assessments are accurate because the U.S. hasn’t led well in the fight against radical Islam.

‘It’s because our government underestimated and did not identify the ideology behind al-Qaida,’ she said. ‘So today when we look at terrorist organizations across the globe, whether it’s Boko Haram, Al-Shabaab, you name it, Hamas, Hezbollah, etc., what brings them together is the same ideology as al-Qaida. Now it is metastasizing worldwide because we are seeing radical Islam and groups organized across the world feeling empowered to bring back and resurrect an Islamic caliphate and establish Islam as they see it in their own eyes as it was practiced in the days of Muhammad.’ …

‘We can continually dream on and on and on. Here we are, 12 years after Sept. 11, and with this thing that happened in Nigeria with the kidnapping of the schoolgirls, have you seen any demonstrations in Saudi Arabia against it, asking to bring back our girls?’ she asked. ‘Have you seen any mass demonstrations in Indonesia calling to bring back our girls? Have you seen any mass demonstration in Pakistan, in Afghanistan, in India?’

‘All these countries with a huge Islamic population, the so-called moderate Muslims who are not really jihadist, where are their demonstrations en masse to bring back these girls to their families and not sell them on the slave trade market? None, zip, zero.'” Read more.
