Al Qaeda's French Revolution11 January 2023
Al Qaeda's three deadly terror attacks in a forty-eight hour period raises several important questions. Is the radical Sunni terror network defeating the West? Did France overreact by post attack closures of synagogues and Jewish institutions? Are Al Qaeda and Islamic State cooperating? Is Iran in the shadows? How can the West win the War against radical Islamic terror groups? National Security's Dan Diker unpacks the latest Al Qaeda attacks with Dr. Eli Carmon, Senior Research Scholar with the Institute for Counter Terrorism at the IDC Herzliya.
Plus, VOI Arab Affairs Analyst Bassem Eid tells Diker that Arab Muslim states must now stand up and speak out against radical Islamic terror which risks staining and isolating the entire Muslim world. Eid insists that France must take tough measures to penetrate terror groups, identify and arrest perpetrators, and send a message to the rest of the world that extremist activity will never be tolerated by the civilized world.
