Is muslim terrorism more or less of a threat to the civilized world than it was on 911?
While the immediate threat of organzied attacks on American soil has diminished (there are still lone wolf attacks) due to the dismantling of Al Quaeda and its allies, the threat remains very real for those in Europe and anyone flying/traveling overseas. Egypt has had attacks weekly in both tourist and non-tourist areas. Turkey has become ground zero for battling ISIS. We now see the migrant crisis due to the Syrian Civil War,. While the problems in Syria are complex, Islamic exteremism is the most immediate.
Thailand, the Philippines, Maylasia, Indonesia and even China all face extremist threats now. Unfortunately, the threats will be with us for years to come and I only hope that as some nations begin to prosper economically, the rise of religious fanatacism declines.
I don't think it was ever really a threat to the US. Honestly, the US is more a threat to itself than any other countries combined.
3000 people killed on one day and no threat? Islamist terrorists planning lone wolf attacks, some massive, every day and America is its own biggest threat?
What a ridiculous statement. Blame the victim. Insulting to the people who died there. Guys from my high school and my neighborhood. Good guys. So on Sept. 11, just back off.
I agree, CJ Kelly.
They don't seem to blame Palestinians who harbor terrorists and weapons in their schools, hospitals and homes, but blame the US for 911. It's leftie madness.
That question could come right out of Nineteen Eighty Four because it's rife with a political narrative rather than stemming from independent thought. It all depends on what one means by "civilized world". Is Russia civilized? Is the Syrian government civilized? Are drone strikes civilized? Muslim violence in general is greater now in the Middle East than it was in 2001.

The executive order Trump has issued effectively (and intentionally) bans Muslims, and prioritizes non Muslim refugees above Muslim refugees. I believe this is the best recruiting aid that extremists could have hoped for. It's more than anything they could ever have achieved themselves, and...
