Fascinating, how we in the West have difficulty with the terms extremism, jihadism, Islamism, and terrorism. How about assassins, which is based on the Arabic word of hashish, hasheeshen or some spelling like that. Those who used hashish; hence, derived the word assassin. The masters introduced strong hashish and described paradise to the students and martyrs

There are ways to defeat the onslaught; however, some of the harsh tactics of WWI and WWII have to be implemented. And long time miltary bases. There are still bases in Germany and Japan. The grandfathers, then the fathers had to pass away, so the third generation could be educated. Now, they play baseball in Japan and Germany has democracy.

Alas, Islamism and the code has spread out around the world. Many of the assassins are lone-wolves, such as the American/Muslim (Muslim and jihadist first) military psychiatrist of Fort Hood.

The "assassins" and their masters will continue the "strategy of a thousand cuts", and one of them being finance and economy. And, it isn't just al-Qaeda, which is a general term, I believe, that fits all.

The following quote is from the link... But beyond the threat of a large-scale attack, al-Qaeda's overarching strategy is working fairly well. The group is focused on undermining its enemies' economy; certainly the collapse of the U.S.'s financial sector in September 2008 made it seem mortal. In turn, that produced a strategic adaptation by jihadis, toward what they call the "strategy of a thousand cuts."

This strategy emphasizes smaller, more frequent attacks, many of which are designed to drive up security costs for their targets. Al-Qaeda operatives have placed three bombs on passenger planes in the past 22 months: Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab's underpants bomb in December 2009, and two bombs hidden in ink cartridges that were placed on FedEx and United Parcel Service planes in October 2010. Abdulmutallab's detonator failed, and the ink cartridge bombs were found before their timers were set to explode, but al-Qaeda doesn't necessarily view those attacks as failures. As radical YemeniAmerican preacher Anwar al Awlaki explained, the ink cartridge plot presented a dilemma for al-Qaeda's foes. "You either spend billions of dollars to inspect each and every package," he wrote, "or you do nothing and we keep trying."

Al-Qaeda isn't beaten yet

Another strategy is to convert infidels: in America people of colour, black, whatever, particularly in prisons.

Poll stunner: These American blacks OK with violent attacks

Shocking study shows high number holding favorable views of al-Qaida

The most dangerous Muslims in America may be black converts to Islam, according to a shocking new poll by the Pew Research Center.

African-American Muslims tend to hold the most violent views among U.S. Muslims surveyed by Pew in a poll released this week.

Fully 28 percent of U.S.-born black Muslim respondents said "suicide bombings and other violence against civilians" can be justified sometimes or at least in rare cases. That compares with 9 percent of foreign-born Muslims who hold the same view.

Then, there are the Arabs, mainly of Saudi Arabia. Close to 90% of the mosques in the world, and likely madrases, are financed by some Saudi princes and others. The vile Wahhab sect of Sunni is taught everywhere possible, particularly in prisons.

Who else do certain Saudis finance?
