ON THE ATTITUDE OF RADICAL ISLAMISM TO GLOBALIZATION: EXPERT OPINION
28.06.2014 4:59 AM views: 482

At the same time one can not deny that initially the islamization of Muslim societies is a movement in opposition to the West: peoples of poor Muslim countries realize that they will never join the prosperous states. Islamic radicalization as an extreme form of Islamism is an attack against the “golden billion”, which is the result of globalization.

Currently, the Syrian Armed Forces act as aides in the modern to combat terrorist plague: the more they destroy criminals in their territory including having Russian citizenship, the less will be chaos and blood in all countries even relatively peaceful. Killing Russian immigrants in Syria who wanted to play jihad, Syrian soldiers prevent terrorist attacks and in our country as well.
