Preventing Extremist Narratives: Islam, Not ISIS
Recent terrorist attacks in Paris, France; Aden, Yemen; San Bernardino, California, and at least seven other cities have been linked to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), fueling worldwide terror alerts and fear. After the attacks in California, presidential candidate Donald Trump called for a ban on Muslims entering the U.S. Recent polls indicate a segment of Americans support such a ban, illustrating the continued association between Islam and terrorism.
