Waking Up to the Dangers of Jihadist Fascism

The ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al-Husayni al-Qurashi al-Baghdadi is rapidly becoming a rock star in the Jihadist Islamic world.  The ghost of Adolf Hitler must be green with envy that he never had such religious fanaticism in his secular Nazi ranks.

The man has ambition.
