Today marks the beginning of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan during which ISIS has called for an “all-out war” on the “infidels” in the West.
A recent YouTube video aimed at ISIS supporters said, “Muslim brothers in Europe who can’t reach the Islamic State lands, attack them in their homes, their markets, their roads and their forums.”
Appearing on Fox News, General Jack Keane on Friday warned that more attacks like the one in Manchester, UK will occur during Ramadan, a 30-day period of fasting and reflection that lasts until June 24.
“We’re going to have a wave of attacks worldwide, unfortunately,” Keane said. “Attacks always go up during Ramadan.”
Keane asserted that one of the major challenges in the fight against terror is that NATO leaders lack the “political and moral courage” to boldly face the threat of ISIS and their murderous ideology.
“Most of these European nations are helping the threat of radical Islam to grow inside their nation,” Keane said, noting the failure of policies such as open borders and multiculturalism.
According to Keane, the threat arises primarily from impoverished Muslim enclaves in European countries, where many people feel isolated and disenfranchised.
“That’s how the threat grows,” Keane said.
