Reign of terror

The horror, confusion, vulnerability, and understandable rage people feel when there is another terrorist attack on their streets never diminishes. These acts aren’t just anti-human, they’re also diametrically opposed to Islamic principles.

So where does this strain of terrorism come from? And why are Western leaders seemingly reticent when it comes to pinpointing the ideological source of the preaching that drives these attacks?

Ross Ashcroft joins former Norwegian Ambassador to Saudi Arabia Carl Schiøtz Wibye to discuss a specific ideology that has incubated and exported terrorism globally.
