There’s No Such Thing as a “Self-Radicalized” Islamic Terrorist

Excerpt from http://aclj.org/jihad/self-radicalized-islamic-terrorist?sf33166567=1

Each of these incidents have been described as being carried out by a “self-radicalized” lone wolf terrorist.

Yet there is no such thing, and the label, more than mere semantics, trivializes and belies the reality we face.

In each of these instances, individuals who have prominently displayed their radical Islamic jihadist ideology on their social media or in other ways have undertaken horrific terrorist acts on prominent symbols of the West, soldiers and police officers.
