Many people are understandably confused and angered by the recent terrorist attacks in Paris and Beirut and trying to figure out why groups like ISIS even exist. Come to an exciting Freedom School class tonight to discuss the roots of groups like ISIS and al Qaeda. We will look at how and why these groups form and put it into context in a longer history of colonialism, Western economic dominance and countless wars launched by nations such as the United States. In particular, we will make the connections between the governments of the US, Saudi Arabia and Israel and helping the rise of extremist Islamic groups. We will also look at stateless terrorism and state terrorism as well as look at examples of terrorism in Latin America. Hope to see you at the Freedom School tonight, November 19 at 7:00pm!
