Time for a new Crusade against Islamic State

Published 01/07/2015

The recent triple terrorist attacks by the self-proclaimed "Islamic State" cast further a shadow of terror across the world.

Unfortunately, we could be finding ourselves at the beginning of a Third World War - a holy war, where extreme Islam has taken its sword (in their words) against the Cross.

One millennia before this, Christian Europe took on the Saracens in the form of the Crusades to protect the Christians in the East.

Now, 1,000 years later, thousands of people are leaving Syria and Iraq, seeking refuge in other countries and recounting horrific stories of atrocities.

These same countries must once more take the battle to the Middle East and, with all means of conventional weaponry available to them, eliminate Islamic State from the face of the Earth.
