Islam and Extremism: What Is Underneath

    William DiPuccio at Gatestone Institute: Islamists seem to be driven not only to establish the hegemony of Islam by supplanting secular governments and legal systems, but also by enforcing religious purity according to their own standards.

In the blink of an eye, they were no longer visible. At the start of the last century, there were tens of thousands of Jews in Yemen; today, there are perhaps hundreds
