2015 Predictions for Islamist Terrorism Worldwide

Huffington Post reported: In 2014, we saw the threat of al Qaeda continue to spread via affiliate groups in the Middle East, Asia and Africa. We also witnessed the unexpected resurgence of ISIS in Syria and Iraq. According to global risk firm Verisk Maplecroft, terrorism-related deaths worldwide increased by almost 25% between Nov 1, 2013, and Oct 31, 2014. What's in store for 2015? Here's what we can expect of Islamist terrorism in the coming year..."

For instance:

"Lone Wolf Terrorist Attacks on Western Soil Will Increase. There will be more individuals who are inspired in some way by al Qaeda or ISIS to carry out small-scale attacks with maximum publicity. We just saw this happen on Dec. 15 with the gunman taking hostages in a Lindt café in Sydney, Australia, and on Oct. 22 with the Parliament shootings in Ottawa, Canada. This will necessitate closer monitoring of terrorist-linked social media and websites that may inspire such attacks. But it also reminds us that it is impossible to monitor everyone who might have access to such information, or to determine if such exposure might trigger some kind terrorist act. This will be the most significant terrorist threat for countries in the EU and North America to deal with - and the most difficult to prevent."
See the rest.
