In an article titled “Muslims Worldwide Come to Grips With a Bloody Ramadan”, carried by the Associated Press and written by Zeina Karam and Sarah el Deeb, the authors begin writing that:
“As Muslims around the world celebrate the end of Ramadan, many are struggling to comprehend a wave of attacks that killed 350 people across several continents during the holy month and made urgent the question of what drives the militants to ever more spectacular violence against civilians.”
They continue by reminding the reader that:
“Weeks before Ramadan, IS called for its supporters to strike wherever possible. In a digital age where statements on the internet quickly proliferate, those calls appear to have found resonance among some circles of disenchanted Muslim youth around the globe.”
