Foreign fighters flocking to new ‘caliphate’ established by jihadist group Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham

From China to Canada, young men are being drawn into a region that is becoming a breeding ground for terrorists. “The ‘Islamic State’ is already the next Afghanistan or Pakistan’s Federally Administered Tribal Areas in terms of a durable safe haven and training ground for global Islamic terrorism,” wrote Andrew Tabler, a senior fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy think tank, in the New Republic this week. Aaron Zelin, another fellow at the Washington Institute, has compiled a guide to the major terrorists and terror groups operating inside the “Islamic State.” He warns, “If history is any guide, the networks of fighters forged by the Syrian war will not remain silent in the coming years.”
