    Obama’s foreign policies directly contribute or cause this. Too many in the Middle East are intolerant and ruthless as a hallmark of their culture and religious beliefs (those who are extreme). Islam is not quite a “religion of peace” that the adherents claim, and there are centuries of conflict that confirm this (not that other places have not also this type of intolerance and extremism in their recent past). But Obama has made this so much worse. It’s a mess and it won’t be confined to just a few places; it is spreading all over Africa and the Middle East. I believe that Obama privately supports Islamists.
