This is my answer to this Quora Question.
Militarily ISIS may be defeated but ISIS did not sign a surrender document. As a cause ISIS is now very much stronger. ISIS will ‘tell’ its defeat in Iraq and Syria as just one further proof that it is a martyr for the cause of an Islamic State and the ISIS ‘out of context’ and self-directed interpretation of the ‘Word of God’.
Support for ISIS will increase in all European countries as it directs much of its resources to promote its ‘Word of God’ using its new martyrdom in its developing ‘Word of God’.
However, it is the U.K which is now more vulnerable to ISIS sponsored terror attacks than any other country in the Western World. It is horrible to have to say this but it is highly likely more people in the U.K will die of terror attacks.
The U.K is where ISIS can get the most support and publicity for its cause and the most success. The U.K with its lack of militarily policed borders and entry points, its random checks which miss so much, its lack of a policed coastline and over one million illegal immigrants is Europe’s terrorism ‘Sitting Duck’.
The increasing divide created by the Government Establishment is too another causal factor in increased support for ISIS. SO15 and MI5 do not work with the People. They increase the divide by not involving the Islamic Community of the U.K. Instead they view them all as ‘potential enemies’. These are all ‘ignition points’ for a terrorist attack.
I doubt if at anytime modern U.K history has there been more of a reality gap between the U.K Government Establishment and many of the U.K people. Such is the divide in the U.K between the ‘moral attitude’ of the U.K Establishment and many of its citizens what may once have been only a protest can now be evolved with the fuel of ISIS rhetoric into an act of terror.
Now more than ever there is an urgent need to direct those who may use ISIS as a conduit for their hatred of Western Governments and Western People to an alternative to ISIS’s Word of God.
I have written to the U.K Government and MI5 of the urgent need to develop a counter to the declared word of God ISIS but such is their ‘distance from reality’ I do not even get an acknowledgement.
Politicians such as Theresa May the U.K Prime Minister have no idea of how to deal with ‘home-grown’ terrorism and MI5 have not yet developed the theory of terror acts in the U.K in order to fully understand its cause.
ISIS is now a tool available to anybody who wants to use it. Be it for martyrdom or a simple hared of the U.K Government Establishment.
ISIS will use every opportunity to gain more support in the U.K from those who seek martyrdom as an opportunity to destroy their perception of the U.K as being a ‘Crucible of Evil.
There are inequalities in the U.K which do not apply the Law equally to all. They will be seized upon by ISIS and used to intensify the anger of their supporters and to increase that support. That is what the Amber Rudd, Theresa May and MI5 seem so utterly unable to understand.
Unfortunately what can only be described as an ‘intellectually challenged’ understanding of U.K developed Terrorism by Theresa May, Amber Rudd and in part by MI5 will only cost more lives.
