1354 words - 6 pages ISIS vs Al-Qaeda Since launching one of the most publicized foreign attacks in history, the multi-national jihadist network known as Al-Qaeda has fuelled the better part of post-2001 terrorist discourse.

Another miscommunication people relate to Islam, is that Islam is“ISIS” or Islam claims “death to all”. First of all, none of that is even close to being true.
