It’s of little comfort to know that ISIS trails Boko Haram in the 2014 death totals:
Boko Haram has overtaken Isis as the world’s most deadly terrorist organisation, according to a new report.
The Nigerian-based terror group, also known as Islamic State’s West’s Africa province (ISWAP), was responsible for 6,644 deaths in 2014.
In comparison, ISIS is believed to have killed 6,073 people in the same period.
I guess ISIS was the Jayvee after all.
Even better, look at the terrorist organizations responsible for the most deaths in 2014 (chart from The Independent):
We’re constantly told that the threat of radical Islam is overstated, and that they’re only responsible for a fraction of the deaths due to terrorism.
I think not.
