Islamist terrorist groups have found a new home and it’s not in the Middle East — it’s in Africa. Specifically, the Sahel, a band of territory in West Africa between the Sahara desert and the savannah.

Since the early 2000s, Islamist extremist groups have increasingly strengthened their base here — training fighters, raising money, and launching a massive number of attacks.

Some are linked to al-Qaeda and other Islamic State. This is throwing these already weak countries into crises and making the region one of the most dangerous in the world.

  5. People don’t need government to be safe. They need the west and intelligence community to stop with the terrorist groups and slaughtering of indigenous people. And stop infiltration of countries to promote civil wars between groups they’re sponsoring and a foreign state. We need to each live in our own countries and mind our own business but the central banks have to go!

  6. Simple strategy of Islam… first spread terrorism around the world then force them to convert in Islam …then show some humanity just to show how peaceful religion they are… Islam is a cancer of this beautiful earth…bt the spread of this cancer in Africa n world is very fast…hope god will help ur from these terrorists…

  13. Islam is cancer for the world.

  14. @Vox what is the audio track you used for this video? It's great! Good job and research btw.

  15. If these parts are poor in financial condition then main question arises that who is providing these islamic estates with weapons .
    logically the country which have most number of weapons ( and i.e America )

    And do not forget who is backing up saudi arabia to destroy yemen .

  16. Thank you Vox for all the videos. I always have had interest in world politics and history and just loving all your videos

  17. Feel the pain too 🇮🇶

  18. Hey team vox! Love your videos… The conclusion line of this video was half truth. The terrorism happening here is because of education which is Islamic education. It has it's own infrastructure which leads one towards violence. Be it rich like Osama Bin Laden or poor isolated like north east Nigeria.

  19. Still terrorism don't have any religion

  20. Did we forget who created ISIS?

  21. Islam has nothing to do with ISIS and Al-Qaeda
