Eye on the world: Responding to terrorism

In “Caring for Islamic State’s victimsThe Christian Science Monitor reports that the Islamic State (IS) militant group in Iraq and Syria has killed thousands of people, while its supporters abroad have killed hundreds more. “IS’s death-filled violence is designed to instill fear and weaken the resistance of its perceived enemies….” However, in the wake of recent events like the IS-inspired mass shooting in Orlando, Florida, the Monitor asserts that “what clearly unites the rest of the world against IS—and sets it above the group—is the way that the victims of IS are treated with life-affirming compassion and truth that help restore their dignity and identity.” Humanity’s powerful response to terrorism with love will quell the bondage of hatred.
