The world has grown too small for us to imagine that we may ignore what happens in Egypt or Iraq or Pakistan. These are not merely humanitarian issues; they are national security issues. The threat emanating from ISIS’ worldview is global in scope, as the attacks in Paris, San Bernardino, Brussels, Orlando, Dhaka, Baghdad, Medina, and now Berlin and elsewhere make clear.

Millions across the Middle East live on the front lines in the fight against ISIS. Most of them, like the Christians of Egypt, Syria, and Iraq are defenseless and are every year targets of ISIS and other Salafi jihadists at Christmas and Easter.
