Wael Elasady, Palestinian-Syrian activist and member of the International Socialist Organization speaks about how the "War on Terror" made the world more dangerous.

In the days following the horrific attacks in Paris, our rulers have responded with a narrative and actions that have become all too familiar. French President Hollande immediately vowed to wage "merciless war" against ISIS and launched an intensive bombing campaign in Syria. He has implemented a "state of emergency" that grants exceptional powers to the state. Meanwhile, politicians jin the US and the media are already ramping up a scapegoating campaign against Syrian refugees and Muslims.
