Washington, July 14 (ANI): An American organization has designed a website that enables users to track radical Islamic movements worldwide.
The World Almanac of Islamism site, 'http://almanac.afpc.org,' was designed by the American Foreign Policy Council (AFPC), a non-profit U.S. organization dedicated to bringing information to those who make or influence US foreign policy, as a guide to keep tabs on the rise and fall of radical Islam worldwide.
"Charting the worldwide spread of radical Islamist ideology, as well as the successes and failures of foreign governments in confronting this challenge, is essential to informed policy-planning on the part of the US government and our allies in this struggle," read the site's introduction.
A central theme of the guide is that radical Islamist ideology is a global phenomenon, rather than one that is limited to specific regions, Xinhua reports.
"The overarching theme is that (radical networks) act in multiple areas. It's not just confined to the Middle East or any one region. It's truly a global threat that we face," said Richard Harrison, research fellow and program officer at the AFPC.
The site's creators, however, believe that radical Islamic movements are the biggest threat to this generation.
"We believe the threat of radical Islam is the defining threat of this generation, at least in ideological terms," said Ilan Berman, vice president of the AFPC. (ANI)
