"Islamic State" is becoming a great danger to the Western Democracies - US expert

Baku, Azerbaijan, November 15

By Anakhanum Khidayatova - Trend:

The "Islamic State" (IS) is becoming a great danger to the Western Democracies, is threatening consolidated independent democratic nations at the heart of Europe and making the world a significantly less secure environment, Peter Tase, the political analyst, the expert on international relations at Marquette University (USA), told Trend.

"Terrorist attacks against the French innocent civilians is a clear testimony of the attacks orchestrated by IS against the civilized World. The six terrorist explosions in Paris are an apparent coordination of IS which has also claimed responsibility in the downing of the Russian Airline passenger jet that was blown up in the skies above the Sinai Peninsula, Egypt territory", he said.

He added that NATO and regional security entities in Europe must lead a dynamic cooperation alliance together with the National Security and Intelligence Agencies of the United States, in order to prevent such terrorist attacks from happening again. "The recent IS attacks in the heart of Europe are a clear threat to the western moral values, democratic governance; these heinous acts harm international markets, spread a high level of fear - among the population - that has never been seen in Europe since 1945. International agencies focused in preventing terrorist acts in cooperation with the NATO Alliance together with democratic countries in the Caspian Region and the Middle East must increase their agility and responsiveness - coordination measures - in order to prevent such terrorist acts from happening again in Europe, United States, other countries in the Eurasian crossroads as well as Africa", he said.

"Sending special forces in the war torn countries of Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria - also send well trained intelligence officers in Yemen, Lebanon and other hotspots - must be a viable option on the table in order to inflict irreparable wounds against IS and its close associates in the Middle East and other countries. The Western Democratic Values must be defended unlike ever before in the old continent and such a commitment must also be reflected in the strengthening of prosperous democratic societies such as Azerbaijan and other Eurasian democracies", Tase said.

Numerous terrorist attacks were conducted in Paris on Nov. 13-14. Four gunmen systematically slaughtered at least 89 young people attending a rock concert at the Bataclan music hall.

Some 40 more people were killed in five other attacks in the Paris region, including an apparent double suicide bombing outside the national stadium where French president Hollande and German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier were watching a friendly soccer international.

129 people have died in the aftermath of a string of terror attacks in Paris, while 99 out of 352 injured are in a critical condition, Paris Prosecutor Francois Molins stated during a news briefing following a string of terror attacks in France's capital.
