The real battle with Islamic State is at home

Australia is giving extremist leaders the ammunition they need to bring their fight to our shores.

With Australia apparently days away from joining air strikes against ISIL forces in Iraq, an even more important part of this battle was sagely identified by The Australian’s Greg Sheridan over the weekend.

Sheridan’s lengthy analysis of the rise of ISIL is essential reading. I might normally add, “for anyone who wants to understand the conflict in Iraq and Syria”, but in this case “for anyone” will suffice.
