[Maps of] Worldwide Islamic Terrorism Since September 11th

chromatism.net, Herndon, VA, US

"The Bloody Borders Project. Worldwide Islamic Terrorism Since September 11th [...] Incident data through February 22, 2006, Pages republished March 16, 2006 [...] September 11th captured our attention. Prior to that, few in the West had taken serious notice of the extent and virulence of Islamic terrorism. It is both brutal and enduring. The name of this project was inspired by The Clash of Civilizations and The Remaking of World Order by Samuel P. Huntington [...]. The following quote is from an earlier article, 'The Clash of Civilizations?' in Foreigns Affairs from the summer issue of 1993: '[...] In Eurasia the great historic fault lines between civilizations are once more aflame. This is particularly true along the boundaries of the crescent-shaped Islamic bloc of nations from the bulge of Africa to central Asia. Violence also occurs between Muslims, on the one hand, and Orthodox Serbs in the Balkans, Jews in Israel, Hindus in India, Buddhists in Burma and Catholics in the Philippines. Islam has bloody borders.'

The goal here is to represent graphically the geography and the intensity of the violence on these 'bloody borders."
