Perpetual War For Perpetual Funding

“As for universities, the massive increase in courses, programs, research centres, grants, articles, books and academics focusing on ‘terrorism’, Islam, extremism, and so forth would not have happened without Bin Laden. … So I propose that both ‘intelligence’ agencies and universities institute an annual ‘Osama Bin Laden’ day, saluting the man who inaugurated a golden era of funding.”

For the Reverend Roland T. Boer, sing.

“For jihadis, conflict is perpetual and everyone has a part … This is not the end of terror but an emphatic punctuation point in the ongoing security measures against jihadi extremism.”

Shahram Akbarzadeh is professor of Asian politics (Middle East and central Asia) at the University of Melbourne.
