Unraveled the region completely

Islam has made great advances in the last 42 years. Muslims around the world have become much more powerful, more united in their faith, more radical and militant, and Muslim communities.
They follow after mammon and worship at the altars of materialism and worldliness while still calling themselves Christians. Those of Islam see this hypocrisy and spread their faith and their message.
In some ways, we can understand why there’s some anti-Muslim sentiment in the West. Muslims were implicated in the 9/11 attacks and have been involved in other terrorist attacks around the world. But there’s been such a reaction that all of Islam is being targeted and criticized now, around a billion Muslims who love God and are generally peace-loving, godly people.

I would argue that the disastrous invasion of Iraq—something that I strongly opposed—has unraveled the region completely and led to the rise of al-Qaeda and to ISIS.
Sen. Bernie Sanders

The American invasion of Iraq created al-Qaeda, or strengthening al-Qaeda and created—or it created the incubator for the Islamic State, because they thrown millions of Iraqi ex-soldiers, ex-officers on the streets, without any hope, without any dignity, without any pension, nothing at all. As it is, in previous terrorist attacks the suspects were identified as radicalised Muslim youths. This is a subject that will not sit well with many people in the country and it may lead to pressures on the government for stricter surveillance of its Muslim population to the chagrin and further alienation of the minority group.
