The number of disconnected youth, those ages 16 to 24 who are not in school and are not employed, has reached significant levels in the United States and Western Europe. This trend is coupled with the fact that more and more foreign fighters are joining Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in Iraq and Syria. In particular, Western youth have been the target of radicalization by ISIS and other terrorist groups, and the appeal and lure of such groups seem unlikely to subside. A similar trend is...

This research focused on transport characteristics of electrons and holes through narrow constricted crystalline Si wall-like long channels that were surrounded by a thermally grown SiO2 layer. The strained buffering depth inside the Si region (due to Si/SiO2interfacial lattice mismatch) is where scattering is seen to enhance some modes of the carrier-lattice interaction, while suppressing others, thereby changing the relative value of the carrier's effective masses of both electrons and holes,...

Malaysia is an increasingly important partner of the United States for a host of political, economic, and security reasons. Despite policy differences, the occasionalpublic spat, and media mischaracterizations, in reality U.S.-Malaysia relations are quite robust and underpinned by strong fundamentals such as counter-terrorism cooperation, burgeoning trade links, and important military-to-military ties. Since the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, government-to-government ties have improved...

In this context, the past thirty years has a clear winner, Iran. Over the past several decades, the United States vital interests in the Middle East have grown. The U.S. remains committed to ensuring the unimpeded flow of oil to global markets and the security of Israel. The Sunni and Shia...

This paper is not a political statement, although it contains value-judgments about anti-Islamic rhetoric heard in the 2016 US presidential campaign. There is, however, an unavoidably political element to this paper, since it considers the potential implications of ideas first publicly discussed by candidates competing for the Republican Partys 2016 presidential nomination. While anti-Islamic rhetoric and actions are integral to the scenario described, the characters are fictional and are not...

Indonesia practices a unique form of syncretic Islam that embraces tolerance and pluralism, leading to a moderate form of Islam that provides a degree of resistance to radicalization. This version of Islam contrasts with the dominant policy of Saudi Arabia and some neighboring states which impose strict, conservative, and puritanical social practices. Religious doctrines of intolerance toward western values, mysticism, and variations in local practice have spread to Islamic communities in...

Islamist militant organizations appear to be evolving from traditional disassociated networks, al-Qaedas model, into centralized regional powers with the intent of developing into national governments. This thesis presents a comparative case study of five mainstream Islamist militant organizations, the Islamic State, Jabhat Fatah al-Sham, al-Shabaab, the Afghan Taliban, and Hezbollah, to determine how close they have come to statehood and how such a change may affect U.S. homeland security.

Oldest historical records describe the original Jesus movement, as it was before being eclipsed by Pauline Christianity. Two-thousand years ago, an itinerant Jewish preacher and miracle worker walked across the Galilee, gathering followers to establish what he called the "Kingdom of God". The revolutionary movement he launched was so threatening to the established order that he was captured, tortured, and executed as a state criminal. Within decades after his shameful death, his...

The situation in Syria following the siege and battle for Aleppo remains catastrophic, according to the United Nations (UN), and the UN General Assembly in December 2016 empowered a new, independent panel to investigate and prosecute possible war crimes. While the international community has lamented the human costs of the war, a political solution to its end has been elusive. U.S. priorities in the war have included the departure of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and, more pressingly, the...

Toxin/antitoxin (TA) systems are nearly universal in prokaryotes; toxins are paired with antitoxins which inactivate them until the toxins are utilized. Here we explore whether toxins may function alone; i.e., whether a toxin which lacks a corresponding antitoxin (orphan toxin) is physiologically relevant. By focusing on a homologous protein of the membrane-damaging toxin GhoT of the Escherichia coli GhoT/GhoS type V TA system, we found that YdcX (renamed as orphan toxin related to...

Salafi-Jihadist groups such as al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, and ISIS threaten US national security and the stability of the Middle East. The ongoing fighting in Syria and Iraq and Salafi-Jihadist global terrorist attacks from Paris to Mali show that we understand relatively little about how this radical ideology propounds violent goals and propels its followers to devise strategies to achieve them. The United States has fought al-Qaeda affiliates and ISIS for fifteen years without preventing them from...

Because of the complexity, nomenclature describing the region can be confusing; as a result, this paper uses the term Greater Levant to describe Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon, in their contemporary condition. The term Greater Levant is intended to drive home both a political and historical point: Syria and Iraq no...

In the wake of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, it became apparent to U.S. foreign policy makers that Northwest Africa was more than just a humanitarian concern. This realization led to the establishment of a multi-pronged, multi-year counterterrorism strategy in the Trans-Sahara region that incorporated diplomacy, development, and defense. Despite these unprecedented efforts, the Sahel sub-region has witnessed a steady rise in the presence of Salafi-Jihadist organizations since 2003....

Analysts disagree on how to characterize al-Qaidas evolution. One perspective regards jihadi-Islamism in general to be self-marginalizing. A second perspective describes the merging of discrete jihadist grand strategies that is considered symptomatic of the decline of al-Qaida and its allies. A third finds that al-Qaida is gathering strength. This study expands upon the gathering strength perspective, contending that al-Qaidas successes are derived from its design orientation and competence....

This thesis argues that using precise language to define this threat is necessary to achieve a common understanding of the VSJ movement and posits that, based on the resources focused on this threat for the past 14 years, a unified national strategy is warranted. The use of the generic term terrorism has resulted in...

The soft power of a country is based on three resources: the culture, the value of internal policy, and the strength of the foreign policy. In international politics, soft power is among the ways in which success can be achieved without hard power. The concept of soft power has become an integral part of todays language for Saudi Arabias political leaders, who use soft power to confront challenges with Iran. Such a...

This change demonstrates American exceptionalisms tainted definition due to its influence in foreign policy decision making.

The 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran changed the geo-political landscape of the Middle East. The new regime in Tehran, hostile to the United States, threatened American interests in the region. In response, the United States adopted a policy of containment aimed at restoring a regional power balance favorable to the United States. Since that time, broader U.S. policy in the region has been driven in large measure by pursuit of this policy. Minimizing Iranian influence became a critical component...
