    Notes
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Spoiler: show We are in a time where the world is facing the worst threat it has ever seen since the end of the Cold War. Radical Islamic terrorism has gained territorial ground in Iraq, Syria, Libya and various African regions. The objective of these jihadist groups is striking fear in the West, with their objective being making us live in constant terror. But the West must not submit to these threats.

    This Act will provide the tools our anti-terrorism forces need to fight the menace of ISIS and related organizations. As a country, our main focus must be doing all we can to protect our citizens. After Paris, San Bernardino, Philadelphia, Jakarta and many other attacks, it is our moral duty to do all in our power to prevent future attacks in the UK because if one does happen, and blood is spilled, the people will ask if all possible actions were taken by their leaders to prevent the attack.
