“The first step, I do still believe, is to show that there is an equation here: that jihadism equals death to the jihadis. That this is not a source of inspirational activity; it’s a source of self destruction.”
In my previous conversation with Steve Wynn, Chairman and CEO of Wynn Resorts, Steve explained why we must crush ISIS in Raqqa and Syria in order to fully defeat them and their propaganda machine. In this episode, Steve tackles the harder question: how do we stop the home-grown terrorists that fly below the radar, like the terrorists in Nice and Orlando? Steve explains that we must make it obvious to the would-be terrorists that jihadism only leads to their self destruction and that Islamic terrorism is a fruitless and losing endeavor. This also means that we must promote a positive alternative and explain that Western ideals and values – freedom, virtue, respect, equality, etc… – are superior to radical Islam.
