Summary of Story/Link ISIS posed a more direct threat to America and Europe. They plan to launch a terror attack on the U.S. This group who plans to do this is the Khorasan group who's leader was one of the few people who knew about the 9/11 attacks before they actually happened. Their leader, Muhsin al-Fadhli, has been tracked by American Intelligence agencies for years. It's hard to acknowledge the thoughts behind the threats by Khorasan, but as far as they know they may be more dangerous than ISIS.

They are taking the rights away from those who are suffering. Equality is also present as Khorasan and ISIS are not giving the people they are threatening and murdering anything to protect themselves while they have tanks, rockets, missiles and other military weapons. Therefore, rights and equality are the ideals related to this story.
