I do not understand the science of it, but probably the very very far right and the very very far left do meet somewhere in space and sort of merge.

The idea of radical Islam embracing the radical left is beyond comprehension unless we go back to the age old explanation that what will unite people is a common enemy.

Now we have to deal with the question of the radical left in the US seeing us as the enemy to such a degree that it is merging with radical Islam who sees them as infidel,not worthy of living.

While radical Islam despises the infidel ,the far left does not say one single bad word about a religion so fanatic that it wants the whole world to accept it.

So as I look at the two polarities who merged for the purpose of harming the US ,I see radical Islam as by far smarter which is no good news at all because it makes a formidable enemy.

That it will destroy the far left is no consolation.
