Wealthy donors and even officials in nations like Iran, Saudi Arabia and Pakistan have at times tolerated terrorist groups that attack religious foes in other nations. Inevitably, the extremists lash back, seeing to control the minds and hands that feed them. Such is the case with the self-proclaimed caliphate known as the Islamic State, also ISIS, ISIL or IS, which now controls extensive strands of territory in Syria and Iraq. The world, especially Muslim nations, must cooperate to cut the group’s financing used for weapons, operations and recruiting, urge the authors. They propose immediate regulations on centralizing records on terrorist backers, regulating all financial institutions and couriers, limiting value of cash transfers, registering charitable organizations and conducting audits.
