    Iraq War Creating More Terrorism, Report Says

    (CNSNews.com) - Far from reducing terrorism and the number of terrorists, the war in Iraq has led to more terror attacks around the world, according to researchers from the and the New York University School of Law.

    Their report, scheduled for publication in the March/April issues of the left-wing Mother Jones magazine, asserts that Islamic terrorism has increased 607 percent worldwide since the March 2003 invasion of Baghdad, leading to a 237 percent increase in fatalities from terrorist attacks.

    Much of the increase cited in the report arises from the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq. When attacks in those countries were removed from consideration, the study found a 35 percent increase in the number of attacks and a 12 percent increase in fatalities since the invasion of Iraq.
