This is a bullshit description of what happened by those who
would like to escalate an already intolerable situation.

Of what? Ridding it of fundamentalist Muslims? Why stop
there? Why not fundamentalists of all faiths or at least all
who believe countries should be run by religious memes instead
of for secularism? Assuming we know what those terms mean and
do not mean. Great! You will have stepped right into the hands
of the predictors of apocalypse. Wonderful. Should get us to
Singularity in nothing flat. You betcha.
