Sensible people are discouraged from thinking about the root causes of Islamic terrorism by mainstream media and academia. (AKA SJW's)

Osama Bin Laden was a well to do man from a well to do family who was radicalized.

The answer to the original topic question of the root cause of Islamic terrorism is, technology. Our common genome aside, the diversity of culture, understanding, governance and traditions for much of human history, were by and large sequestered by physical barriers...oceans, mountains, deserts, and distance....the world was indeed a large place. There were of course conflicts, and some of great magnitude. However, never to the degree we experience today where the clash of cultures collide in an instant on a daily basis on the internet. Where people can intersect with all sort of differing ideas, traditions, beliefs. It is a recipe for discord, and frankly quite predictable. The world has shrunk considerably. This phenomenon is not merely relegated to Islam solely. Even here on this forum we see....people who perhaps would never have known one another otherwise, have opportunity to defend their positions.

Why do you assume the bombings have anything to do with Christianity?

Lots of those neo-Cons were Jewish.

It was about oil and preventing oil from being priced in Euros.

In which case, should we be the least bit surprised that (some, not all) inhabitants of the countries we bomb and invade hate us, Christian or not, and then proceed to go to western countries and bomb us? Both sides are doing terrible things. Adults and children are being killed and maimed everywhere. This has got to stop.

Bombing and invasion was bad, agreed. I protested, absolutely did not want the attack on Iraq after those Saudis attacked the US on 9/11. Looked into Canadian citizenship.

But how do you explain Boko Haram? Or Islamic murders in the Phillipines? Or Sweden? Or Germany? Or Thailand? Or murders of tourists in Tunisia? Or the massive attack in Bombay? Or China?

Those other countries had nothing to do with the war. How do you explain them?

Could it just possibly be that Islam itself incites murder in its core teachings, and that ignoring the role of Islam gives tacit approval to yet more Islamic murders?

The first step to solving a problem is to speak honestly about it.

In the Ottoman empire, Christians and Jews were treated better than other religious groups in the western empires at that time (until the Armenian genocide, but it was not motivated by religion).

Christians and Jews were moneymakers for their Islamic rulers via the jizya tax. The Armenians in particular had good trade going with the Venetians and could freely travel back and forth.

And the Armenians were indeed killed largely because of religion, because it was feared that as Orthodox Christians, they would side with Russia and help break up the Ottoman empire even further.

My MIL is Armenian and I've read a bit about the genocide.

People don't forget the hundreds of years of Jihad and Oppression. The Balkans, Hungary, and Poland don't either. Germany, unlike Bulgaria, was never an Exploited Colony of an Imperialist Muslim Ottoman Empire that enslaved millions. Not because of arms, but because Magyars and Poles defeated the Turks at Vienna, while Germans were fighting amongst themselves.

In fact, parts of Europe are still under Turkish Imperialist Domination, like Thrace. It should be liberated.

When Jesus tells someone to intiate a bombing you will have a case. Until then you might as well understand that this is what Christ said about the enemies:

Matthew 5:44King James Version (KJV)

44 But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

The Quran. The Quran is the most misogynist, racist, and brutal text ever produced as a rule set for a religion. It allows for the killing of infidels, the stoning of women, and the enslavement of conquered people and unlike Christianity it never had its 2.0 version, just the original and brutal 1.0 version that is the origin of all Violent Islamic ideology.

True Christianity is to follow Christ. Look at what He did and emulate it.

True Islam is to follow Mohammed. Look at he did and emulate it.

Following Jesus means to live a life of sacrifice and service to others with a focus on healing.

What can we say about what it means to follow the example of Mohammed?

Nice bit of Russian propaganda to claim the CIA was funding ISIS and Al Qaeda while the CIA and our military were simultaneously risking their lives trying to destroy them.

I thought Russian propaganda was finally considered a bad thing by leftists these days?

Not every Muslim is an extremist. If we want to keep radical Islamists bottled up and not raping their way across the whole Middle East, taking major cities, oil fields and attacking Western Cities, we are going to have to ally with some moderate Muslims to keep a lid on things.

That's fine, lets just keep these allies in the Middle East. It is not safe to assume that "moderates" will remain so.

We have a new friend, Mohammad Bin Sultan the crown prince of Saudi Arabia. So far he is going in the right direction, but no, I would not fully trust him. A Muslim who puts Islam above all else can never be fully trusted.
The time will come when the world moves in to eradicate Islam from the face of this earth. That is when we will know which Muslims are with us, and which are against us.

We just saw today the videos where Trump retweeted Jayda Fransen's video of FSA Commander Omar Gharba al-Khojji destroying a statue of the Virgin Mary. At the time, he was part of the Obama-backed FSA (he later joined ISIS).


Christian refugees described to VOA the execution of a half dozen of their co-religionists in the northwestern village of al-Yakubiye, in Idlib province, by Sunni Muslims aligned with the Western-backed Free Syrian Army. Rahel, a 45-year-old former teacher, said, “Al Nusra didn’t come to our village; the people who came were from villages close by, and they were Free Syrian Army.”

...Nearly a third of Syria’s Christians, an estimated 600,000, have fled the country. Before the war, Christians accounted for about 10 percent of Syria’s population of 22 million.

https://www.voanews.com/a/syrian-iraqi-bishops-urge-faithful-not-to-join-refugee-flow/2977430.html



Most of the targeting of Syrian Christians has been blamed on al Qaeda affiliates Jabhat al-Nusra and the Islamic State of Syria and Sham (ISIS), but refugees like 45-year-old school director Rahel say the picture inside is more confused.

She says jihadists weren’t in her predominantly Christian hamlet of al-Yakubiye in Syria’s northwest province of Idlib. FSA fighters from neighboring Sunni Muslim villages were the problem.

Back in February, the news agency AFP wrote about al-Yakubiye, noting that although one of the three churches had been looted, relations between Syrian Sunni Muslims and local Christians were cordial. But in the intervening months, nearly all Christians have fled after half a dozen were executed with their heads chopped off and about 20 more were kidnapped. The evacuation of al-Yakubiye has added to a Christian exodus which is prompting fears that the civil war could spell the doom of Syrian Christianity.

“Al Nusra didn’t come to our village; the people who came were from villages close by, and they were Free Syrian Army,” Rahel says. Christians were targeted because they were seen as being pro-Assad, although she added some of the persecution was motivated also by greed, with the better-off being picked off first and their property divided by powerful local Sunni Muslim families.

I don't doubt that some of our Muslim "allies" turned out to be complete jihadi dirt-bags. Especially under Obama - when he was forced to recklessly put a coalition together to fight ISIS after foolishly pulling every last troop out of Iraq.

Agreed. Islamic Terrorism has been around since before the only thing found near Langley was Chief Many Feathers' teepee.

The first Islamic terror attack was the Hudnyah when Muhammed broke a peace treaty to attack his neighbors in a dastardly, dishonest raid.

This is what has always happened in EVERY SINGLE Islamic country to the non Muslims:
1. They are forced to convert.
2. They end up raped and murdered like the Yazidis.
3. They leave the country, and take refuge in a non Muslim country.

Take the example of Iran when they were invaded by the Muslim Arabs. They were victimized like the Yazidis, and forced to convert to Islam. Today they are barbarians that stone women to death. Some were fortunate to escape to India, a non Muslim country, where they were welcomed. After all these centuries, they peacefully and happily live in India, prosper, and practice their religion, Zorasterianism or whatever it is called. They do not stone women to death.

Take the example of Pakistan, which split from Hindu India upon Independence from the British after WW2. 25% of the population in Pakistan were Hindus. Today, they are only 3% of the population. They were treated like the Yazidis, forced to convert, and many escaped.

History repeats itself again and again in every single country where Muslims start getting close to the majority. This disgusting and barbaric religion is not peaceful, not moral, and can never be civilized. It must be eradicated at any cost.
