The answer is simple enough, Islam's holiest book the Quran teaches muslims that it is their duty to subdue the world and implement Sharia. Some muslim's who I call fundamentalist's take it and run with it, they support jihad and other forms of subduing the world. Other muslims just don't, they say they interpret the Quran differently. However, if you read the Quran (as I have) it is not that subjective and clearly it is the most hateful book ever written.

While there are terrorist incidents performed by Non-Muslims, Muslims are disproportionately responsible terrorism. In the last ten years, over 85% of terrorist incidents and 85% terrorist-related fatalities were perpetrated by Muslims. Considering that Muslims are roughly 23% of the world population, this is quite an amazing statistic and merits some explanation.

There are numerous factors involved:

Islamism and Jihadism
Islamism is not a religion; Islam is the religion. Islam is a religion and Jihad is a religious concept within Islam. Islamism and Jihadism, however, are political ideologies whose goal is to bring the religious tenets of Islam into the daily functioning of a government and its laws. Jihadism is a form of Islamism that not only wishes a particularly repressive version of Islamic Law to be instituted, but believes that violence in defense of the faith is the preferred way to do this. Jihadism, like Islamism, is a political ideology rooted in Islamic religious concepts. There are certainly Qur'anic verses that can be read by those seeking to be intolerant and violent of good grounds to do so. Q: 3:19 claims that the only religion that is acceptable to God is Islam. Q: 3:110 claims that Muslims are the best people in all history. Q: 8:55 claims that those who disbelieve are the worst of animals. Q: 9:29 argues for the repression and inequality of Jews and Christians before Muslims. Q: 2:216 argues for fighting against "enemies" even if you would prefer not to. There are numerous other verses that support this connection. While it is only a minority (between 10-20%) of Muslims who are Islamists and a far smaller number (<3%) who are Jihadists, almost all Islamists and Jihadists are Muslims and these small percentages still translate into millions of people. It is important to note that the validity of Islamism and Jihadism exist as only one reading out of many possible readings of the Qur'an, which is why there are many legitimate readings that condone secularism.

Western Foreign Policy
Muslims have a strong sense of humiliation over Western colonization, the subsequent repressive and authoritarian secular regimes that were supported by Western countries, and the numerous wars fought by Westerners in Islamic countries. That form of rage is easy to exploit in convincing young men and women to perform violent acts.

Economic Disenfranchisement
In many cases, the lower rungs of terrorist groups are made of people who literally have no money. They see their joblessness and unemployment as hopeless scenarios and see the possibility of religious, political, and social goals being achieved through violence as being a unique form of personal relevance.

General Unrest
The Middle East and many other parts of the Islamic World are inherently unstable societies because they are ruled by authoritarians and/or the countries are divided into numerous fractions.

The Middle East is over 90% Muslim, so it should not be surprising that most Middle Eastern Terrorists are Muslims. (If we divide between Sunnis and Shiites, there are more Sunni Muslim Terrorists.) There are terrorists of other religions in the Middle East, but the overwhelming majority are Muslims.


No. The two terms are distinct. There are some terrorists who are Muslims. Most Muslims are not terrorists and many terrorists are not Muslims.


Just because most of the terrorists are Muslim, it does not mean that all Muslims are terrorists. Thinking all Muslims are terrorists shows an example of prejudice that is caused by inductive reasoning.


Most of the Muslims believe that the extremist are not real Muslim because they kill which Allah has forbiden. So that means 0% of Muslims are terrorist but 100% of extremist are terrorists.


YES AND NO. Some Muslims become terrorists, some Muslims kill terrorists, and most Muslims simply ignore the issue.


There have been at least 48 attacks by Islamic terrorists in the US since 1977. Though Muslims only represent 1% of the US population, more than 80% (186 of the 228 cases) of all convictions tied to international terrorist groups and homegrown terrorism from 2001 to 2011 involve defendants driven by a radical Islamic agenda, and 94% of terrorism deaths (mostly 9/11) were caused by Islamic terrorists. Still, these Muslim terrorists only amount to .00004% of the total number of Muslims in America, so it's actually true what they say: "Most Muslims are not terrorists, but most terrorists are Muslim".


There is the pervasive stereotype that Muslims are terrorists because the vast majority of terrorism worldwide is currently perpetrated by Muslims. Of course, these actions represent little more than a rounding error in the overall Muslim population, but their consistency combined with the fact that most Westerners do not have consistent interactions with Muslims has bred this stereotype.


It depends on how the question is read as to what answer is provided.If it is read as: Are Muslims all extremists and terrorists?, then the answer is clearly no. There is a very small percentage of Muslims who are both extremists and terrorists. There is a somewhat larger population who are extremist but are not violent. However, the majority of Muslims are neither extremist or terrorist.If it is read as: Are all Muslim extremists also terrorists?, then the answer is still no, but this is less obvious. Extremism in Islamic doctrine does not necessarily lead to terrorism. It may lead to increased prayer, increased devotion, earlier marriage, more children, etc. We can note many non-violent extremist Christian groups in the US, such as the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints, the earlier Puritans, etc. While most Muslims who are also terrorists come from an extremist background, there are many more extremist Muslims who are not terrorists than the amount who are.


Not all! Answer 2 However, at the moment most terrorists are Muslims. This is partly because they are very sensitive to being offended. Most other faiths take it on the chin but Muslims don't and many of them end up as terrorists to get their own back.


no actual real Muslim supports terrorism in the Qur'an it specifically says if you kill some one you go to hell


I do not think Donald Trump hates Muslims in general. What he hates and fears is terrorists and he seems to think that most terrorists are Muslims, in particular Muslims from certain countries such as Iran and Syria.


Not all Muslims are terrorists, but the terrorists who act in the name of an Islamic jahad at the encouragement of their Imams give the impression that they are. People who look beyond the sound bites do see the error in painting all Muslims as terrorists since most are living their faith with their families, work and country.


This is a common stereotype of Muslims. They are viewed as terrorists that kill innocent people but this is true for a very small select of Muslims that take the religion to the extreme. The majority of Muslims, close to 100% most likely, are not terrorists. There are terrorists in mainly every religion too, but almost 100% of every religion's followers are not terrorists and no not hate everyone.


Most of them are not extremists &amp; should not be lumped in with the terrorists.


The reason that the US culture is opposed is because of all what Americans are doing. They are putting Muslims on the spotlight and they are framing all Muslims for what some people are doing. The people known as Terrorists claim to fight in the name of Islam, but they are not. In Islam, one of the major sins is killing yourself or others. This is why the Terrorists are not Muslims, even though they claim to be. In America, since people don't understand this, they go and think that all Muslims are like this, and one can't judge a Muslim by the actions of non-Muslim Terrorists. This is why many Islamic states, like Iran, don't like the US and its culture.


Answer 1there not but they choose to follow that way and not all muslims are terroristsAnswer 2The underlying premise of the question, that all terrorists are Muslims, is false. While a large percentage of terrorism around the world is perpetrated by individuals who consider themselves as Muslims, not all terrorists are Muslims. There are Christian terrorists, such as the Irish Republican Army and Radicalized Christians who cause bombings or target abortion clinics. There are Jewish terrorists, such as those who were members of the Irgun and the Lehi. There are Hindu terrorists, such as the Tamil Tigers. There are Buddhist terrorists, such as several violent orders of Japanese monks like the Ikko-Ikki.The reason that more terrorists come out of Islam, though, is that the Qur'an, the chief Holy Book of Islam, has numerous verses of conflict that are seized upon by individuals across the Islamic World. These individuals feel that they, both as individuals and as a community, have been mistreated by the rest of the world, especially the Western Powers. As a result, they follow the violent passages to their inevitable conclusion. Most Muslims, however, do not feel the need to read those verses and instead choose have the more peaceful passages motivate their worldview.


Most Arabs are Muslims, while most Ashantis are Non-Muslim (Atheist, Ashanti Animist, or Christian).


Ever since 9/11, all we hear on television is that Muslims are terrorists, that they want to kill all Americans/Europeans/non-Muslims. The propaganda has a huge effect on what people believe about others that they aren't acquainted with. Rarely does American or European TV ever portray Muslim families as peace-loving, kind, etc.


Some people say it is mostly Muslims in the UK but it always Muslims because anyone can be a terrorist it not always Muslims because other different ethnic groups do be terrorist so there for anyone can be and it not always Muslims because anyone can go to a Muslim shop and buy one of those things that cover their face and body and everyone would think it was a Muslim did it. Refer to related question below


A radical Muslim is one who has a different view on the quran than most people. they are sometimes terrorists who view certain words in the quran as god commanding a jihad(holy war) on non Muslims. however most are just people who have some different views on the quran.


Answer 1yes many people who accepted islam he is not burn muslim after accepted islam he don't quote his family.prophet muhammad also have family member who not accepted islam bt still he was connected.Answer 2While there are certainly Muslims with non-Muslim family members, this is not the norm. Most Muslims, like most people of any faith, are born into that faith from a family that is exclusively of that faith. Non-Muslims who convert to Islam certainly retain their familial connections to their non-Muslim parents and family as far as the family is willing to take it (it ranges from apathy to high-interest to disownment). The reverse, when a Muslim converts out of Islam, is usually met with disownment by the Muslim family, but as Muslims are modernizing, some of them are taking the more pragmatic approach of incorporating the former Muslims into their lives while still disdaining their religious choices.


no Muslims won the battle of the tours! it was the franks that won. if the Muslims won than most of Germanywould be Muslim!


Not everyone who follows the Islamic faith is a terrorist. there is a passage in the Quran that many Muslims and non Muslims interpret as a command to kill all non-Muslims,however many Muslims do not believe that interpretation.


Indonesia has a larger Muslim population than any other country in world, with approximately 202.9 million identifying themselves as Muslim.


Because most Arabs ARE Muslim.Not all Arabs are Muslims, but 90% of Arabs are.The reverse, however, is not the case. Only 22% of all Muslims are Arabs.
