Have you noticed that most of these so-called Islamist terrorist attacks take place in non-Muslim societies that largely follow the rule of law?
Dare they commit such religious extremism in North Korea, China and Russia, for instance? Indeed, dare they denounce, in a political context, the king of Saudi Arabia and many of those sheikhdoms?
If they conducted such barbarism in anarchist and dictatorial societies, the reprisals against general Muslims would be unthinkable. Hence they choose the softer targets in functioning democracies - taking advantage of their rule of law and civility. What an additional shame! These societies played host to them, offered their hospitality and often refuge from their own dictators.
Beware, the more condescending Muslims endorse these killings the more conscientious Muslims will distance from Islam.
