    I’ve said it before but I think ISIS are the biggest threat to global security since the Nazis. All these extremist believe they’re killing the enemies of Allah and committing Jihad against non-believers but to what ends? Do they really believe they’re going to convert believers by random acts of violence against innocent people? Like I say, in their eyes their victims are sinners but seriously there must be a better way of promoting their religion than with suicide bombers and mass shootings? Their ultimate goal is to create a Muslim kingdom in the world with sharia law but in truth all its doing is leading to an increase in hate crimes, where certain people are no longer distinguishing between fanatical and peaceful Muslims. All their Jihad does is make the world less stable and make, atheists , Christians and such hate all Muslims and that must be counterproductive to their goals.

    I also wonder about these fanatics too. Most of them seem to come from pretty humble back grounds. I feel they’re stuck in dead end jobs and are frustrated by their everyday life and the lives of who they see as sinners. So they start to hate the West and see that they can do this great thing for their God by committing Jihad and suddenly they matter! Their life has this great significance and they have the chance to die for what they believe in!!

    I used to be pretty radical myself and I realised after some time most of my problems were personal and I was dressing them up with my politics to disguise my own frustrations and failings. It’s been said, a young man wants to die for a cause while an old man wants to live humbly for one.

    Lastly I really don’t get why IF promiscuous sex is a sin on Earth why it’s oks to have 72 virgins in heaven???

    A lot of these people might not have problems with the West if American soldiers didn't come into their home country and kill innocent people that were just in the way.The way the US treated human lives as collateral damage is what led many of these people to extremism. Some of the first hand accounts I've heard are deplorable.

    That last sentence you have there is something.

    Mark Henry, my friend, how on earth do you blame the US for ISIS religious ideology? After all, their ideology is what drives them to continue to slaughter. You should remove yourself as a moderator for such a stupid answer.

    I take it you've never researched the American influence in the middle east, the Afghan mujahideen or the destructive aftermath of invasion?

    Why, it's as if you forgot that the US themselves gave money to the Sons of Iraq, from which ISIS spawned out of.

    Now some nutter loyal to ISIS has stabbed a priest. You can't really see this as a movement with a set agenda. It's not an organisation in the same way as Al-Qaida, it's just a series of disaffected idiots unhappy with their place in life latching onto a vague template of Islamic "Jihad". I feel most of these arseholes have parents who made something of their lives in a new country and when they don't amount to the same level of success so they latch onto this vague cause to create a Islamic World and try to take their life’s mean something.

    I'll tell you what though, no amount of stabbings, bombings or shootings are going to strengthen their cause! All it's going to do is alienate people against all Muslims even those practicing peaceful religious lives.
