Islamic Theology, not Western Policy cause of terrorism

Commentary: "I remember how we used to laugh in celebration whenever people on TV proclaimed that the sole cause for Islamic acts of terror like 9/11, the Madrid bombings and 7/7 was Western foreign policy.

By blaming the Government for our actions, those who pushed this "Blair's bombs" line did our propaganda work for us.
And though many British extremists are angered by the deaths of fellow Muslim across the world, what drove me and many others to plot acts of extreme terror within Britain and abroad was a sense that we were fighting for the creation of a revolutionary worldwide Islamic state that would dispense Islamic justice.

If we were interested in justice, you may ask, how did this continuing violence come to be the means of promoting such a (flawed) Utopian goal? How do Islamic radicals justify such terror in the name of their religion?

There isn't enough room to outline everything here, but the foundation of extremist reasoning rests upon a model of the world in which you are either a believer or an infidel.

Formal Islamic theology, unlike Christian theology, does not allow for the separation of state and religion: they are considered to be one and the same.

... since Islam must declare war on unbelief, they have declared war upon the whole world.

Along with many of my former peers, I was taught by Pakistani and British radical preachers that this reclassification of the globe as a Land of War (Dar ul-Harb) allows any Muslim to destroy the sanctity of the five rights that every human is granted under Islam: life, wealth, land, mind and belief.

In Dar ul-Harb, anything goes, including the treachery and cowardice of attacking civilians.""

Like most conservatives have said for years, the muslim terrorists hate us because of their relgion, their twisted view of how a people should be governed, and a warped sense of justice. They hate because there system is far inferior, as evidenced by the vast socio-economic differences of our systems.
Our system generates wealth, fosters happiness, and equal justice.
Their system oppresses the vast majority for the splendid wealth of a few autocrats.

And so they hate because the ones with the wealth, and the religion, tell them to. And once you live with a hatred like that, it consumes you. (See man on fire above, fighting police.)

How do we win?

by invading their counties, killing their men, and breeding out their women to christian men.
