Stop interfering and invading sovereign nations and terrorism will go away. It's blowback pure and simple

A vast majority of people killed by terrorists are Muslim. Who should they stop invading?

Yes, Sweden should stop invading countries and propping up dictators.

Not when it involves radical Jihadism. I don't recall Spain or Germany doing any invading recently or even the Philippines for that matter. That is a total ruse.

The roots of modern day Islamic extremism are very tangled. There's all kinds of factors at work and grievances being played out.

Flashpoints would be events like the creation of the state of Israel and the marginalisation of Palestine. The Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. The invasion of Iraq. These events helped enable the rage felt by extremists and sinister forces. But the causes are legion and I suspect; the solutions are complicated.

There are millions of peaceful Muslims across the globe. ISIS, Al Qaeda, Boko Haram, Al Shabaab and all the other death cults out there do not represent the ordinary person. No more than ETA represents the Basque people or the IRA dissidents represent the Irish people.

But it's a many stranded web that's been woven over the decades.

And human nature being what it is; dialogue and compromise can sometimes be seen as a surrender.

This is why the cycle of violence will be perpetuated throughout human history. Because fighting and lashing out at innocent people (in any conflict) has always been the way.

How to stop violence? More violence? And so on...

Radical jihadism? Would that be different to say, moderate jihadism or reformed jihadism?

I'm sure the honorable colleague will be back to explain subtle differences that we may have missed. After that in depth expose of nazis and their various levels of white supremacism...

People die from violence every minute of the day around the globe. You should be more specific.

Jihad doesn't mean what you think it means. It is usually used as a religious quest/struggle/effort, though the non-Islamic media has pushed the meaning as "religious fight." Most of the time, it means trying to better understand Islam - in the same way that Christians might attend Bible School to learn more about their religion.

Vehicle deaths happen everywhere on the globe, usually from accident. Put up some big flower planters with local plants and forgetaboutit. There is also a reason that huge buildings have non-trivial stairs leading up to their entrance if the road is straight into it. If we mix the stairs, planters, and side entrances, that leaves fewer soft points to be targets.

Agree with theFu, Jihad is about internal struggle overcoming adversity within onesself.

But alas like so many other words regardless if Creed, Culture, etc have become twisted or outright banned.

@the fu and pacint

Yes, we know the different interpretations of 'jihad'.

Are Muslims engaging in an internal struggle described as 'jihadists' in common discourse?
