Is it interesting the despite Sahabi's explanation (much appreciated), there has not been a response from another Muslim member?
Would a Muslim shy away from a thread like this?
I agree with the OP - I would really appreciate their take on all this, one of my critisisms with the last 12 years of 'anti muslim' feeling in some of us is the lack of Muslim wholescale rejection of terrorism in the name of Allah and a fair and open response to help educate us.
All we have without their balanced input is the media hype.

When I used to be a Muslim, I followed the Salafi (Wahabi) school of thought. ,
.... but now that I am a non-Muslim,
I personally believe the Sufis and other mystics to be the wisest Islamic school of thought.

They still do .. take a look at Bahrain .. Malaysia and Indonesia .. Islamic countries that are tolerant . encourage learning and growth .. all three also are actively educating their people against extremism and militancy .. they arrest militants .. there have been arrests of IS recruiters .. financers .. and fighters .. but your western media wont tell you that because it goes against the propaganda that western governments and media have been feeding you people for years..
Women are also allowed to get educations .. work .. treated fairly ..
And now I return you all to your force fed narrowminded .. hateful.. propaganda fueled .. government sanctioned view of the world ..
Apologies Homer get rather fed up with people who have never actually been somewhere and lived among the people spouting the same old tired hate filled ignorant government propaganda ..
