The most recent attack, Paris, was not motivated by western intervention in the middle east but by a cartoon. Western intervention in the middle east is part of it but I think there is more to it, western support of Israel, Israel vs palestine, Arab Israeli wars, Islamic states and Islamic extremism will automatically be opposed to many other systems and countries due to their ideology and more. There are a lot of factors. Also different culture, values, ideology, religion, system of government to western countries and muslim immigration to the west and failure to fit in or assimilate in a foreign culture and country. Then there is the religion itself of Islam which at it's core has an element of extremism which opposes all other systems of religion or government and the goal to create Islamic states with Islamic laws governed by the Quran.
why do they (islamic terrorists) hate us (u.s. and the west) and what do we do about it?
