... still 90% of terrorists are muslims.
You made this statistic up on the spot. It's also wildly incorrect. Funny how a completely unsubstantiated (and completely unrealistic) statistic like this got so many stars and not questions demanding proof of your claims

. The punishment for those who fight God and His Messenger, and strive to spread corruption on earth, is that they be killed, or crucified, or have their hands and feet cut off on opposite sides, or be banished from the land. That is to disgrace them in this life; and in the Hereafter they will have a terrible punishment.
How can a person go about, ruthlessly shooting and taking the lives of innocent people, claiming to be a part of an Islamic Group? Just because they take the name of God, doesn't really mean they believe in Him. They certainly do not believe in a religion which means "Peace". If your religion defies and prevents you from murdering and assassinating, then how can you assert and testify that you are a Muslim?
Allah mentions in the Qur'an
"... whoever kills a soul unless for a soul or for corruption [done] in the land - it is as if he had slain mankind entirely. And whoever saves one - it is as if he had saved mankind entirely.
(Surah Al-Maida Chapter 5 verse 32)

According to an ICM Research poll in 2006, 20% of British Muslims felt sympathy with the July 7 terrorist bombers' "feelings and motives", although 99 per cent thought the bombers were wrong to carry out the atrocity. In another poll by NOP Research, almost one in four British Muslims believe that the 7/7 attacks on London were justified. In a Pew Research study from 2006, at least 1 in 4 respondents in the Muslim nations surveyed, except Turkey, had at least some confidence in Bin Laden. Confidence in Bin Laden was 16% or less among Muslims in the four European nations surveyed. In a 2007 Pew Research poll in response to a question on whether suicide bombing and other forms of violence against civilian targets to defend Islam could be justified, in Europe: 64% of Muslims in France believed it could never be justified, 19% believed it could be justified rarely, 10% sometimes, and 6% thought it could be justified often. 70% of Muslims in Britain believed it could never be justified, 9% believed it could be justified rarely, 12% sometimes, and 3% thought it could be justified often. 83% of Muslims in Germany believed it could never be justified, 6% believed it could be justified rarely, 6% sometimes, and 1% thought it could be justified often. 69% of Muslims in Spain believed it could never be justified, 9% believed it could be justified rarely, 10% sometimes, and 6% thought it could be justified often. In mainly Muslim countries: 45% of Muslims in Egypt believed it could never be justified, 25% believed it could be justified rarely, 20% sometimes, and 8% thought it could be justified often. 61% of Muslims in Turkey believed it could never be justified, 9% believed it could be justified rarely, 14% sometimes, and 3% thought it could be justified often. 43% of Muslims in Jordan believed it could never be justified, 28% believed it could be justified rarely, 24% sometimes, and 5% thought it could be justified often. 28% of Muslims in Nigeria believed it could never be justified, 23% believed it could be justified rarely, 38% sometimes, and 8% thought it could be justified often. 69% of Muslims in Pakistan believed it could never be justified, 8% believed it could be justified rarely, 7% sometimes, and 7% thought it could be justified often. 71% of Muslims in Indonesia believed it could never be justified, 18% believed it could be justified rarely, 8% sometimes, and 2% thought it could be justified often. John Esposito, using poll data from Gallup, wrote in 2008 that Muslims and Americans were equally likely to reject violence against civilians. He also found that those Muslims who support violence against civilians are no more religious than Muslims who do not. A 2010 Zogby poll reported that 69% of American Muslims supported stronger laws to fight terrorism. A 2013 Pew Research Center poll asked Muslims around the world whether attacks on civilians were justified. Globally 72% of Muslims said violence against civilians is never justified, and in the US, 81% of Muslims opposed such violence. About 14% of Muslims in the nations surveyed (and 8% of Muslims in the US) said violence against civilians is "often" or "sometimes" justified. 26% of Muslims in Bangladesh believe attacks are either somewhat justified or often justified, 18% in Malaysia, 7% in Iraq, 15% in Jordan, 29% in Egypt, 39% in Afghanistan and 40% in the Palestinian territories. The survey did not include some Muslim nations, such as Iran, Saudi Arabia, Algeria, Yemen, Syria, and Libya, but did include densely populated Muslim countries such as Pakistan, Turkey, Egypt, Nigeria and Indonesia. According to a 2007 poll conducted by the PolicyExchange think tank in Britain, nearly 60% said they would prefer to live under British law, while 37% of 16- to 24-year-olds said they would prefer sharia law, against 17% of those over 55. Also, 36% of 16- to 24-year-olds British Muslims believed that those converting to another religion should be executed. Less than a fifth of those over 55 think so.
''Less Than 2 Percent Of Terrorist Attacks In The E.U. Are Religiously Motivated ''
By the way, can you tell me the difference between a Muslim terrorist who is religiously motivated and one that is politically motivated and just happens to be Muslim?

Terrorism always existed but in much smaller ''forms'', it never had such massive consequences in society before,
Terrorism never before consisted of such vast organized numbers of violent delusional people confusing superstitions with reality.
So what? and what exactly do they consider as ''Religiously Motivated''?
Furthermore muslim terrorism had more victims than all other 98% political terrorist attacks combined !!!
So that number doesn't prove anything.
Yes one being Muslim have no regrets blowing up, since they go to their virgins afterwards.
Since they don't give a damn about earthy-lives, and their delusional fanaticism has remained the same since the dark ages, they are far more dangerous than any other terrorist group.
Trying to downplay the pain caused by their actions, or advocate the apologists of Islam is not progressive but rather self catastrophic.
We believe in freedom of Speech, freedom of expression, equality, justice and liberty,
All muslims in EU have to respect the above even if, it's in contrast with their religion,
otherwise their dark age traditions and mistreatment of women, are not welcome here.
The muslim in the op should just pray or give respect to the victims just like everyone else
not disrespectfully messing with the feelings of the mourners, seeking for media attention.
It's like a neonazi giving hugs to holocaust mourners saying ''not all nazis killed jews''
He is flip-flopping the situation..., presenting muslims as the real victims again...
Trying to defend the believers of the same religious insanity that provoked the terrorists
It is at least disrespectful, for the victims killed in the name of this mass insanity.
After all it was their ''barbaric'' religious ideas and traditions that made their societies miserable in the first place.

Christianity and Islam are both guilty of similar things. They are both an issue, both a problem. That said, Islam is proving to be a bigger threat when it comes to how it's currently manifested. At least, when it concerns violence. That isn't to say Christianity no longer contributes to that.

In order to identify terrorist we must look to the facts of the past attacks. You look for commonalities and traits that the terrorist have and when you find one trait that the majority of the terrorist have then you use that to profile the public and identify the terrorist.
Is there a better way to catch them bad guys?
