Yes, it is one of the main duties of all muslims to convert unbelievers to islam.
I thought they did that with suicide bombers and YouTube videos?

There is also the proselytizing you may not recognize as such. If you see a billboard that advertises Islam and invites you to come get answers or hear a radio spot that has done the same, you have been called to Islam. Under the loosest udnerstandings of the faith, you have been asked to convert and have refused if you did not go. That makes you a fair target.
If you listen to the terrorist propaganda messages to the US and other countries, over and over they call people to submit and accept Islam. Again, they are basically proselytizing, and we have all been called to Islam through those tapes and messages time and time again. By the rules, they can attack us with impunity for refusing to convert.
That is extremist theology.
