Are you suggesting that the religion of Islam isn't teaching hate and radicalizing these youth? I can see your point on a small scale, but I don't believe that the broader problem isn't directly related to radical Islam.
Actually I find it interesting that we do agree as much as we do while at the same time appear to be in what some would consider completely opposite camps. One of the things I like about some of your threads is that they do present indications of a self-developing mind. Wrong half the time but wrong of your own individual struggle to come to grips with this confusing world. I myself would be happy to be wrong only fifty percent of the time.

Iraqi Shi'ite cleric tells followers to target U.S. troops fighting Islamic State
(Reuters) - Powerful Shi'ite Muslim cleric Moqtada al-Sadr instructed his followers on Sunday to target U.S. troops deploying to Iraq as part of the military campaign against Islamic State.
U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter said on Monday the Pentagon would dispatch 560 additional troops to help Iraqi forces retake the northern city of Mosul in an offensive planned for later this year.
Sadr, who rose to prominence when his Mahdi Army battled U.S. troops after the 2003 invasion, posted the comments on his official website after a follower asked for his response to the announcement.
"They are a target for us," Sadr said, without offering details.
The Mahdi Army was disbanded in 2008, replaced by the Peace Brigades, which helped push back Islamic State from near Baghdad in 2014 under a government-run umbrella, and maintains a presence in the capital and several other cities.
