If you want to ask a Muslim any specific question, feel free to U2U me your questions.
You can attribute many of the terrorist organization in Islam today due to outside forces destroying their cultural, political, and territory
This occurs by invading countries and killing the Islamic country's goverment power figures, trying to convert them into the invading country's type
of goverment, and then kill off any groups resisting the invasion by making them the enemy. As what was done when the CIA helped put Saddam into power
and kill off any of his political opponents.
The Taliban on the other hand is a special case. Russia attempted to invade and convert Afghanistan into a communist state, but the US hired, paid,
trained, and armed groups to oppose Russia's invasion. These groups were originally known as Mujaheddins. After Russia was defeated, the US goverment
broke all ties with the Mujaheddins, which caused the Mujaheddins to break off into two forces. One of those forces became the Taliban, and the
members sought revenge on the US for abandoning them and using them as tools to fight a proxy war.
The Taliban were already armed with the most sophisticated weaponry (by Afghan standards, at the time), which kept any major Afghan influence from
opposing their take-over of Afghanistan. This is when Afghanistan came into Taliban rule and the Afghans were enslaved and oppressed by the
The other group of Mujaheddins became the Northern Alliance, which were opposed to the Taliban, and wanted to get the Afghanistan back in the hands of
Afghanis. Their leader was assassinated a few years before the US invaded Afghanistan to kill the group they created.
