Extreme circumstances will breed extreme action. The breeding grounds for these extreme groups are the large populations of these generally low
standard of living middle east nations. Those who dislike the west typically do due to the percieved (often very real) injustices, abuses and
misdealings that have happened (and continue to happen). It just so happens that the populations of these nations mostly follow Islam. It is foolhardy
to suggest that if they weren't muslims that the hatred and distrust of the west would not exist. There are plenty of laws in the Bible that could be
just as easily subverted to mean that its fine to kill whatever westerner they might like.
That is exactly the problem with the sweeping childish generalisations that politicians like to throw around today to save explaining things to those
who are disinterested in the world outside their own borders. People are happy to just go with 'oh they hate us because they are muslim' rather than
looking into the more important core reasons behind the hate.
First of all Muslims when rasised automatically despise christians and jews.
.51: O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a
friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.
9.123: O you who believe! fight those of the unbelievers who are near to you and let them find in you hardness; and know that Allah is with those who
guard (against evil).
4.89 : They desire that you should disbelieve as they have disbelieved, so that you might be (all) alike; therefore take not from among them friends
until they fly (their homes) in Allah's way; but if they turn back, then seize them and kill them wherever you find them, and take not from among
them a friend or a helper.
8.12: When your Lord revealed to the angels: I am with you, therefore make firm those who believe. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who
disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them.
Beaheading teaching last seen in 2004.
Smite the neck of unbelievers
47.4: So when you meet in battle those who disbelieve, then smite the necks until when you have overcome them, then make (them) prisoners, and
afterwards either set them free as a favor or let them ransom (themselves) until the war terminates. That (shall be so); and if Allah had pleased He
would certainly have exacted what is due from them, but that He may try some of you by means of others; and (as for) those who are slain in the way of
Allah, He will by no means allow their deeds to perish.
Kidnapping teachings, kidnapping until you get your demands.
So in this case we are seen as a low class of people that are depised by islam. As soon as they become muslims there is already distrust, dislike of
christians and jews because islam says it. So this poverty, low class problem is not the real cause. They are born to depise the rest of the world.
Just look at the above verus.
Imagine i was to attend church since i was 6 and the priest saying and take not muslims as your friends for like 20 years. Do you think i will be
really friends with muslims after that? It's brain washing.
Then have more war like teachings and create war for the cause for 20 years? don't you think the straw will come out of the ground after watering it
for 20 years?
I think it explains the mentality of these islamic radicals. Luckly most muslims are mooderate and choose to ignore most of these teachings.
