I've said what I've had to say already, yet you're too arrogant to take any of it in.
You seem to take pleasure in ignorance.
You say you study the Hadith and Qur'an, what a load. You know nothing of them. You merely want a scapegoat to berate and condescend.
Religion, like anything else, is a powerful indoctrination tool. That is the real issue, uneducated people being indoctrinated by those with bad intentions.
However, people on your side of the fence are too ignorant to see it isn't the specific religion that perpetrates violence - its violent leaders that take advantage of the uneducated.
I do agree though that British Muslims, in my view, often tend to have a slightly warped perception of Islam compared to Arab ones.

Label "X" attacks label "Y" based on their own personal beliefs of a higher power.....How long has this been going on now? Can humans ever get out of this mindset, attacking others based on their belief of some higher power? Not anytime soon. Oh humans....hopefully one day our species will learn to live with one another, no matter what our own personal beliefs are
A week ago, Jonathan warned the group had infiltrated the government and security forces and vowed (again) to stamp it out. But in an interview with Reuters news agency Thursday he said that if Boko Haram identified itself and stated clear demands the government was ready for dialogue. He also acknowledged that military action alone would not stop Boko Haram; and northern Nigeria needed economic development.
But Nigeria-watchers think this apparent carrot may have come too late. Boko Haram's purported leader, Abu Bakar Shekau, responded in an audio message: "We're killing police officers, we're killing soldiers and other government people who are fighting Allah; and Christians who are killing Muslims and talking badly about our Islamic religion."
