Islam has exported its primitive, age-old and endless Sunni vs Shiite war of religious violence around the world, expanding it with jihad, the violent conquest of non-believers. The uninformed rubbish many Western politicians and commentators spout – that the cause of terrorism is anti-Muslim Western actions – is happily harnessed by Muslims who overtly or covertly wish to see the dawn of the Caliphate. To the radicals, the peaceful majority of Muslims are irrelevant.
Yes, of the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims, the majority are peaceful, as we all recognise and repeat ad nauseam. But that has little relevance to or impact on the day to day reality of Muslim terrorism.
