    Islamic terrorism is terrorist acts committed by groups or individuals who profess Islamic or Islamist motivations or goals. Islamic terrorists justify their violent tactics through interpreting the Quran and Hadith according to their own goals and intentions.

    The highest numbers of incidents and fatalities caused by Islamic terrorism occur in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Syria.[4] In recent decades, such incidents have occurred on a global scale, affecting not only Muslim-majority states in Africa and Asia, but also Europe, Russia, and the United States. Such attacks have targeted Muslims and non-Muslims.In a number of the worst-affected Muslim-majority regions, these terrorists have been met by armed, independent resistance groups, state actors and their proxies, and politically liberal Muslim protesters.

    Although the literal existence of Islamic terrorism is not disputed, some have criticized what they perceive to be the blanket usage of the term. Such use in Western political speech has variously been called "counter-productive," "unhelpful," "highly politicized, intellectually contestable" and "damaging to community relations.This view, in turn, has been criticized by those who perceive it to be an act of evasion.

      It is up to Islam to show us the difference between them and the Islamic Terrorists.

    1. Because 95% of all terrorist attacks around the world are committed by Muslims, whether against the West or other Muslims. Sunni and Shia blowing up car bombs in front of each others' mosques for example, prove that even in all Muslim societies, Islam is violent. And both Sunni and Shia kill more moderate strains of Islam like Almadiya and Sufi.
    2. 90% of all honor killings are done by Muslims, despite being less than a third of the world population. When women are routinely murdered by relatives for not conforming to Islam's oppressive religious mandates for women, like trying to choose their own husband or not wanting to veil, we shouldn't be surprised when the same religious people kill non-believers.
    3. When Muslims commit terrorism, the majority response of Muslims is "they aren't really Muslim" even as the terrorists praise Allah and quote the Koran. Or they say "don't look at me with fear, you evil bigot". But they are NOT turning in the terrorists plotting, with a quarter of Muslims in the West admitting they wouldn't turn in terrorists. More than half say that Shariah law should be imposed in the West, regardless of the traditions or will of the local people.
    This means a majority of Muslims either actively support the terrorism or are too afraid of their neighbors to act. When your neighbors either actively support through fundraising and endorsement or tacitly support it through silence, yes, the entire group can be seen as culpable.
