Islamic terrorism is a form of terrorism by those whose motivations are rooted in extremist interpretations of Islam. Over 25% of terror-related attacks of violence in 2007 were caused by those self-identifying as "Islamic", according to the United States Government. Islamic terrorists use verses from the Qur'an to justify their actions (see below). Islamic terrorism is imprinted strongly anti-American and anti-Zionist.
The mainstream media frequently fails to call Islamic terrorism what it is.
The Roots of Terror
According to the National Counterterrorism Center, the Islamic State of Iraq (aka al-Qa’ida in Iraq), more than any other subnational group, claimed they conducted attacks with the highest casualty totals.
Qur'an Verses that endorse terrorism
- [2:191]: "And kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah is worse than killing."
- [8:55]: "Indeed, the worst of living creatures in the sight of Allah are those who have disbelieved, and they will not [ever] believe "
- [47:4]: "So when you meet those who disbelieve [in battle], strike [their] necks until, when you have inflicted slaughter upon them, then secure their bonds, and either [confer] favor afterwards or ransom [them] until the war lays down its burdens. That [is the command]. And if Allah had willed, He could have taken vengeance upon them [Himself], but [He ordered armed struggle] to test some of you by means of others. And those who are killed in the cause of Allah - never will He waste their deeds."
The best known Islamic terror organization is Al-Qaeda, or "the base". It was founded by Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri in Afghanistan during the 1980s. There are, however, numerous other terror groups including Islamic Jihad, Hamas and the Shia Hezbollah. The Islamic State is seen as the most brutal organization, even al-Qaeda distances from it.
Islamic terrorism in the United Kingdom

The United States website Homeland Security Digital Library published the article Islamist Terrorism in the UK: An In-Depth Analysis:
|“|| On March 7th the Henry Jackson Society, a British think tank, released a report titled, Islamist Terrorism: Analysis of Offenses and Attacks in the UK (1998-2015). As stated by author Hannah Stuart, the purpose of the report is to provide “information and statistical analysis on the manifestation and development of the threat to national security from Islamism-inspired terrorism.” According to the report, there have been 264 convictions of Islamism-inspired terrorism in the UK as a result of arrests made between 1998 and 2015. Interestingly, 72% of these Islamism-related offences (IROs) were committed by UK nationals or individuals holding dual British nationality, with the overwhelming majority being perpetrated by males. However, although their numbers remain small, female involvement in Islamism-inspired terrorism has tripled since 2011, with women accounting for 11% of all IROs occurring between 2011 and 2015. This represents a 175% increase from IROs occurring between 1998 and 2010 involving women.
The report goes on to discuss contemporary developments in terrorism, highlighting that “the expansion of the terrorism threat from that predominantly associated with AQ [al-Qaeda]-linked groups to one driven by IS [Islamic State] has been the key development since the publication of the previous edition of this report in 2011.” As such, the author concludes that terrorism inspired by the Islamic State currently represents the greatest threat to the UK’s national security. A brief overview of AQ is offered, which discusses the evolution of the terrorist group, including the creation and expansion of AQ franchises. Knowledge of this history is necessary to better understand both current trends in Jihadist-inspired terror attacks and the rise of the Islamic State.
Dr. Peter Hammond's article What Islam Isn't indicates:
|“|| When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions ( Paris --car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam - Mohammed cartoons).
After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning: Ethiopia -- Muslim 32.8%
Manchester Arena bombing
See also: Manchester Arena bombing
On May 22, 2017, an Islamist extremist suicide bomber detonated a shrapnel-laden bomb as concert goers were leaving Manchester Arena in England following a performance by the libertine, American singer Ariana Grande. The bomber was Salman Ramadan Abedi. His brother Hashem Abedi was later found guilty of 22 counts of murder relative to the bombing.
Twenty-three people were killed - including the bomber. And more than 1,000 were wounded.
A local community worker told the BBC that he had called a police hotline five years before the bombing to warn authorities about Abedi's radical Islamic views. In addition, members of Britain's Libyan diaspora indicated that they had "warned authorities for years" about Manchester's Islamist radicalisation. However, in post-Christian Britain, the government does not have the morals or courage to confront Muslim extremism (see also: Atheism and morality and Atheism and cowardice and UK and secularism).
Britain's globalist/multiculturist experiment with Muslim immigration caused the July 2005 London Bombings and the Manchester Arena Bombing. In 2017, there were three Muslim terrorist attacks (2017 London Bridge attack, Parsons Green train bombing and the 2017 Westminster attack).
According to Dr. Peter Hammond, as the Muslim population increases in a non-Islamic country, the violence and terrorist attacks increase (see: What Islam Isn't - Dr. Peter Hammond). It would take a rechristianization of Britain in order for the Islamic terrorism situation to be turned around in the UK. In the 21st century, Europe will experience desecularization (see: European desecularization in the 21st century).
