Honestly, blaming Muslims for all the terrorism that happens in today's world is horribly generalizing but also spews antagonism that will only be met with further antagonism, which will only cause wars and the innocent civilians will be forced to relocate to various places where they can hope for bette life, usually in the western world as we have much more generous system to help people to get off their feet.
Also, by killing those extremists it will only cause to make the fallen to look like martyrs which will be used to recruit even more cannon fodders for the terrorists to fight a nonsensical "holy war".
And, this thread is horribly misleading as you are just assuming every modern terrorist is a muslim when we have plenty of terrorists that aren't associated to the Islam religion in any way. Look at Breivik. He killed over 77 people to get attention and spread the word about the "horrors of muslims and immigrants". Honestly, I believe the Norway government handled the aftermath it in the best manner possible. Arrested the terrorist, locked him up in prison for who-knows long and prevent him from getting much media exposure. When I was younger I believed he should have been executed for his crimes but after learning about martyrdoms and that terrorists who believe they are fighting for causes can be regarded as heroes by terrorists spreading false propaganda I came to realize we need to quench that kind of thinking as much as possible.
And so, generalizing all muslims as terrorists and is like generalizing all honey bees as hornets. It's incredible unproductive and downright incompetent thinking that benefits no one.
And to answer your question @ TridentPuff . Removing all muslims to get rid of muslim terrorists might be the absolute worst way to cleanse the world of terrorists as possible. It doesn't solve the problem why terrorism exist nor does it make anyone look in positive light and will set a horrible precedent for future generations that will risk people's lifes that are in no way associated with criminals just because they share the same religion.
Honestly this tread has gotten messy already so I wouldn't mind it getting locked or at the very least cleaned. Let's focus on general terrorism or the terrorism in France specifically so we can have a focus point and making the thread readable for people.
I vote for it cleaned instead of locked--this thread would make a good place to break all taboos concerning discussion of Islam and the Qur'an as well elucidate more on what links acts of terrorism to Islam and Muslims.
