Thank you SFAli! I was hit in the stomach again by this utterly senseless, cruel and haram action by yet another misled victim of his own history and his totally perverted idea of Islam. IS is a perversion of Islam. But who caused the rise of IS?

I was also hit in the stomach by yet another hypocrite action of the President of the USA. Nobody talks about the number of killings of Muslims -mostly Shiite- as a consequence of selling US weapons to the Saudi-Arabic regime.

There is no excuse for the killing in Manchester. But the real question is: who and what causes terrorism? Who and what causes the transformation of young men (and women) with Muslim ancestors into murderers, insulting their God and their religion?

Indications of the causes are exclusion and discrimination of non-white, non-Christian immigrants in Western countries and warfare in the Middle East for geopolitical and militaristic reasons. Another cause is total lack of knowledge and comprehension of Muslims and Islam.
