In their own words: Western Islamic Terrorists explain their motivation to kill

Islamic terrorists all over the world have one thing in common. They all credit their motivation to their religion.

[…] Islam isn’t hijacked by extremists – it is what inspires them.  This distinguishes Islamic terrorism from criminal activity, and it is part of what makes Islam so very, very different from other religions.

Many people prefer to bury their heads in the sand or look for ways to re-cast Islamic terror to fit their own political agenda.  However, Muslims behind the violence are quite explicit about the religious certainty that compels their actions.

We are often told by the MSM and politicians that Islam has nothing to do with terrorism. The below Islamic terrorists who all committed or plotted to commit terrorist acts inside Western countries disagree. Their quoted words make the motivation for their terror attacks on we Kafirs very clear.
