Acc. to me, it started due to political reasons and religious misintepretation. What they call 'Jehad', is actually meant something else in Holy Quran. Jehad meant two things; defend own countrymen and land against the attackers, secondly, it means the inner fight with the mind. But the jehad started with some reason. Western dictatorship on countries like Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq etc. The US didnt need to interfere in the affairs of Iraq, as nobody interferes in theirs. They killed Saddam, made fool of Iraqis, showing them how good they did for the Iraqis by killing Saddam. But all they wanted was Oil. The CIA created Taliban. US wanted to exploit the middle-east in the greed of oil. Millions of people have been killed by American army in Afghanistan and Iraq, after 9/11. I think when someone occupies your country, kills your people, some kinda retaliation does occur.
There is a small segment of the Islamic religion that is extremely fundamentalist and support terrorism. There is also a small violent, fundamentalist segment in most religiions. The majority of Muslims are peaceful and tollerant of others, but this group is unwilliing to accept the existance of any other religion on earth. They do not want freedom, except for the leaders, and their stated aim is to destroy anyone who is not of their faith and practice it as they do. There can be no peace with these radicals, and the only way to stop terrorism is to eliminate them. Our destruction is their business. Everyone must understand that these are not rational civilized human beings, but are vicious beasts and the only remedy is to lock them up or kill them.
I am not aligning or advocating terrorism so don’t put me in jail without due process. I am a peacenik. I do however keep my peepers open wide and listen carefully so I know what the terrorists want. They want their FREEDOM is that wrong? Their stated aim that no one listens to is that they want western influences such as the CIA and their corporate buddies to keep out of Islamic countries. They want the west to mind their own business but nooo the capitalist western corporations are bent on oppressing not only the oil rich Muslim countries but everyone including their own people. Terrorist acts are wrong but one can surmise they are done for economic reasons, no war budget. If the western capitalist factions didn’t align with the Middle East homeland oppressors and direct the money away from the poor perhaps they could meet us on the battlefield and fight for their freedom. The answer to stop terrorism is to MIND YOUR OWN BUISSNESS.

I believe the root of the problem is the colonialism of the western world in the arabic region in the last 100 Years. First the french and britain interests in the region before and during the WW1, later the birth of the state israel at the same time area as the arabic region get a very important place in the cold war. And last but not least the interest of oil. So the population of the arabic region had never a solid situation or any kind of peace, so the possibility to mislead some people with a solution like terror isn't a surprise for me... I see no easy solution for all the conflicts in the far east.... But if the normal people can't live a normal life, I'm afraid terror won't stop....
