    Guess it would be news to the Muslims on this cricket forum that they hate Western culture.

    Again, this is all blame shifting.

    You're seeing something which is the result of a multitude of factors in a binary. Economic turmoil, power imbalance and instability are causes which explain (not excuse) terrorism. Of course ideology is part of it too.

    He said “Islam preaches x”, not “all muslims x”.

    Still incorrect imo but there’s a big difference.

    Claiming that Islam as an entire religion hates Western culture implies Muslims should follow and believe it. It's dumb and has the same implications as "religion not race".

    I agree there are multiple factors at play here, but IMO the blame should be squared at the Islamic institutions that fuel dissatisfaction and validate it through religious rhetoric

    That's a big leap tbh. Should in the puritanical sender is not the same as do. I mean, saying Islam hates the West just doesn't make sense as a statement considering how Islam came into being but yeah.

    But people are more susceptible to that sort of thing when the other factors intensify.

    Sure, but my original post was in reply to GIMH suggesting that Western foreign policy is a direct cause of Islamic terrorism
