" Better called Islamist terrorism"[edit]

Terrorism is not Islamic ,because unjust violence is not Jihad and not Islamic in principle...It is a politicized distortion of Islamic teachings, like Crusades to Christianity, and modern Zionism to Judaism .--Haywi (talk) 11:54, 18 August 2018 (UTC)

weight on scholarship by Olivier Roy[edit]

In the section Religious motivation, the information by Olivier is presented at length. There are other scholars, like Gilles Kepel we could also present. Does anyone have any suitable & publicly available sources by him? Googling in French is not my forte. AadaamS (talk) 10:08, 28 December 2017 (UTC)

islam terrorism[edit]

This is not a forum to discuss generally the topic of Islamic terrorism. ValarianB (talk) 20:59, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

Islam never support terrorism. Who doing the terror attack they didn't know what the quran says. If any one didn't trust what I'm saying just study the quran & learn what it says. Ashick78 (talk) 05:13, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

Sorry buddy, we are not fools. Do you want us to believe that the terrorsists have misunderstood Islam? They did WTC 16 years ago. and then they committed their daily bucket of three to five attacks somewhere across the globe today. Misunderstandings never last this long. In todays age, misunderstandings do not last even one day. Islam supports terrorism. Period. Mohammad was a liar about his claims of prophethood and he committed every crime that is termed as terrorism today. His followers did the same for 1400 years. I am sure it is you who hasn't read the Quran or you may have read only false pro-Islam propaganda cherry picked from the quran like killing of one man is killing of all humanity" and so forth. Do remember to read the hadith and the sira. Bye. May you see the light and quit Islam. 182.58.61.43 (talk) 20:41, 14 February 2018 (UTC)

WP:RNPOV[edit]

This article does not comply with WP:RNPOV , maybe because it is only edited by non-muslims AyaanLamar (talk) 11:49, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

If you have specific suggestions, it would be best to note that here. Putting a tag on the page and then accusing non-Islamic editors of inherent bias is probably going to earn yuou some sort of restriction or block in the long run. ValarianB (talk) 13:02, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
Better yet, please provide specific suggestions supported by WP:RS sources. AadaamS (talk) 18:46, 19 February 2018 (UTC)
Actually the religion of the editors is immaterial to the content of the article, that would be a sort of identity politics to suggest that "a certain category of editors" is required to make a good article, this is not true. What is required are WP:RS that are presented in a neutral manner. If the condition for "NPOV met" in this case is the religion of the authors, that makes the POV tag inavlid.

Requested move 10 April 2018[edit]

The following is a closed discussion of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. Editors desiring to contest the closing decision should consider a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

The result of the move request was: consensus not to move the pages as proposed at this time, per the discussion below. Dekimasuよ! 18:11, 16 April 2018 (UTC)


– The actual name seems to be "Islamism", so as a verb it seems clearer to say "Islamist", rather than "Islamic". Unreal7 (talk) 14:08, 10 April 2018 (UTC)


The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

Citizenship issues[edit]

Nothing in the first para of the Citizenship issues sub-section establishes any relationship to the phenomenon of Islamic terrorism. It's difficult for Muslims to get citizenship in affluent Muslin countries - so what? Especially as the section is called "Motivations of Islamic terrorism". Pincrete (talk) 12:07, 7 July 2018 (UTC)

Move discussion in progress[edit]

There is a move discussion in progress on Talk:Islamic terrorism in Europe (2014–present) which affects this page. Please participate on that page and not in this talk page section. Thank you. —RMCD bot 14:34, 3 October 2018 (UTC)
