Imagine that John Q. Nutjob hates Islam because he thinks that Muslim countries are responsible for terrible things that have been done to America. He goes out and blows up a mosque. Would you say that "Islam's attacks on America" were the reason for his actions? Of course not.
Yet when Abdul Q. Nutjob goes out and blows up a building because he thinks America is responsible for terrible things that have been done to Islamic countries, you point to those political incidents and say "if those aren't the reasons behind terrorism, then nothing is."
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
I am not going to lie and say Islam plays no role whatsoever in perhaps helping recruitment for some like Al Qaeda or justification for their actions for those like the Taliban but it doesn't matter how remote one goes, politics is weaved into it and 9/10. The politics will include a Muslim country which has some sort of problem.
Saying that, politics is not and never will be justifiable reason to kill innocent people. Those terrorists are murderers and they will go to hell for the murders they do. I just acknowledge that politics has a role in it.
That does not mean I am shifting blame from anyone but those responsible.

Come on folks, isn't it obvious, all and every muslim is wonderful and peace loving. Its all OUR fault that some of them forget that at times. If we just do every single solitary thing the radical...err, I mean, peace loving but pushed to the edge by those evil westerners....muslims want then there wouldn't be any more terrorism. Why can't you all understand that its so simple!? Just stop supporting Israel, legitimize Hamas, act like the Middle East is a wonderful utopia that can never have any affect on the outside world so should be completely ignored, and be sure to flick off any allies that they dislike before you boot them over the cliff. Just follow those simple steps and us foolish westerners would stop forcing the rad-...there I go again...segment of peace loving muslims pushed to the edge and made temporarily insane by the evil and vileness of the rest and we'll all be happy and wonderful and rainbows!

"I am appalled that somebody who is the nominee...would take that kind of position"
"A court took away a presidency"
"...the brother of a man running for president was the governor of the state..."
It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
