Yes we will see them and they are justified.
Yes we will see them but they will not be justified.
No we will not see them but they would have been justified.

The information on the nature of Militant Islam is freely available. The serious student is advised to begin with a study of the Koran, Hadith and current popular movements in Traditional Islamic regimes, and to set aside the comfortable, and objectionable modern tendency amongst the fearful to invent imaginary evils instead of confronting actual ones.
Courage is essential to survival in a hostile world, after all. A few moments of honest reflection will reveal the wisdom of this fact to all but the most intransigently timid.
A Perusal of the history of Islamic conquest is from the Middle Ages forward is also not to be neglected.
We live at a time when emotions and feelings count more than truth, and there is a vast ignorance of science.
The evidence is as I took pains to express, readily available and indeed it is up to you to avail yourself of the painfully abundant data.
Since you lump all religions together, you have made it clear that you are not yet ready to employ serious consideration of these issues. Perhaps some later maturity will incline you towards a study of the differences between for instance, Protestantism, which is generally not involved with decapitating hostages, and Militant Islam, which is.
I understand, we all have things that are fearful to face.
The course of wisdom though, is to allow the more courageous, and informed to deal with the more painful and difficult issues that civilization faces.
Please feel free to comment when you have addressed certain obvious and prominent vacuities in your awareness, where these issues are concerned.
