    Today London, tomorrow Paris, Rome, Berlin...you name it. Terrorism has become a serious threat.

    What can we do?

    First read this speech from Haim Harari http://www.worldthreats.com/middle_east/Haim Harari.htm
    Sorry this site is down at the moment, perhaps well have to wait for a while.

    Be willing to get involved. When one of the suspects was running from the subway and people were yelling to stop that person, very few were willing to get involved (from what I understand). As long as everyone has the attitude of "it's not my problem", it will be very easy for the bad guys to get away with things like this. It's everyone's problem and we all need to take responsibility for our surroundings. Government will never be able to protect each and every person every minute of every day. We have to take responsibilty to protect ourselves and each other.

    I agree, except some of the laws prevent us from getting involved fully.

    I think the time will come where people will get so angry against Islam, so that a war can't be avoided.

    The vast, vast majority aren't terrorists so people that "get angry at Islam" are just stupid.

    I understand what you're saying, and it's very easy to lump them all together, but we should not. The extremists have perverted islam. The problem is that the rest of islam is not doing much to keep itself from being perverted and percieved poorly by others.

    And making it a "war against Islam" only further hurts the cause

    problem are the extremists. A bigger problem is the non-extremist muslims won't deal with the extremists, so it almost encourages them to go blow stuff up. In the end, it almost has to be dealt with and eliminated within the community itself.

    Do you believe that the vast majority is clever enough?

    Maybe yes, as long as they aren't directly affected by terror.

    I honestly don't know what you are getting at so its problably best I don't participate in this thread. It seems to me you are suggesting something that I think is downright wrong.

    Again, I may be misinterpreting your whole point so I will leave it at that

    Terror[ism] can't be stopped, but it can be managed. It can be dealt with, we can discourage it, but we can't stop it completely any more than we can end violence for other purposes.

    And that would be a shame because for millions of true muslims terrorism is anathma and totally against everything they believe in. Jihad is not a holy war but an inner struggle to find their God.

    Not that I am a muslim or anything else for that matter. I believe religions of all types have brought the world nothing but strife and bloodshed. And it is happening again.

    Put an end to terrorism? Don´t look at the colour of your neighbour´s skin or care to which God they pray. Instead see how they love their children, take care of their elderly and care for each other. Don´t hate a whole race of people or all the followers of a religion. Weed out the extremists by all means but be prepared to re-educate their followers as has been done with some success in Yemen. http://discardedlies.com/entries/2005/02/a_theological_dialogue.php

    I'm not suggesting anything and are not meassuring on my own standards.
    I try to figure out how the masses of people might react one day.

    I myself am not a strong believer. But religion has caused many wars. But it also brings people hope. Its just hard for me to imagine a world without religion I guess. So we cant get rid of it, and we dont know how to solve these problems either. Kinda makes you wish that some godly figure would come down and set things straight, eh?

    100 % correct!
    BTW I suggest this thread to be stopped. We are not doing anything useful here but plant hate and anger.
