Islamic terrorism

From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Islamic terrorism is a kind of terrorism. The terrorists claim their religion, Islam, or how they interpret it is their motivation.[1] Islam demands terrorism from all.

Some Islamic scholars say that it is wrong to kill innocent people.[2] Some Islamic terrorist groups are Al-Qaeda, Boko Haram, and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant. However, there are hundreds of such groups and many more terrorist attacks attributed to them.

However, it is stated in the Qur'an that "You must not go too far; Allah loves not those who do."[3]"You must resist them until the persecution is done away, and prayers are only to Allah; if they cease fighting, you must not invade anyone but the unrighteous."[4] Islamic terrorists use these verses as their justification to commit acts of terror against non-Muslims as well as Muslims from other branches of Islam.
