I'm definitely not blaming Islam, neither am I blaming the Americans (poll is too black and white), I would blame European colonialism. And I guess the America option is the closest I could get to that.
I place most of the blame on America. As far as Iraq is concerned, we are the terrorists. More Iraqi civilians died and displaced since the invasion than Americans who were killed on 9/11.
well they have invaded most of it.
United States eagerly destroyed Iraq for oil, supported Israel to occupy Palestine, created ISIS, encouraged double standard media, got involved in Libya, worsened Syria situation in name of "world peace". America is literally related to every conflict regarding the Middle East, blaming Islamic terrorists (ISIS) that got out of control, all of that for America’s profit. Yet, people still believe Islam is the root of all evil. I want to point out that no Muslim would kill a human being, let alone another Muslim. This is insane, like people believe Muslims would like to kill each other, live in conflicts, destroy their countries and eventually die. It doesn’t make sense. Whether you hate Muslims or not, if the media starts to shed lights on one side, you’ve got to start doubting it.
It truly began with the United Kingdom
Fuck American Foreign Politics. Thats all ive got to say, sry m8
This one actually took me a while to decide, but radical Islam has been effecting the middle east for a longer period of time than US involvement.
Radical Islam that is.
If you wake up every morning, walk into the kitchen, turn the water on in the sink, and leave it run continuously until it is time for bed, sending your monthly water bills through the roof; when you move out and the new tenant moves in, can you blame the new guy for your water bills? No. If you come home from work one night, chug a bottle of vodka, then immediately head back to your car for a beer run, ending with you running your car at full speed into a brick wall; can you blame the guy that built the wall or first responders for not being there before you crashed to stop you from hitting the wall? No. It's your own darn fault, now stand up like a big boy and take responsibility.
Radical islam is the direct cause but ultimately it was US and Soviet interventionism which led to a large amount of that extremism.
The tenets of radical Islam are to blame. We are to blame for jumping into the middle of what was not our problem and believing that people would actually appreciate it. Let the middle east do what it will do. Eventually they will take care of the problem themselves. They might not be what we consider 'better off" but their choice.
The Muslim religion may be peaceful sometimes, but they have committed countless unprovoked attacks.
