What do Muslim Extremists Want from the West?
Though it varies a bit from group to group, the general idea is this.
Radical Muslims essentially believe they are fighting a defensive war, the only type of war Islam permits. They claim that the West has been colonizing, exploiting, and supporting oppressive regimes in the Middle East for centuries, and that such actions justify a violent response from Muslims who are sick of it.
As we know, the key to any great con, is having one part of it being true. In this case, the West IS guilty of exploiting/colonizing the Muslim world for centuries, and these actions do engender natural violent response.
Of course, Extremists take it further, by claiming that all Muslim governments that cooperate with these Western powers also deserve to be destroyed. That all Muslims who don’t join their struggle are “against them”, and deserve to be killed. That all citizens who live in Western countries are guilty of the destruction caused by their governments, because we pay taxes and vote for them.
In short, Muslim extremists have taken a VERY popular idea in Islam (resisting oppression), and twisted it into a “us against them” mentality that justifies anything.
