  •  Well... (5+ / 0-)

    I personally think the extremists fall into two groups: those who know the truth, but choose to distort it for personal fame or other reasons; and those who are ignorant of the truth and are taught a violent interpretation and told that it is the truth.  An example of this would be children sent to an extremist madrassa.

    So my answer would be that yes, some are misinformed, while others are simply twisting Islam to justify their hatred and violence.

    Terror has no religion.
