Only when Muslim youth stop believing that they get paradise for killing kaffirs, Islamic terror stops.
Yet Jihad is being taught in madrasas as a sure path to a higher rank in paradise. Why? Because the Quran says so:
“Those believers who stay at home – having no physical disability – are not equal to those who make Jihad in the cause of Allah with their wealth and their persons. Allah has granted a higher rank to those who make Jihad with their wealth and their persons than to those who stay at home. Though Allah has promised a good reward for all, Allah has prepared a much richer reward for those who make Jihad for Him than for those who stay at home. They have special higher ranks, forgiveness and mercy. Allah is forgiving, merciful” (Quran 4. 95-96).
In the Quran, there are many exhortations for the believers to fight. And in case somebody has doubts because his conscience tells him that killing is not good, he is fortified with the following:
“Fighting has been made compulsory for you, much to your dislike. It is quite possible that something which you don’t like is good for you and something which you love is bad for you. Allah knows and you do not.” Q2.216
And what is the goal of Jihad? The whole world must worship only Allah. Islam is the only true religion.
“Oh believers, fight them until there is no more mischief and the Deen of Allah is established completely.” Q 8.39
The fight against terror must include looking at this ideology, otherwise attacks will continue . It still does not happen, though at least it is not praised anymore so much as for example under Obama.
