Egyptian Christain, you wrote: "As a matter of fact, Islamic Terrorism has nothing to do with the Arab-Israeli Conflict."

You are absolutely right. Palestine is the excuse for Muslim terrorism at present. If that is solved Muslims will find another exuse!!! There are lots of other places that Muslims claim to be their own. The land they invaded and grabbed from the original inhabitants and now they call it their own!!!

"Islamic terrorism is related basically to the spread of the hard line Wahabi Faith among Muslims."

I would say you are partially right. Just replace "Wahhabi hard line" with Islam and you will be totally right. When Mohammad was spreading his religion or cult with raids on Mecca, was that regular unadulterated Islam of Mohammad or was that Wahhabi hard line??? Do you see any difference between the two???Deobandi Muslims in India, followers of Maudoodi in Pakistan or followers of Qutab in Egypt teach the same things as Wahhabis of Saudia or what Mohammad did originally, believe it or not!! Therefore, it is all one and same Islam.

"I believe it is all related to the Wahabi explanation of Islam, and if we assume Israeli-Palestinian conflict is solved, we will see new excuses to spread hatred in another way."

That is Islam, not just Wahhabi, Deobandi, Maudoodi, or Qutab hard line.
