Why is so hard to understand that people will fight if you get involved in their business.
You call these Mujahedin who fight in places like Afghanistan, Iraq, Checnya, and elsewhere "terrorist, murders, etc". What is so hard to understand?
Don't invade their lands or don't get into their internal affairs, and they won't fight you! Simple as that.
Any group of people will resist foreign influence. So stop justifying your countries involvement in Muslim land under the umbrella of "freedom, democracy, peace, all that crap".
If United State's interest is democracy and freedom they wouldn't assassinate Mosaddeq in Iran, instill Saddam in Iraq, resist Suhartor's nationalistic movement in Indonesia. And the list goes on.
These people who are resisting the imperial ambitions of the most powerful country in the history of world has a legitimate right to do so. Just because you're an American citizen shouldn't prevent you from accepting the "principle of universality" which your leaders preach in speeches but fail to implement, likewise citizens like you are not capable of applying that to your country and yourselves.

"Islamic fundamentalism, radicalism, isalmisist, islamofacist" Whatever words you guys call them, did not exist until your imperial and selfish country decided to mingle in Muslim lands. Simple as that. How hard is it to understand? If you attack and opress a Muslim country they will fight back, and it is only natural regardless of their religion, race, or color.
But I guess the principle of 'universality' is too much for silly patriots like you to apply, you have already given your consent to this imperial government out of "patriosm"
Before you start condemming the Muslims take a good look at the hypocricy, the contradictions, and the selfishness of your own goverment. Perhaps it will make you understand the Muslim struggle better.

P.S. Isaq is not a Saheeh hadith and not all of is accepted by the scholars. You're also forgetting those actions accord (if they are true indeed), during the time when Muslims were fighting against Meccan Pagans. (In other words, during war time).

PEACE!
