Thankyou for you comments and reasoning. We all need to understand and know the logic behind Islamic violence. The Koran 8:12 says strictly: "I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore, strike off their heads and strike of every fingertip of them." A 2015 poll taken by Al Jazeera news organization shows 81% of Arabic Muslims support ISIS. The Koran repeatedly commands muslims to wage perpetual warfare against non-Muslims. Koran 9:73, 9:5, 2:191-193, 9:14, 2:216, 9:29, 3:151, 8:39, 8:57, 8:65 just to mention a few of the scriptures that call for war and Jihad. This strategy combined with Taqiyya is active deceit, which is doctrinally grounded in Islam, and are the tools used to overcome the infidel and has Quranic support which falls within the legal category of things that are permissible for Muslims. Quran 3:28 is often seen as the primary verse that sanctions deception towards non-muslims: "Let believers, (muslims) not take infidels for friends and allies instead of believers. Whoever does this shall have no relationship left with God...unless you guard yourselves against them, taking precaution. So the so called intermingling with infidels is to gain their confidence and promote peace, but after gaining power or political power, then going after the infidels as they are commanded to do in the Quran. Its active deceit.
