its not true to claims a religion as a motive for terrorism. and if any one disagrees that , then he should first study that religion and then only decide, just by seeing what media is doing , none can decide...media just shows what it wants, truth may be something else.so, i earnest request to anyone who is blaiming a religion as a motive to terrorism , first make an attempt to study what it teaches, and then only make a decision.

All I can say is that i can see that the "Holy War" will be excalated to phenomenal proportions sometime soon. And FYI, Muslims and Christians do share the same beliefs but one of the major differences is that Muslims see Jesus as prophet as to Christians see him as a Messiah. I have read the bible and studied. Now what i want to do is to read the Koran, anyone got a copy they want to give me?

when politics fail to do somthing,they then use the name of religion to reach a certain goal,that gives birth to terrorism...but the truth its purely politics and religion have nothing to do with that..never.

yes i do see a relationship between terrirism and religion beacause if they believe in some weird as god(no offence if anyone else believes in it) who would tell them that they had to die to be accepted in that gods heaven, then they would most likly believe it. with the september 11 attacks( which also happens to be my bday, 9 days from now) the terrorists were so set on killing so many people just to achieve something that people would eventually get over, like rebuild the buildings that were destroyed and damaged. fair enough, you cant rebuild the people that were killed, but they will be remembered by the families who loved them with all of their hearts, who will never forget them ever.terrorisim is also a rather selfish and pathetic attempt to kill others and themselves

I do not think one should blame the religon because some terrorists came from that religion. It is purely individuals who for the sake of money (big money) and to capture power are trying to do all these crimes.

Sure, some people distort the message of some religions to support their own twisted beliefs, whether in Iraq or the US.

i think that religion can be a motive for terrorism but it's also a political reason.
