If terrorism and WMD are such a threat, what are the causes?

Terrorism is the "greatest threat of the 21st century". But only according to the US, the UK, and Israel.in media, news, we hear the word "terrorism" many times almost every day.
Nobody has benefitted more from terrorism than the US, the UK, and Israel. They use terrorism as an excuse to change the law, giving more power to the authorities and withdrawing freedoms from the people. They use terrorism as an excuse to attack and conquer foreign lands. They exploit our fear to win support.
by the wuy next time you leave your house, beware, because crossing the road is many hundreds of thousands of times more of a threat to your life than terrorism.

  • Oct 17 2013: i believe that the conversation was very obvious,that we can immediately understand the issue meanwhile the reasons-causes-behind this...
    a perfect lie cannot live for ever , we cannot stop terrorism if we didnt stop the monster inside us pretending what we are not ,soon or later the lines well be clearer.

    Terrorism is above all murder. Murder is strictly forbidden in the Qur’an. Qur’an 6:151 says, “and do not kill a soul that God has made sacrosanct, save lawfully.” (i.e. murder is forbidden but the death penalty imposed by the state for a crime is permitted).
    "Judgment also will I lay to the line, and righteousness to the plummet: and the hail shall sweep away the refuge of lies, and the waters shall overflow the hiding-place." --Isaiah 28:17.

    the point is we have the power.... but we need a strong perception besides honest people who can take care of us and make sure that evry one well get what he deserve.
    sadly our people dealt with the devil...can we defy them & say stop;no more lies no more suffer no more terrorism,from the president of the united state to the poorer and weekless person on the earth.we are not fool but we are humain.
