I read on CNN today that the suspects in the shooting of the French cartoonist were radicalized Islamic's. This seems to be non stop endless killing and retaliation how can things ever change?


First on CNN: France tells U.S. Paris suspect trained with al Qaeda in Yemen - CNN.com

Perhaps a more relevant question would be why are radicals so violent?

And looking back through history makes it evident that Islam is hardly the only religion that's had its violent radical practitioners.

Of course the OP has phrased the question with a blanket over the top assumption - but with the seeming propensity of a sizable minority of those perpetrating violence in the name of Islam, it's not greatly surprising that we've got here.

Lots of issues with Christians in history no doubt but that was over 100+ years ago this issue is today not 100 years ago. What can be done to stop the violence. Sending drones to kill Islamic radical leaders isn't going to solve anything they just replace him with another.

In 2013 there were 152 terrorist attacks in the EU. 2 of them were religious in origin, and none of those were from Muslims. Worldwide, Muslim terrorism makes up less than 10% of the total terrorist attacks. Ethnic/separatist attacks make up the majority. Get the facts, don't just make assumptions based on what you see in online media.

Evil does lurk everywhere, but La Cosa Nostra, the Italian mob? They only went after their own. Not innocents.
