Islam: From missionaries to becoming terrorists
Explode that lower red box clarity here:
These folks did not start out to be extremist or even go beyond the edge into terrorism. They were devout Muslims and giving Islamic teachings a lot of attention. Along the way it changed. How it happened should be the subject of an important study. We want to know and identify Islamic "stem cells" and fix this before they turned extreme and un-Islamic in every way except in name.
But some aren't like the rest and I think they are the majority too. I presume these are the every day Muslims we are most familiar with: good caring people. They probably knew less about their faith's teachings but lived the little they knew, compared to those who are puffed up in knowledge and ended up with dangerous leanings.
