While muslims want islam to have a greater influence in politics, according to a survey, people in non-muslim countries see it as the cause of terrorism
According to a recent international survey, people in muslim countries seem to be gradually turning away from terrorism. At the same time, however, they want islam to play a more coarse political role. While the citizens of non-muslim countries are most likely to consider islam as the faith most prone to violence, for muslims it is the judaic religion. Even though this survey seems to indicate a shift away from islamist extremism, the gap between cultures is widening due to terrorism.
Suicide bombings are a powerful and threatening type of attack against which there is little protection. The same applies to all cases in which a person sacrifices his life for a cause, i.E. The rational principle of self-preservation is violated. Not for nothing did socrates stand at the beginning of philosophy, a man who sacrificed himself in order to uphold his ideas against the community. He was followed by jesus christ and his many imitators who exemplified the power of martyrdom until the rule of rome was undermined and christians slipped from opposition to power. Since then, martyrdom, because it undermines any rule, was no longer desired by church and state.
