What I'm saying is that maybe what you think is the cause of this, is merely the tool, and the actually cause is a lot more complex than just pointing the finger at religion, immigration etc.
Everyone here and in the media and in politics? Really?
Pretty often especially here whenever a terrorist attack of some sort happens people bring up how afraid they are of the far right now taking over. And many are saying we shouldn't give in to fear because that only helps the terrorists. This is not a thing that is ignored especially here.
However, religious terrorism is not a thing that needs people to be discriminated at first. Most of these ISIS attacks still happen in countries where muslims are the majority. How are they exactly discriminated there the way they might be discriminated here?
The one thing these terrorist especially need for their cause to exist is to have a world with things the religion doesn't approve.
This doesn't suddenly become a lesser reason when the perpetrator lives in the west.
These people are attacking other muslims too. All they need for that is to know the other muslims don't live by the rules the terrorists would like them to live. For them seeing peace loving muslims live in a world of pornography and blasphemy and whatever else they see the west is guilty of producing is a reason to think their work is necessary.
And no, some of the terrorists themselves not living by the rules doesn't mean this isn't a factor behind the reasoning. Those people might see that just as a proof of the west and its vices getting into their heads too, and to reduce the feel of blame and self hatred they feel they have to be part of destroying that sort of evil.
They have no trouble with chopping off the hands and executing people of their own if they see them doing things the religion doesn't approve. Even if the west wouldn't exist, these nuts would make sure "the western lifestyle" wouldn't infiltrate their world.
They will not stop if far right rules the world. They will not stop if far left rules the world. They will not stop if the moderate center rules the world. They stop only if they rule the world and even then they would attack the fellow muslims if they felt they were not living by the rules. This is a problem that needs to be addressed for the sake of both non-muslims and muslims in the world.
And it's definitely even more
complex thing than what just adding the discrimination of muslims in the west to the equation.
