    You said it Mark, could not agree more with you when it comes to the real deep underlying motivation of jihadi's: existential fear for, enormous frustration about and raw anger directed to the overwhelming power and attractiveness Western civilisation has with all it's individual freedoms, chances and choices. Here in Amsterdam beardmen/Islamists hasve recently started attacking a fcew young working modern dressed women of Turkish and Moroccon decent. These are decisive times for they are getting more and more desperate, the beardmen. About the European lines kemal Ataturk followed: a not so nobel well known European line is that when you want to create a nation-state, first thing you do is kill off or expel all minorities that could stand in the way of the newly desired identity for all. Ataturk followed the line Isabelle and Ferdinand started long ago when they wanted to create a nation-state. Ask any Armenian. Regards.
