    That's similar to the idea that quite a few people think a terrorist is an extreme Muslim

    The painful truth bro is no one cares about these kind of terrorist attacks if they don`t take place in the West.

    Why is it painful? It makes sense. The West are not going to care about people thousands of miles away that they have never seen and share very little with in common, it's totally fine. What's not fine is to pretend that what's happening there does not exist and not taking it into account when arguing.

    Its painful in the sense because it undermines that human life is equal,since it seems our media prioritises some victims of terrorism over another .
    What do you mean by not taking it into account when arguing ?Can you give some examples ?

    They are extremist Muslims. But not every terrorist is one.

    Sadly this is usually the case. What happened in Turkey recently didn't receive the same attention as the Orlando shooting etc that happened in the West.

    I know, that was my point- many people think a terrorist must be a Muslim

    Based on voting for Islamist political parties in Islamic nations, it's estimated that around 15% of the Muslim population supports, or at least sympathises, with the cause ISIS are fighting for.*

    The Trevor Phillips survey found that only 34% of British Muslims would inform the police if they thought someone they knew was getting involved with a terrorist organisation.

    The Trevor Phillips survey found that only 34% of British Muslims would inform the police if they thought someone they knew was getting involved with a terrorist organisation.
    For instance, he describes as “alarming” the finding that only 34% of Muslims would report someone to the police who was involved with people who support terrorism in Syria. But for the survey’s “control” group – consisting of randomly selected people from across the country of all or no faiths – the figure is only 30%. And other polls have found that 94% of British Muslims would report someone they knew who was planning an act of violence to the police.

    Anyway I am not here to defend Muslims, but people should just know that ISIS is a global problem, they're not just after white Christians in the West.
