    Why would you visit Mali though?
    For the same reason you'd visit the uk or Spain why?
    It's a bit ****
    So, like the UK and Spain?

    Could be white terrorists.
    How is race relevant? A Muslim can have any skin colour.

    They're suspected jihadis, so almost certainly Muslim.

    I find it offensive when people jump to the conclusion that it must be a Muslim. You're using the word Muslim like they're a different species.

    What are you actually on about? How is making the factual statement that Muslims can have any skin colour making them seem like a different species? That's straight from your imagination, not from anything I wrote.

    Maybe it was one of those Jewish jihadis we hear so much about.

    What are you even talking about? I was responding to a comment, not towards this investigation.

    The sources clearly stated suspected 'jihadis' - would you happen to know of any non-Muslim Jihadis?

    let me just make this clear to you and to everyone here... ISIS are NOT Muslims
    Yes they are. (The following should really be a sticky)

    they are a group of people who don't like the way Islam is being followed so they made up their own little religion and said this is the right way to follow Islam BUT it's NOT...
    Nearly right. They are a group of Muslims who believe that Islam has become too modernised and moved away from strictly following the Quran and sunnah.

    Islam never said to kill innocent people
    No. But a classical Islamic interpretation of "innocent" is essentially those who submit to Islam and obey god's laws. The Quran and sunnah contain many passages that prescribe or encourage killing people who would be considered "innocent" under the laws of most western countries.

    or suicide
    The Quran and sunnah promise great reward for those who die "fighting in the way of Allah" and those who were willing to give up their lives for their faith are praised in Islam.

    or force people to follow Islam,
    Again, the Quran and sunnah contain passages that clearly call for fighting until all disbelief is eradicated and that one way to avoid death is to convert

    however ISIS did!
    ISIS are merely following the Quran and sunnah. Just because the majority of Muslims no longer follow those passages doesn't mean they are not there. Remember that not one word of the Quran can be changed or rejected (this is something that needs to change).

    Actually, Islam says the complete opposite,, suicide is not allowed in Islam because God gave you this life and only he can take it away...
    "Suicide" may be forbidden, but dying while fighting an enemy is highly praised.

    You can't force people to follow this religion because
    Possibly not, but the Quran and sunnah do say that they can be killed if they refuse to submit, which amounts to the same thing.

    ISIS does not represent Islam or Muslims please get this straight!
    It does represent one particular interpretation of Islam, and it represents those Muslims who favour that interpretation. In some countries, as many as 20% of Muslims have a "favourable opinion" of ISIS. When added up around the world, this equates to many millions of Muslims who support ISIS! This is an issue that needs to be addressed and simply claiming that it has "nothing to do with Islam" does not help. The first step to resolving a problem is admitting that you have a problem http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank...dain-for-isis/

    Are you incapable of reading what I wrote?

    I'd suggest people visit the UK and Spain for very different reasons.
