I don't like what the term "Islamism" has come to mean, because that term is very misleading. At it's very core, the religion of Islam is actually similar to other religions of the world in that it preaches non-violence and love for all humankind. So I think that's what Islamism should mean. For every quote from the Koran espousing violence, I can show you a quote from the Koran that espouses peace and love. The bible is no different. The old testament is full of violence and genocide, the new testament is full of love and forgiveness. I think it's important to understand that the people that carry out those attacks are nothing more than disenfranchised people without identity or purpose, who turn to violence to give them the illusion of power and purpose.
