Stop giving excuses for the loss of innocent lives

In light of 9/11, 7/7, Madrid Bombings Israeli/Palestinian Conflict, Mumbai,Hiroshima, Rwanda and the Holocost along with many other acts of Terrorism this cause was created:

A group determined to have a unified voice in denouncing all forms of Terrorism whether by individual or State. Whether carried out by people claiming to be followers of any religion or movement. Zero tolerance and zero compassion for those who resort to killing innocents to further a cause.

The most common definition of Terrorism is "the calculated use of violence (or the threat of violence) against civilians in order to attain goals that are political or religious or ideological in nature". Terrorism is an act and not an intention. Its definition springs from ideals and differing points of view of life. The terrorist could be a state or a group or individual. According to human nature every person could commit adultery, lie, betray, blackmail or kill. Only the thought or prospect of being accounted could stop a man from doing what is against his beliefs or to suppress his burst of emotions.

Islamic jurisprudence sanctions warfare in limited circumstances - normally between armies, and not by armies against civilians. Under Islamic law, warfare may be waged between states, or a state may use violence to suppress a rebellion, or defend against an invading army. Islam stipulates that all acts of punishment of civilians are strictly a judicial duty and responsibility.

According to Islamic tenets, no incompetent person or group of people are allowed to take the implementation of these tenets into their own hands. Such an undertaking is considered illegitimate in Islamic sharia unless in certain cases where the individual needs to protect his life.
