Sure you can empathize with them, but empathy does not make their actions correct.

Maybe they should learn that behavior like this will only bring about trouble.
Who said any of it is justified? Was the US justified in taking land (together with the UN) that didn't have a clear owner (for lack of a better word) and deciding who would own it after WWII? It isn't murder from their perspective, it's war. They believe they are likely in a hopeless situation, but they are at least going to go down fighting. I'm pretty sure that, if the US wasn't a super power and another country, maybe the old USSR, had overpowered us at some point in time and given our land away, you wouldn't want to sit down and merely accept it as the new reality. I agree behavior like this from the extremists will only bring about trouble, but what can they do that won't? It's either accept their violated situation or bring about trouble. The obvious real alternative is to sit down, talk, and work out a compromise. But that has been tried already over and over throughout history and hasn't worked yet. They have no reason to believe it ever will.

I will give them a few options.
A) Cease the practice of Islam.
B) Reform Islam.
C) Stop violence, and continue Islam.
D) Grow up and let go of petty quibbles.

For god loved the world so much he tortured his only begotten son, gave him a 3 day nap only to wake up in ultimate awesomeness and called it a sacrifice.

Here's an idea: Act rationally for a fucking change. That'd be a start. Instead of blowing people up when you get mad, start a diary, hit a pillow, grab a doob.

Of course it would be better if they acted rationally, but they are swimming in a sea of irrationality inculcated since childhood. We have the same problem with the fundies in the U.S. Some of them kill doctors.

Aye, aye cap'n. There ought to be at least one rational mind that can make a difference in that giant mess.

There have been. They have fatwas issued against them. Consider

But yet, according to some on here, Islam isn't the problem. Consider
