It is not a new phenomenon and I assume stems from radicalism - "political orientation of those favoring revolutionary change". My perception is radicalism under a Democratic system does not necessarily need to lead to the utilisation of violence as a methodology for achieving change unless the very construct of Democracy is the significant value difference.

Islamic State: Malcolm Turnbull declares terrorist group 'weak' in first national security statement as PM
ABC By political reporter Eliza Borrello 24/11/20015
Clearly these shit for brains idiots Turnbull and those advising him with their complete ignorance revealed by their little in jokes, states the very reason the existence of 'dense social networks' -'more smartphones than guns' enables Islamic/Muslim codex based 'discourse which supersedes all other forms of language (practices), a fact which makes it nigh impossible for an individual adherent to break psychologically, behaviorally from the Islamic/Muslim tradition of terror-genocide against Other, to be able use alternative Other language in a critical–reflective way.'. The very reason ISIS and the off the Quranic rack Muslim terrorists in Australia's own space let alone Nigeria, Kenya, France, England, Syria, Iraq, .... are able to deliver terror so effectively into our streets is because they have 'more smartphones than guns' - they have 'dense social networks' reflective of the Islamic/Muslim 'social network' itself.
Who I ask are going to protect us from such morons clearly not they for all they promise is more Islamic/Muslim cultural derived terror.
“Norms-shared ideas about proper way to behave-are clearer, more firmly held and easier to enforce the more dense a social network. (If a social network consists of n “nodes”. People, firms or other social units, “density” is the proposition of the possible n(n-1)/2 connections among these nodes that are actually present.). This argument is one of the oldest in social psychology; for instance, see the classical account of Festinger, Schachter and Back (1948). It rests on the fact that the denser the network, the more unique paths along which information, ideas about proper behaviour are more likely to be encountered repeatedly, discussed and fixed; it also renders deviance from resulting norms harder and harder to hide and thus, more likely to be punished.” (Granovetter, 2005)
My major concern derived from such stupidity of putting the very reason Islamic/Muslim cultural terror is being managed so effectively 'dense social networks' to be able to utilise the guns, explode the bombs run down citizens, is we are being asked to 'grow confidently' with terror and frankly I am not happy to do so nor for my children's children to experience such as state informing complex trauma as normative. I find such a demand completely unacceptable to determine as a given fellow citizens will be increasingly killed by citizens from a specific culture and we are to 'grow confidently' with such a culture without objection to such a culture's continuing existence in our societal midst to increasingly inform the same, it is a diabolical state.
After each inevitable atrocity delivered by such a political paradigm the 'good' stand on each new pile of broken bodies and the ocean of grief into which they sink shouting across at those who demand it stop "bigots, xenophobes, hateful ignorance, hysteria, trolls, Islamophobes, LOVE!". The very supporters of the Islamic/Muslim culture and the adherents themselves, a culture which can be clearly proved to systemically be producing these bloody piles of lost dreams, aspirations, since the seventh century have the temerity to accuse those objecting as evil - it beggars belief.
There is a political argument being carried out in our public and private spheres as who is responsible and therefore how such terror can be stopped is it the 'few' or the 'many' and the 'few', for me it is important to resolve fairly quickly 'who is responsible' and why for it appears to me we are setting ourselves up for the usual ratcheting of terror in both directions to resolve political differences.
The key for me is to seek to establish if a 'hug', statements of 'Love is all we need', good intentions of any number of 'individuals of conscience and a sense of responsibility' is in truth going to make any real difference in the long term. Is Einstein correct and given Einstein is, it therefore is impossible not to determine the law-abiding adherents of "conscience and a sense of responsibility" culpable for the 'few' they systematically produce from their ranks to visit terror upon humanity. For not to do so enables the terror to continue.
"Communities tend to be guided less than individuals by conscience and a sense of responsibility. How much misery does this fact cause mankind! It is the source of wars and every kind of oppression, which fill the earth with pain, sighs and bitterness." (Albert Einstein, 1934)
My other concern is current policy settings are causing and will cause increasing cases of complex trauma among citizens resulting from continuing horrific terror events in and outside borders with citizens being told at the same time they are powerless as well as their political elite to stop these attacks getting though the heavily resourced security screens. My concern is such trauma will feed increasingly into violent reactionary behavior to achieve equilibrium - a return to a state of "a positive and secure self".
"Complex trauma not only involves shock, fear, terror, or powerlessness (either short or long term) but also, more fundamentally constitutes a violation of .. and a challenge to the development of a positive and secure self, as major psychic energy is directed toward survival and defense rather than learning and personal development." Treatment of Complex Trauma Courtois/Ford @2016
My view is culture is responsible in the end for prejudice levels, given individuals genetics/epigenetics, experiences (mainly framed by culture) and context - degree of power i.e. in a dominant cultures space, and will set the cultural behavioral variance within which an adherent resides.
"Without the ceaseless pulsating heartbeat of our categorization engine, we would understand nothing around us, could not reason in any form whatever, could not communicate to anyone else, and would have no basis on which to take any action.
every culture constantly, although tacitly, reinforces the impression that words are simply automatic labels that come naturally to mind and that belong intrinsically to things and entities"
SURFACES AND ESSENCES, ANALOGY AS THE FUEL AND FIRE OF THINKING, Douglass Hofstadter (American professor of cognitive science), Emmanuel Sander (French Psychologist-Developmental Psychology, Cognitive Psychology, Educational Psychology), 2013
Humanity has not learnt its lesson - how many times does the same mistake have to be made?
“The outstanding feature of the opening phase of the Middle East (WWII) was the unreadiness of both sides to undertake operations. This dangerous state of affairs had been forced on the British Service authorities by Government policy, which resulted in the first instance from general public apathy towards defence, and secondly from the attempt to appease the imperialistically minded dictators by weakly acquiescing in the early acts of aggression.
The lessons here are:
(a) That once Service strengths have been allowed to run down they cannot be restored quickly.
(b) That the restoration of Service strengths requires much more than giving them the necessary manpower; it requires an immense and sustained effort involving every aspect of national life.
(c) That peace cannot be brought by appeasement; that it is far better in the long run to challenge at an early stage rather than allow an aggressor to go on from strength to strength until the inevitable war begins with the defender at a dangerous disadvantage.
If you make the deductions from your intelligence reports fit your preconceived notions about what the enemy is or ought to be doing, you are almost bound to be surprised.”

‘preconceived notions’=refugee adherents of a genocide construct crossing your borders first, second, third generations do not represent an increasing terror risk to Other cultures and will not inform burning buildings, broken bodies and lives this culture systematically informs, with bloodied bodies already in your own streets.
I would like to get this hardcover insightful book wasted upon our current inept dangerous cultural gatekeepers who allow the enemy to flourish within our walls and inform terror-genocide increasingly in our streets as this enemy have done throughout history and continue to do elsewhere and………
My view is this:
No culture has a right to visit terror-genocide against another culture in the same space - be it perpetrated by the 'few' sourced from the 'many' or the 'few' in time as elsewhere becoming the 'many'.
It can no longer be a matter of 'educating' citizens as to their responsibilities and behaviours regards each other as individuals in Democracies which necessarily contain many cultures due to our globalized world, as cultures set the behavioral variance within which their adherents exist it is a matter of reviewing what a cultures responsibilities and behaviours regards each other culture in their same space have to be and abide by for any culture to be accepted to and remain in a Democratic multicultural space.
Why? The Islamic/Muslim cultural derived terror-genocide is not going to stop the Western Democracies themselves via their dangerous inept cultural gatekeepers are supplying the resources and political space for the Muslim 'moderate' law-abiding families, communities and institutions to create and sustain the 'few' from their very ranks to provide the leaders, management. perpetrators of crimes against humanity inclusive of Muslim adherents themselves (determined as not 'real' Muslims or whose demise is simply Allah's will-in the wrong place at the wrong time) as well as Other and the protestations on 'I Love Other' or grotesquely a demand humanity simply 'Loves each other more.'. after each atrocity from only one end of the Muslim behavioral variance as with all cultures containing a clear genocide construct of Other in their codex, makes absolutely no difference to what will occur in the future because the Islamic/Muslim construct of Other has not changed and nor have the Islamic/Muslim political and behavioral constructs which necessitated such a genocide construct of Other to be created in the first place.

"The time has come for us to be honest with ourselves and indeed each other. The radicalisation that breeds terrorism is not conducted in the bush at night. It occurs in the full glare of day in homes, in madrasas and in mosques with rogue imams. We must ask the question — where are the parents and families ( communities, education and religious institutions) of those who are being radicalized?" said Uhuru Kenyatta, Kenya's president

“We cannot eliminate entirely the risk of terrorism any more than we can eliminate the risk of any serious crime." Malcolm Turnbull
Malcolm Turnbull tells parliament 'ISIL is in a fundamentally weak position' 9NEWS November 24, 2015
This is a disingenuous statement for it ignores the fact terrorism relates to a specific cultural construct 'attractor' i.e. in terms of the IRA the fact of the British occupation and oppression of the Irish people, if the Irish had been Buddhist, the attractor would still be the about getting back land and addressing the oppression not about religious differences. So the attractor for the Irish was a unified Irish homeland. When these grievances were able to be in the main addressed albeit marginally as Ireland was not reunified and importantly violence was able under a Western Liberal-Christian informed construct to be determined as unacceptable by both sides to then inform peace not war.
It also importantly ignores the fact not all cultures inform systemic violence against Other as a direct consequence of the cultures ‘attractors’ and cultures codex justified and authorized methodology within whatever space they are allowed to flourish and achieve the required resource and political thresholds to start to seek to enforce adherence internally and acceptance externally with the utilization of violence – fear and elimination of Other to achieve those attractors.
For example the IRA are not going to move into Australia start committing violence because they believe the Northern Territory is theirs by right therefore terror is not a universal it is culture specific and its manifestation are space context specific – i.e. in a dominant culture space after each atrocity you will have as we see one end of the cultural behavioral variance reflecting back Others values the point is what is happening elsewhere in the behavioral variance, are such statements stopping the terror, if not they are worthless as they therefore have no justification or authority stemming from their cultural codex to make such views as claimed reflective of the actual ‘real’ normative views of the cultural whole. The piles of bloody bodies keep coming.
What is happening where the attacking Islamic/Muslim culture is the dominant culture determines such statements as 'I Love Other' as a tragic paradox, tragic for it is an attempt to deny culturally such acts of Muslim terror-genocide are normative in another space despite the evidence and therefore given increasing resources and political space will not also increasingly apply in your space despite the existence of system theory which determines such a view a lie. When you reflect as our fellow Other cultures are being torn apart, know it is only the fact those proclaiming 'I love Other' can do so only in another dominant cultural space which affords them relative though as we see and is expected diminishing capacity to do so.

“Although religious hostilities affect countries throughout the world experience, Muslim-majority countries consistently have higher levels of a range of religious hostilities than other countries and by wide margins. For instance, Muslim-majority countries are more than three times more likely than other countries to have religion-related war, terror or sectarian violence, ...”
Pew Research 2012
So this idea there are 1.5 billion Muslims and therefore Muslims should not be held culpable for the terror-genocide, religious hostilities emanating from the space these 1.5 billion exist in is determined a nonsense as one has to see what happened and is happening to Other in time in that space. Clearly there is a significant difference and as with all things human it is the relativity of a phenomenon in terms of frequency and lethality which determines threat.
Terror-genocide of Other is not a new phenomenon and I assume stems from radicalism - "political orientation of those favoring revolutionary change". My perception is radicalism under a Democratic system does not necessarily need to lead to the utilisation of violence as a methodology for achieving change unless the very construct of Democracy is the significant cultural value difference between the attacking culture and Other cultures in the same space.

The reality of the Islamic/Muslim political constructs of the ‘few’ and the law-abiding ‘many’ for Other which is why terror will increase not because it is simply an inherent phenomenon derived from all cultures.
"Banda Aceh: Indonesia's conservative Aceh province has enacted a strict Islamic criminal code, officials said late on Friday, criminalising adultery, homosexuality, and public displays of affection outside of a legally recognised relationship, with penalties that include public whippings with a thin rattan cane....
The sharia law comes after Aceh's government said several Christian churches would be shut down, just days after a mob burned down a church earlier this month, killing one person and injuring several others."
Indonesia's Aceh province enacts Islamic criminal code smh October 24, 2015
Indonesian province of Ache reflects the political and behavioral ‘attractors’ which are inherent in the Islamic/Muslim cultural codex, as for goodness sake can be found in or developing with violence in other Muslim dominated spaces.
Criminality on the other hand is universal applicable to all societies i.e. theft, murder, embezzlement, ....is nothing like terrorism for terrorism relates directly to a specific cultures codex defined attractors in the case of the Islamic/Muslim culture set out in the Quran, with as is not always necessarily the case methodology for doing so - i.e. the utilisation of violence which has to be there for a reason, and the reason is Other are simply not going to be subject to the political and behavioral constructs without a fight as they determine Other and women subject and Other missing altogether in the end-game.
Aligning criminality and terrorism as being both equally intrinsic to all societies, cultures is a lie and then utilize this lie to determine you are not able to do anything about terrorism and we, humanity just have to ‘grow confidently’ with a specific cultures terror, the culture being the Islamic/Muslim cultures terror is the same rational, logic as determining in the 1930's:
‘We cannot eliminate entirely the risk of terrorism any more than we can eliminate the risk of any serious crime.’ said Neville Chamberlain British Prime Minister in 1938 ‘Humanity simply have to make political concessions to cultures delivering terror-genocide against Other cultures and you have to ignore the bloody bodies and those missing in the streets and ‘grow confidently with Nazi terror’.'.
Does it sound familiar? Will coming generations thank you for cowering in silence or applaud you for accusing the very people opposed to such terror of being bigots and promoters of hate as you support the continuing existence of the very culture delivering terror-genocide and with it a diminished life for this and future generations?
Such an approach would mean northern Ireland would still be a place of extreme violence because the political elite determined terror is the same as criminality why bother – you bother because not every culture in the same space are delivering terror to fellow citizens it is therefore imperative to understand what an inherent cultures attractors are which have to exist to inform such terror, establish if it is possible to have the culture delete these attractors and/or delete the cultural codex justified and authorized violent methodology for achieving these attractors from their cultural codex and if not Other have to act to remove the cultural codex constructs - attractors and methodology, for in essence both intrinsically requires the other, informing terror or simply continue to experience the same.
The Islamic/Muslim attractor is to, as with ALL cultures is to have their cultural codex political and behavioral constructs reflected into the space around them not Others – yours and that construct if achieved has as we see with the Islamic/Muslim constructs dire consequences for Other.
Culture determines and adherents ethics-morals-values-beliefs-motivation and methodology the 'few' derived from the law-abiding 'many' who create and sustain them do not.
Do you really want to have your children's children suffer from complex trauma and even be directly subject to a terror attack, along with a massive redirection of scarce resources because these dangerous inept cultural gatekeepers simply refuse to confront the cause the Islamic/Muslim cultural whole? Courtesy of Turnbull, Shorten, Obama, Angela Merkel, and the Greens determining humanity have to just 'grow confidently' with another cultures terror-genocide in our streets and there is nothing they -political elite can do about it (which is an outright lie).

Do you? Is just one brutalized life worth having such a culture informing such systemic terror-genocide against Other let alone the thousands upon thousands already past and to come if we accept without question “We cannot eliminate entirely the risk of terrorism any more than we can eliminate the risk of any serious crime." Malcolm Turnbull
I am telling you we can, more importantly we have a duty to each Other to do so, to retain for future generations a meaning of Democracy which informs peace and an opportunity for a citizen to achieve a flourishing life in a multicultural space which necessarily requires the prevention of any culture-faith-ideology, secular or religious, which contain a terror-genocide construct of Other cultures within its codex and behavior which can and does necessarily inform an opposite state.
No culture has a right to visit terror-genocide against another culture in the same space - be it perpetrated by the 'few' sourced from the 'many' or the 'few' in time as elsewhere becoming the 'many'.
