No religion encourages terrorist acts or violence. The word 'Islam' itself means 'Peace, obtained by submitting yourself to the Almighty'. Anyone, be it Muslim or non-Muslim, who kills an innocent Muslim or a non-Muslim, kills the entire humanity. However, Islam goes a step further to say that if one saves innocent lives, the whole of humanity is saved. Injustice is the root cause of terrorism.
Politics lies at the heart of labelling Muslims across the globe as perpetrators of terror acts, the media controlled by the political authorities is biased and does not portray the truth or reality. Palestinians are called terrorists just because they are fighting to get their land back. So nothing is more removed from truth as to suggest that Muslims have monopolized terrorism.
In every religion there are black sheep and the media keep putting these people forward. This is a media conspiracy and a way of pushing people away from Islam. Even a single killing by a Muslim is condemned by Islam, whatsoever the reasons. People, regardless of their religion, wish to live harmonious lives, but politicians feed the feeling of hatred amongst them.

Muslims themselves should not be demonized for the actions of a select few by any means. But to say that the teachings of Islam itself have no bearing on fostering the sort of hatred that spurs Islamic terrorists to do what they do would be blatantly false. Yes, there are verses teaching peace in the Quran. There are also verses teaching far less peaceful ideals and rules for Muslims to follow, and while most people are evolved enough to disregard those, to say that they don't inspire the hatred of the few causing problems, at least in part, would be intellectually dishonest.0
