people out of the group. Many people group them as a people, but that does not mean they are in the same group as a terrorist group.[Lor15] Another point from Thompson is that ISIS is influencing the young men for the most part. Young men have been used as the main threat for an army or terrorist group in many previous instances. It happened with Hitler's army just like it is happening now. There are some common reasons why: Young men seek power, there no better way than to show how they can create fear in other people. Along with that, young men seek resources and that includes a mate,
all this can be promised and given for a price. ISIS along with many other people has used young men to do their dirty work. It does not start with ISIS and it will not end with ISIS.[Lor15] The final idea of the article is that just because ISIS is made up of men, mostly young ones, does not mean that it is linked to Islam. Men's aggression is an outcome in all cultures. It cannot be pinpointed to one group as many people have been led to believe that it is somehow linked to ISIS. This trait has always been present in all cultures on earth it has not recently come up due to a prophet in the Islamic religion. [Lor15] According to the writers of ‘More Muslim group’s voice willingness to combat extremism in their faith’ people, mainly country leaders, refuse to say there is any kind of connection between ISIS and the Islamic relation. However, some say ISIS is “Hijacking” the religion in an attempt to show their cause.” The Islamic faith is being hijacked by extremists” (Madani). Some say it is something else, for example, people have misinterpreted it but they did not hijack the faith. All these ideas come from Muslims themselves.

Some Muslims felt as if they were being discriminated against and felt a need for revenge. A couple leaders in the Islamic religion feel a need to set people right. They help them understand that committing harm to the community or even the Americas is not the right thing to do. [Mor15] A problem that Marzetta points out is that people label people quickly. There were two attacks in France over the course of two years. The first incident happened December 2014. A middle-aged man drove a car down the street in Dijon, France. He hit thirteen people but no one died from the injuries. Every now and then, he shouted Islamic slogans out his window. He was later determined to be a deranged man who motives were not relevant to that of ISIS.[Maz16]
The second incident was much more hazardous to the people of France. It happened a year and a half later on the Bastille Day of celebration in Nice, France. Mohamed Lahouaiej Bouhlel drove a 19-ton truck down a populated road killing dozens of people. Later the ISIS group claimed this man as one of their own.[Maz16] Even before ISIS claimed the man, He was labeled a terrorist linked to ISIS.
