To say that however is as silly as saying 'all Christians are young earth creationists' (an accusation thrown at me recently when I challenged some plank who was claiming life on earth was started by 'evolution') such comments are not only unhelpful, they serve to harden attitudes.
I know several Muslim guys here in Lancashire where we have Pakistani and Bangla Deshi communities, they like a drink as the pub with us English lads, follow local football teams, have a bet on the horses and do many unislamic things. People do not have to follow every moral stricture to the letter to be true to their faith.
Many years ago I knew a young woman named Hayat Asafa. One evening, at her flat after we had been to an Ian Dury gig I was teasing about her being an immodest woman because she went out with hair unvovered and face unveiled, wearing a short skirt and high heels (Hayat was very westernised).
"You want modest," she said, skipped off to the bedroom and returned wearing only a hijab and high heels.
"So long as the face and hair are covered the rest doesn't matter in my parent's sect," she told me.
People are different, communities are different.
Having said that, it seems the San Bernadino Shooters had something in common with the perpetrators of last month's attack in Paris, the Charlie Hebdo terrorists and the 9/11 hijackers. They had links with Saudi Arabia.
And Saudi Arabia is a nation the west considers an ally in the middle east. Maybe it is time to rethink our relationship with the Wahabi medievalist kingdom.

Loud Trump Resonates Throughout America - Boggart Abroad
I don't know why the politically correct left are getting so worked up about The Trump, American politics is even more tightly controlled by big money than the European system, and the really big money (Golman Sachs, J P Morgan, Soros and company) are not going to let him win. It would upset thrir buddies in Saudi Arabia too much.
Christians Are Not Safe In Europe, European Parliament President Says
In a meeting on religious tensions in Europe today (3 December, 2015), European Parrliament (EP) President Martin Schulz said that the persecution of Christians in Europe is under - reported and does not receive enough media attention, which has also meant that it "has not been properly addressed".
ISIS: Know Your Enemy - Who Of Those We Think Are On Our Side Is Helping ISIS
Who is funding ISIS, how has the terror group managed to assemble such a large, well equipped and (apparently) well fed fighting force and been able to wage a two year war against the Assad regime in Syria, the forces of the autonomous Kurds and the army of the Iraqi government, such as it is? Who is facilitating their illegal oil trade that is keeping Islamic State afloat.
France is trying to create a coalition to destroy Isil, but President Obama isn't interested
With France leading Europe into a coalition with Russia against Islamic State, and Chia also giving its support to the struggle against Islamic extremism, why is Barack Hussein Obama still pussyfooting around and talking about the need to support moderate anti - Assad groups? Could it be his Saudi puppet masters agenda of overthrowing Assad is more important to him.
Smart Phones Will Not Make Banking Safer
Yet the war on cash goes on. The latest move is to encourage people to use their smartphone to do their online banking. My first reaction on reading this was, "They're having a laugh aren't they?" laptops and tablets are ridiculously easy to hijack, smartphones don't even need to be hacked, like tired old slappers whose sexual allure has gone south, but who still crave attention, they will offer themselves without needing to be asked.
