It's quite clear to me that a specific subset of Muslims are
indeed trying to do exactly that, and have said so clearly and
explicitly several times, and that a smaller subset of /those/
are responsible for the attack. You seem to be trying to deny
or evade those facts, not just the over-generalization of them
to more Muslims, or misattribution of the specific motives for
the attack (which I agree are not easy to pin down).
