    The problem of terrorism is inherent in the Arab society where the people are improvised by the ruling class and these improvised people find their way to the west to find better living. But they are then radicalized by these same people who improvised them to cause terror in the west. The west must either send these people from the Arab world back or address the government of these countries. Also these Arab world contribute to the act of terrorism because they may their societies Islamic, not allowing other religion to coexist in their societies and as such these terrorist then see it as a crime to see the system of coexistence of religion in the west wrong. So this act of not allowing the coexistence of other religion in the Arab society should be stop and a law should come to action that every religion has the right of existence in any part of the globe.
