Yes, American foreign policy has been disastrous, during and before the Obama Administration started chipping away at everything America once stood for. However, let's not forget that the there would be no Muslim extremism to fuel without a certain religion that allows extremism to exist.
Ayloush said U.S. support for repressive regimes in the Middle East, including Egypt, “push people over to the edge.”
“Then they become extremists,” said Ayloush. “We are partly responsible. Terrorism is a global problem, not a Muslim problem. And the solution has to be global. Everyone has a role in it.”
Cuomo did not challenge him on the assertion that American foreign policy triggered terrorism. In Egypt, former army general Abdel Fattah al-Sisi won election after first staging a military coup against Mohammed Morsi in 2013, after declaring Morsi was leading the constitutionally secular nation toward Islamicization.
And that's where his views start to become distorted (if they weren't already). Terrorism isn't a global problem, it's a global threat. It is a Muslim problem. The more the west caters to the destructive religion that is Islam, the worst it's going to get.
Terrorism would exist regardless of foreign policy. What foreign policy does is fuel the fire. It's the religion that spawns extremism that allows terrorism to exist. You can't stop Muslim extremism without considering the source.
