Indonesian ship piracy events with kidnapping about 10 people crew (ABK) last week (30/3/16) conducted by the Abu Sayyaf in Mindanao, southern Philippines. The Abu Sayyaf is the most radical factions among the different fractions of paramilitary ranks of the Moro people against the Government of the Philippines.

Five days earlier, on Friday (25/3/2016), a suicide bomber killed 74 people, especially women and children who were enjoying the Gulshan-i-Iqbal, Iqbal Park, Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan. Jama'ah al-Ahrar affiliated with one faction of the Taliban said the target of the bombing was the Christian people who are celebrating Easter; but about two-thirds of deaths and injuries are Muslims.

Before that, three days earlier, suicide bombers detonated two bombs at Zaventem Airport, Brussels, and one more bombs in Metro Station, Maalbeck, Brussels, which killed over 30 people. The bomber detonated a bomb as he shouted in Arabic.

The culprit, the two brothers Ibrahim and Khalid el-Bakroui, a Belgian citizen of Moroccan descent, has been associated with a bombing in Paris (13/11/2015), which killed over 130 people. ISIS has claimed responsibility for the bombings in Brussels and Paris.

The third actor is the sad events --use euphemism Indonesian-elements, both individuals and groups of Muslims. Whether explicitly or implicitly, the individual and the group responsible for the events heartbreaking declare their actions in the name of Islam for the sake of the cause of Islam and the Muslims.

The third event in the name of Islam inhumane it is only a short barrage of various incidents of violence by Muslim elements that have occurred since the beginning of the new millennium. The series of events that can be started with the events of nine-eleven, 9/11 or 11 September 2001 in New York, Washington DC, and of Philadelphia, USA. US and allied invasion to Afghanistan in retaliation against the Taliban and Osama bin Laden is thought to be responsible, accelerating radicalization among Muslims.

After that could be seen a series of suicide bombings committed Muslim elements in Bali (10/12/2002), Marriott, Jakarta (August 5, 2003), Madrid (03/11/2004), London (07/07/2005) , Bali II (10/01/2005), and so on. List of action terosisme they do very long.

According to various sources, from September 2001 until March 2016, the officers and Muslim groups have done 28.056 attacks were categorized as an act of terrorism that killed more than 100 thousand inhabitants.

Once again, violence or terrorism by individuals and groups of persons may be mostly genuine, pure they do. The group is driven spirit of sectarianism, religious denominations, political, tribes, cultural, social, and economic ideology smolder vent their anger against the various parties --allowed so different other Muslim communities familiar with them or their state government or foreign parties, such as US or other Western countries.

Individuals and groups of Muslim officers second category are those who become agents and accomplices of certain parties --in their own country or internationally. Already many disclosed, for example, bin Laden initially assisted the CIA in its struggle against the Soviet occupation of Afghanistan since 1985. The CIA then is like raising a "cub" --Bin Laden against the party who raised him.

However, there are also among this second group that remained faithful to the intellectual actors hidden. Among ordinary Muslims who do not understand the complexity excited this conspiracy became the victims --fall into various forms of violence.

Regardless of whether the violence is genuine or conspiracy, the impact on Islam and Muslims is very bad. Endless barrage of violence as by individuals and or groups of Muslim officers have made the image of Islam and Muslims in throughout immersed into the abyss, a dark bottomless depths.

Violence was also making life an absolute majority of Muslims who love peace becomes increasingly difficult. Not easy for them to obtain a visa to travel into many countries. The names of the typical Muslim into the watch list that requires lengthy clarification before it can be processed embassies of many countries.

So, violence is not made Islam and Muslims is increasing pride and dignity. Marwah Islam and Muslims obviously can not be enforced through violence is not religious basis and inhumane. Marwah and dignity of Islam and Muslims can only be realized by peaceful means, in accordance dignity of humanity and the guidance of Islam rahmatan lil 'Alamin peaceful.
