<"Second, someone who is Muslim may commit an act of violence that is utterly unrelated to his or her religion, and is motivated by something else entirely.">
How about the one from a couple of years ago where a Muslim couple opened up a new cable tv station to portray the lack of attention given to moderate Muslims. The opening of the station was played out with great fanfare with plenty of fluff pieces telling a heartwarming feel good story.
Fast forward to the cable station becoming a total financial failure due to lack of viewers. When the wife decided that she wanted out of the marriage, the husband decided that that was an unacceptable choice on her part. He beheaded her in the middle of the vacent tv studio.
This wasn't an act of terrorism unless you happened to be the woman who literally lost her head. I'm sure the action had nothing to do with the man's religion as that type of thing happens every day among secular people too.
