I'm sad I missed this thread until now. First, some facts. That usually helps.
1. The maximum number of suicide bombings have not been conducted by terrorists adhering to Islam, they have actually been carried out by Tamils in Sri Lanka (Hindus). FYI.
2. There is a great amount of research that has been done that shows that relying on individual characteristics to explain who becomes a terrorist holds little weight when tested on actual empirical data based on passed terrorist acts. These include gender (men and women), education levels, socialization and particularly religion -- terrorists don't necessarily belong to or adhere to extreme factions of their religion. They carry out suicide attacks because they work in garnering attention to whatever cause the group they support espouses. They use this strategy because it works.

This reflects limited understanding of the Muslim world. Not all Islamic countries follow Shariah law and I'm not sure I understand the connection between Shariah which really affects individual rights under it with the perceived terrorist acts against the West. Wahabbism is the extreme sect that is best connected to terrorism across the West but also in South Asia. That is only one part of Islam which is diverse in itself in the way it is followed around the world. There is no single set of core beliefs so railing against them is just poorly informed.This soapbox has nothing to do with spreading hatred, but rather is a means of defending human liberty and encouraging much-needed reform within the Muslim world-reform which cannot take place so long as Shariah law, and the core beliefs which sustain it, is in place.
