There has been the idea that ordinary people will never encounter a terrorist event, and I pray that you are right. But it is very important to be prepared for the possibility that you might have to desecrate a terrorist.
Right now, approximately 5 million have left Syria. The E.U. has become very fragile and threatens to become destabilized under the onslaught of a sea of desperate people. Scarily enough, there are some predicted numbers that are in the tens of millions. While that may be too fantastic to imagine, think of emptying a whole country and having them pour into every corner of the world, carrying an alien culture that is largely intolerant of other religious faiths, that regularly jails, tortures and kills women, girls, LGBTs and other minorities.

Everywhere these people have settled, there has been a push to establish Shariah law courts. Whereas other religions have tribunals and courts, none are as repressive and do not include efforts to subjugate whole communities as with Islam. Shariah law brings female genital mutilation, child brides, forced prostitution, domestic abuse with no route of escape and the honor killings of women, girls and LGBTs.
These people do not want to adopt and assimilate to Western culture and ideas. They seek to make their host countries more like their Middle Eastern home. ISIS, by its own admission, has embedded operatives in these desperate people, as well as spreading a deep, abiding hatred of Western secularized, multi-religious, multicultural societies, who strive to be inclusive, even accepting of alternative lifestyles.
For those of you in Europe, you know that you are in an armed camp that threatens to fall apart from the stress and strain of so many people. Those of you in the U.S. are facing the same problem if Hillary Clinton is allowed to become president and stronger vetting is not put in place. In any case, no one in the West is safe from this onslaught, aided by liberal politicians who are out of touch with their own countries.
The idea of desecration has deep Semitic roots, especially in ancient Egyptian culture. Bodies of the dead were carefully preserved. Desecrating a body actually destroyed the soul. This point of view is a departure from Western thought. In the West, desecrating a body is a sin that falls upon the desecrator, but desecration in Semitic culture means damning the soul of the person who is desecrated.

While this is ugly and brutal, it may be the only way that we can stop suicide attackers and the forced Islamization of the world. Jailing them makes them heroes. Killing them only makes them martyrs. And the families of these attackers benefit monetarily and gain respect from the Islamic community as the families of martyrs and a heroes, inspiring more to act. Unless we are willing to act, we could easily lose everything that we value and hold dear including the personal freedom to live and believe the way we want to. Do not allow this army of darkness to overwhelm our world.
Islam is very extreme faith, especially fundamentalist Islam. Living desecration is the only real way to cripple the radical Islamic movement and break its spirit. Their religious, political and military leaders are what they draw strength from and what spurs them to commit horrendous acts. But the guilt of the target must be undeniable and easily documented for the public to review. We do not harm the innocent, even those who are of a different faith.
Living desecration is reserved for the worst offenders, people who have engaged in rape, murder, genocide or at least grooming others to commit those acts, as with the case of a radical imam. Permanently marking them is condemning them to a living death, cut away from any form of Islam, and hunted by their own, as a matter of honor.
