Although some media have classified the "classic terrorist" as muslim, I don't think the whole thing is tied too much to one single religion. To me it seems to be mostly the extremist/fanatic groupings using so called 'terror' as primary weapon, especially against civilians/innocent victims because it is supposed to be more effective (demoralising) than killing "ready-to-die" soldiers. Also, what else can you do against a stronger military power than literally attacking the soldiers family and make him (mentally) weak.

In the end, if the military enemy is too powerful, attacks will turn against non-military targets, no matter if the aggressor is of military nature or not.
