Are All Muslims Terrorists?

Ever since I started to understand what terrorism was and how it was affecting peace around the globe, I have been trying to find its root cause. However, I often find all fingers pointing toward Muslims. We hear loud cries of Islamic terrorism - words like Islamic Jehad (Jihad) keep reverberating everywhere. Most people have started calling that Muslims are terrorists. But even as a non-Muslim, I have deep reverence for the Qoran and have read several of its verses - nowhere have I found the Holy Book of Muslims inciting its followers to wage a bloody battle against innocents. Then why are the loud cries of Muslims are terrorists or Islamic terrorism heard everywhere?

I believe Muslims are not terrorists or for that matter, all Muslims are not terrorists.
