Muslim terrorist group is a contrast issue, they are the one who openly opposes the US Oppression but on another side, they are blamed for being a terrorist. The story started with oppression on Muslim countries everywhere: Afghanistan was invaded by USSR army, then 1991, Iraq also was attacked as a response call from the US to Kuwaiti aid request, then in 2001, Afghanistan was invaded and occupied by the U.S, then the raid over Taliban and all its organization in Pakistan and Afghanistan, the military operation in Iraq, 2003, and daily killing upon Palestinian since 1967 with no ending etc. So, the counter upon oppression rises but unfortunately, those who struggled to defend Muslim territories against US invasion are called as a “terrorist”. Once upon a time in 2000, Bali was the most destined of tourism but unexpectedly, a big tragedy happened in Indonesia with the bomb explosion in Bali Island and killed 202 people, most of the victims were foreign tourists (including 88 Australians, and 38 Indonesian citizens). The result of investigations pointed to “Jemaah Islamiyah” as an actor of that incident. The national and International news media posted that “Jamaah Islamiyah” did a terror on the basis of jihad against America and its allies who invaded a Muslim country, but unfortunately, the victims were civilians who have nonsense affiliated with politics. Why Jamaah Islamiyah did so? Where do they got influenced in their extremism? In the view of Imam Samudra: it is compulsory for a Muslims to do fight back as a retreat action, hence it is permissible to kill any American, European found in Muslim countries, based on the verse of Holy Quran: Kill the  Musyrikin anywhere you found them! (Attaubah: Verse: 5). Keywords:Terrorist, Extremism, and Radical Muslim Group
