Well, there is the clear correlation between suicide attacks and foreign occupation. If we get rid of the latter, the former should also dwindle to nothing.
Some of the violence in Europe can be attributed to foreign occupation. The IRA are the obvious example.
The fact that Europeans are violent with each other even in the absence of foreign occupation does not contradict the OP's claim that certain types of violence are due to foreign occupation. It is possible for foreign occupation to lead to suicide attacks and for Europeans to have other reasons for killing each other.

I agree, but that applies equally well to the Middle East. Again, I seriously doubt ME countries will not go to war (which often involves occupation) with each other.
