Islam is not a cult, it is a meme.
All beliefs are memes.
The various extremist 'cults' of all Islamic sects are offshoots of the original Islam meme that have evolved into their own distinct forms, during the long periods of historical human / meme bio-feedback.
All such beliefs are nothing more than 'memes' which infect human minds and then take control of their host and change its hosts behaviour / culture rather as Toxoplasmosis does with cats, rats and humans ;
As a meme the various sects of Islam, like all such memes, have their own distinct pathology.
As with all memes, if one wishes to 'kill' it, then you must target those infected with the meme and also those who are transmitting it. At the same time you must 'jam' its transmission into the wider community.
That means moderate Muslims must speak out loudly and constantly condemn Islamists of all sects and work to keep extremist sects from spreading into their communities.
This prevents the spread of the progenitors of rogue memes like Wahhabism and Deobanidismn that assist in the spawning of ever more extremist memes such as Al Qaeda and the Taliban spreading into a community and infecting new individuals.
This is why you see Deobandi Shiites in Pakistan attacking Sufi's.
It is a war of memes, played out by their meat puppets.
At the same time as moderate Islam speaks out and condemns the extremists, the state must hunt down and deal with the extremists and the promoters of extremism.
Neither requirements are being undertaken at sufficient levels at the moment.

Memes are shaped by natural selection therefore the only way to kill a meme is to destroy the environment which enabled it to form and remove the benefits which that meme provides. Even this will not kill the meme only cause it to mutate. Once all the benefits are identified a shorter and faster route to achieving those benefits must be provided (because evolution is based on thermodynamics and the conservation of energy/ entropy principles) The benefit is usually status in a community and currently we see young islmic men turning to organised crime as an alternative way of gaining their status. Here lay the answers.
New meme: racially loyal Islam. That's one we can all benefit from. (After getting rid of any alien rituals that do not appeal to your racial soul.)
It would say Allah created all the races and that none is meant to oppress any of the others.
The Jews want a soft degenerate Islam, but this kind of fundamentalism would be good for our people.
This meme should be favoured by natural selection and also be eugenic.
It is easier to have racially loyal Islam than racially loyal Christianity because the latter has a Bible full of surrender to enemies and the former tells followers only to submit to Allah which is the Laws of Nature. At least it is consistent.
The multiracialism in Islam (as much as it exists amongst fiercely tribalist peoples) comes from a Hadith and is easily contradicted by passages in the Koran.
And the things on this earth which He has multiplied in varying colors (and qualities): verily in this a Sign for men who celebrate the praises of Allah (in gratitude).
And among his signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the variations in your language and your colours; verily in that are Signs for those who know.
35:27 and 28
Seest thou not that Allah sends down rain from the sky? With it We then bring out produce of various colours. And in the mountains are tracts white and red, of various shades of colour, and black intense in hue.
And so, amongst men and crawling creatures and cattle, are they of various colours. Those truly fear Allah, among His Servants, who have knowledge: for Allah is exalted in Might, Oft Forgiving.
If you turn back (from the Path, which is to be in tune with natural law) He will substitute in your stead another people; then they would not like you. [Survival of the fittest].
