I'm starting this thread to know the answer, I don't have them all. And neither does anyone else, but together perhaps we can arrive at a rational,
logical conclusion that, and I must stress this, that are not driven purely by emotions. Lets limit emotions as little as possible here, be a bit
Vulcan if you may.
My question is, why do the people that are rioting and/or calling out death threats and/or willing to commit suicide bombings or condone it who
profess to be a muslim commiting these violent acts?
Because you don't see it everywhere. You see it in quite a number muslim-majority countries, but not the half of them, not the majority, but just
here and there. Granted even so their numbers are still pretty huge, but the world is large, plenty of people -- 6-point-something billion last I
checked, of around which a billion or so are said to be muslims.
Right now from what I know, only Aghanistan, Lebanon, Syria, Sudan and Libya are rioting or having violent demonstrations. I may have missed out some,
not intentionally but because I was not aware of it or it didn't come to me.
There are others places where there are protests, but let them be, it's their right to freedom of speech, no?
As for terrorists, they come from plenty of places, it seems, but there are certainly regions which seem to generate more of them.
And death threats? You get it from all sorts of people, religious or not, so let's leave that out, unless they follow up on it and actually do it.
So what's wrong with these regions/countries? Why do people who are living there and/or grew up there and/or got educated there acting this way? Why
do people who come from this or that said region professing to be muslims doing this?
Tell me this. Because I only know the story of one country aside from my own. I'd like to know what any of you think about the others, about those
