I’ve been researching a lot lately into the Muslim extremist movement. As I’ve been reading, a question has come into my mind:
How can anyone think that their God, who is supposed to be a merciful, loving, and caring God, would sanction killing innocent men, women, and especially children to prove a point?
I really just don’t get it. Some of the descriptions of terrorist attacks disgust me, especially since these terrorists believe that they will receive some sort of divine reward for their actions. How could any man in his right mind think this was ok?
And I specifically said God rather than Allah because I know there are Christian/Catholic extremists too who commit acts just like that, or even worse (such as the 11th-13th century Crusades), and religious wars and persecutions constantly raging around the globe. I really just don’t get it.
