Since this last bit of terrorist news hit rather close to home I had a few thoughts on the motivation behind a lot of these people.
Oh, religion is behind a lot of it, but the main cause of all this bullshit is the mental health of the people involved.
That's right bunky, unfortunately for the more fanatical amongst us, Richard Dawkins was right when he said that any sort of religious belief system is a form of mental illness. And that's not just Islam folks ...., it's Christianity, Judaism, Wicca, Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Scientologists and some Eastern Religions as well. (Although I have to admit that some of the Eastern Religions aren't quite as crazy as the Western stuff!)
The lack of critical thinking doesn't really favour one belief system over another folks, so it seems to me that you could just as easily be a terrorist ......., or a Jehovah's Witness!
While we're on the subject of "crazy" I realize that Donald Drumpf is nuts ...., but I find it not only amazing, but deeply scary and disturbing that a good percentage of the U.S. population can agree with hm! (That is until I remember that Hitler did the same thing in Germany back in the 30's!)
