Why are so many Muslims violent in the modern era?

15 December 2014 - 11:56 AM

Catchy thread title right.


Yeah I know, not all or even most Muslims are violent but still I question why there are so many violent incidents occurring that are in the name of Allah. And I get that people are violent and they find ways to express it but I don't see that many Christians (who out number all other religions) frequently blowing people up or taking people hostage in the name of Jesus. So I have to wonder if there is more to it than religion being a tool to express violence.


Is there something about the religion in particular? I am assuming there is a particular theological doctrine or interpretation that has gained popularity. Seems likely considering that's how it works with other religions I'm familiar with.  Idk enough about Islam to make a guess, I'm curious if anyone on here does.   (It would make sense that politics and socioeconomic status of the countries that are mostly Islamic play a big role). 


Sorry if I offended anyone with my post. I keep hearing all these reasons why Islam has nothing to do with the violence that is being done in it's name and maybe it doesn't but often I see flaws in the reasons given. 



Chilling images from Australian media on Monday showed people, believed to be hostages, with their hands pressed against the cafe's windows. They were holding up a black flag with Arabic writing on it reading, "There is no God but God and Mohammed is the prophet of God."

Anyone else listening to it?  I finally started listening to it and am obsessed. 



(I was going to do a search to see if there is a thread already on it but couldn't find the search feature.)

I just took this quiz and found the results interesting. Tells you what candidates you are closest to in regards to political beliefs.
