It's amazing how good religion is at mobilizing people to do awful, murderous things. There is this dark side to it, and anyone who loves religious experience, including me, better begin to own there - a profound admission - in very well produced piece about 9/11 -

I might suggest that religion doesn't actually matter in the current situation. Instead, call the villains "vandals". They are throwbacks, evolutionary losers and left behinds who only grasp that they are locked out of modernity.
Many conflicts around the world have a very different complexion when seen as being between those peoples who are evolving and those who have been left behind to die out.
And despite humanitarian efforts to uplift the failures, I fear that they are destined to fail: their only recourse? to destroy what they cannot understand!
So, do we passively sit back and let them try to destroy us, or do we give Darwin a hand and exterminate them?

Who, the guys who see things in simplistic either/or black and white? Hmmm....
