> > I wonder what kind of people would carry out such an act. We hear it blamed increasingly on militant Islamic fundamentalists. What kind of religion would sanction such things? I can only hope and believe that the "Islam" of these people equates more closely to the "Christianity" of Hitler and the KKK than it does to any true sense of what Islam is about. Religion can be used to justify almost anything if you're willing to twist it far enough. But just the fact that there are human beings in this world who would willing kill themselves and tens of thousands of others in the name of their God without a second thought scares the hell out of me.
> I'm no scholar of Islam but as I understand, the Qu'ran calls for Muslims to live in peace and harmony with unbelievers. Especially the "People of the Book" - those whose religions derive from one of the 12 prophets who arrived before Mohammed, including both Jesus and Moses.
> Hitler was not (in private, at least) a Christian, but was an Odinist.

And even that was twisted out of all recognition.
