    Who cares “what makes it tick”? It is pondering over why the bear killed and ate someone. Perhaps they should simply accept that it is Islam.

    Wow…an intriguing line of thought here. I’m interested in reading more about this. Certainly there is a deep sickness in the Muslim world. Whether this is the base of the sickness or a symptom would be interesting to find out.
