Religious groups turn violent when they feel threatened by another sect and are then forced to challenge their own beliefs, scientists discover

The Alter of Islam

Religious conflict can occur when a group of people who share the same belief or religion feel threatened by another expanding group.

This xenophobia then becomes violent in 20 per cent of cases when people start to question their own beliefs and ideals.


The tragedy of the Arabs

A thousand years ago, the great cities of Baghdad, Damascus and Cairo took turns to race ahead of the Western world. Islam and innovation were twins. The various Arab caliphates were dynamic superpowers—beacons of learning, tolerance and trade. Yet today the Arabs are in a wretched state. Even as Asia, Latin America and Africa advance, the Middle East is held back by despotism and convulsed by war.


Breaking: Police in Indiana Respond to Mass-Stabbing at a Religious Event with 150 People Involved

There’s breaking news to report coming out of Greenwood, Indiana where it appears that 150 are involved in what’s described as a “brawl” at a Religious temple, with several people being stabbed.

The incident occurred at around 3 PM, according to law enforcement, at the Gurdwara Shri Guru Hargobind Sahib Ji Sikh Temple on 1050 S. Graham Road in Greenwood, where the Mayor’s Office had originally reported that six to twelve people have been stabbed, according to Fox 59 .


Why Didn’t South Korea Return Fire During Dramatic Defection?

No idea:

With a North Korean solider remaining in critical condition from multiple gunshot wounds he suffered as he dashed across the border to defect, some South Koreans are questioning why the South Korean soldiers did not provide covering fire for him.

Four North Korean soldiers at the Joint Security Area inside the heavily fortified border zone fired about 40 rounds at the escaping solider. They shot southward. It is unclear whether they continued to shoot after the solider entered the South’s territory. South Korean soldiers rescued him only after the shooting ended.

The soldier, whose rank and identity have not been disclosed, underwent a second surgery Wednesday at a hospital south of Seoul. The surgery was “successful,” but he is still in a critical condition, according to doctor Lee Cook-jong, who performed the operation.

Military officials and analysts in Seoul said the military’s refrained response was the right move, given that the US commander assumes operational control in the JSA and any small-scale conflicts run the risk of escalating into an all-out war.

“I think our soldiers did a pretty good job,” South Korea’s Defense Minister Song Young-moo told lawmakers on Tuesday. “They made a good judgment call to minimize the risk and deal with the North Korean soldier appropriately.”


They have given the North Koreans a carte blanche to fire with impunity.


Don’t link mental illness with violent crime

A debate is raging south of the border regarding the role of mental illness in extreme acts of violence, with President Donald Trump announcing that the recent Texas church shooting that left 26 people dead was “a mental health problem at the highest level.”

This article is deliberately misleading; it begins by questioning the reasons for mass shootings and then segues into “all homicides” for its conclusions. And why, pray tell, is “mental illness” the #1 excuse the media uses when Muslims are involved in a mass attack?
